Pecan Pie Truffles

I have no doubt that you’re going to be quite angry with me once you make this recipe. Your upcoming Pecan Pie Truffles addiction can be squarely blamed on me… I’ll take it. These might be the most devilishly delicious fall treat that I’ve ever had. I love truffles with a passion and I’ve never had any that are better than these. 

I’ve always loved Pecan Pie filling, but not so much the crust. I’m not a huge fan of pies anyway. Most people tend to burn the crust when they’re making pecan pies… a big turnoff for me. So while Jen and I were planning what Fall themed recipes we wanted on the blog I mentioned pecan pie. I thought how delicious the filling would be and how much I would dread having to work with a crust just to be disappointed. Then and there the idea of pecan pie in truffle form took shape.

These are the stickiest, gooey-ist, pecan-iest, and best truffles that you’re going to have. I’m not kidding about the stickiest part… you’re going to get messy making these, but it’s totally worth it. They aren’t healthy in any way, but if you get invited to some creative truffle competition over the holidays then you’re well-prepared with these.

I’m a reformed quesadilla-holic, but we still go back from time to time. The best quesadillas we’ve ever made a home are of the bbq and chicken variety….
