Halloween is right around the corner and if you’re anything like me you aren’t organised at all? I’m not a huge fan of going all out for Halloween because Christmas is more my jam but I do like experimenting with food and throwing a scary film night with allllll the sweets and treats, these No-bake Pumpkin Truffle Mummies are easy peasy to make and hardly take anytime at all (other than the chilling) but hey, they are worth the wait, if you have a sweet tooth you will ~love~ these.
: YOU WILL NEED :
. 1 1/2 Cups of Ginger Nut Biscuit Crumbs
. 1/4 Cup Tinned Pumpkin Puree
. 1/3 Cup Basic Cracker Crumbs
. 3 TBSP Icing Sugar
. 1/4 TSP Ground Cinnamon
. 1/8 TSP Salt
. 3 OZ Cream Cheese
. 1/2 Cup White Choc Chips
. 1 Bar White Cooking Chocolate
. Red Food Colouring
: HOW TO :
1. In a large bowl, add all of the dry ingredients along with the cream cheese and mix together, (you will need to use a blender to make the biscuit and cracker crumbs first) Mix until it forms a smooth paste.
2. Melt 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips and add to the mixture.
3. Cover with cling film and pop in the freezer for an hour or so until the mixture is set and you can roll into bite-sized balls.
4. Split mixture and start rolling into small balls and then poke cocktail sticks in.
Melt the white cooking chocolate and start dipping in your truffle balls until fully covered, I also used some of the chocolate on a whisk and trickled it over the mummies to create a textured finish.
Using a cocktail stick and red food colouring, create the mummies eyes.
Chill in fridge until chocolate has hardened.
It’s that easy, and if you are feeling extra generous you can hand them out to trick or treaters…..however, I demolished these the day I made them…. whoops!!
