gluten free pumpkin truffles

This pumpkin truffle recipe is so easy to make and delicious! If you are a fan of Reese’s pumpkin-shaped peanut butter cups, I know you will love this copycat recipe that is gluten free, can be made dairy free and made with real pumpkin!

I do love the pumpkin shaped Reese’s this time of year, and in my opinion no homemade recipe is exactly the same, but if you’re looking for a treat that is similar and made with simple ingredients, these peanut butter truffles are definitely it!

Packed with pumpkin and pumpkin spice, and sweetened with honey, they’re not overly sweet, and make for the perfect treat if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth in a sensible way. The halloween sprinkles are totally optional, but do make for cute halloween truffles if you’re making these at the end of October!

Melted milk, dark or white chocolate is quite literally the icing on top each of these gluten free truffles. If chocolate is not your thing or you just don’t feel like coating them, these truffles would also be delicious as is!

Pumpkin truffles are the perfect pumpkin treat to stash in your freezer for when the craving for something sweet strikes.
