Soft, rich, and perfectly pumpkin-spiced, this no-bake recipe is just as easy to prepare as the Oreo Truffles you've probably known for years, but flavored for fall! Garnish these treats with a caramel or chocolate drizzle, or finish with a dusting of pumpkin pie spice. For a fun Halloween spin, add candy eyes to create adorable little ghosts or tasty mummy truffles.

Stages of cooking
Pulse sandwich cookies in a food processor until they reach a fine, sand-like consistency. Add in cream cheese, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Continue pulsing, scraping down the sides when needed, until a smooth, loose dough is formed.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop, measure out about 20 even portions of the dough (about 1 tablespoon a piece) onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Move to the freezer for 10 to 12 minutes. When the dough is firm enough, roll each portion into a ball shape. Move back to the freezer to harden slightly for 8 to 10 more minutes.
In a large, microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-intervals second, stirring in between, until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth. Drop each pumpkin spice ball into the chocolate. Using two forks, fully coat the dough in chocolate, let it drain, then place it back on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
Allow the truffles to cool to room temperature before topping with melted chocolate, caramel, or more pumpkin pie spice. Keep in the refrigerator until just before serving.
