These pumpkin shaped chocolate truffles are the perfect treat for your Halloween or Thanksgiving dessert table.
One of my good friends, Regina, also has a blog called Molly Mel. Regina often features Brazilian treats, such as Brigaderos, with her readers and she has shared a Halloween take on the Brigadero that is perfect for the holidays.
Halloween is such a fun time of the year to make and decorate themed desserts for the holiday or a party table. The look of the sweet treats just seems to put everyone in a party mood!
Whip up a Halloween treat with these pumpkin shaped chocolate truffles.
I love all of Regina’s chocolate dessert ideas. They are flavorful and so much fun. She has a knack for making them look festive too. The truffles are bite sized and make the perfect snack. I love the sugar crystals on the top. They really add a delightful presentation.

- 3 tablespoons white chocolate powder
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoons of butter
- a few drops of Food coloring (combine yellow & red to achieve the orange color)
- Orange sugar crystals
- 25 Semi-sweet morsels to decorate
- Mix together the condensed milk, chocolate powder, butter, and food coloring in a saucepan over medium-low heat being sure to stir constantly until the mixture becomes thick and shiny, and starts to pull away from the bottom & sides of the pan.
- Remove from the heat and pour the mixture into a greased plate.
- Let the mixture cool completely before rolling it into small balls.Putting it in the fridge helps.
- When the mixture has cooled, rub some softened butter on your hands. Using a small spoon scoop out the chocolate mixture and roll it into small balls.
- Roll each ball in the sugar crystals and place them in paper candy cups. To make the pumpkin shape press the top gently, and with a slightly wet toothpick make creases all around it. Add a chocolate biton top of each candy to resemble the pumpkin stem.
