Pumpkin Truffle Pops ( For Groovy Gourmets)


As every one is aware this is the month of Halloween and so Groovy Gourmets selected Halloween treats as the  theme for this month.

We were supposed to prepare somthing spooky for the event and I tried making these pops. Though I tried hard to make the faces scary I somehow ended up with these funny n cute looking faces and loved them popping in our mouth.

 As Halloween is incomplete without pumpkin treats I decided to make this pops with pumpkin. These Pumpkin pops are very easy to make and a great  fun to have for both kids as well as adults.

They taste very delicious and can be kept for few days in fridge.









Ingredients :

1/2 cup................pumpkin puree
1pack...................digestive biscuits ( I used digestive marie )
1/2 cup..................instant milk powder( I used Nestle)
1/4 cup..................sugar
1/4 tsp..................nutmeg powder
1/4 tsp.................cinammon powder

Chocolate Cover :

100 gm ................bitter chocolate ( Used Morde brand)
2 tbsp..................coffee powder
2 tbsp..................sugar
1 tbsp..................unsalted butter



Method for the pops :

Grind together marie biscuits, sugar and milk powder .

Add the puree, cinammon powder and nutmeg powder to it.

Now grease your palms with little butter and make small lemon sized balls of this mixture.

Keep the balls in fridge for about 1 hour .

Mine were in fridge for almost whole day.





Method for the chocolate sauce :

In a thick bottomed small vessel mix all the ingredients given for sauce.

Keep them stirring continuously on a slow flame .

Let the chocolate melt and coffee powder mix properly.

Remove from gas when thick and cool it.

Dip the chilled pops in this sauce and again keep them in fridge.

You can have these yummy pops as they are or can make eyes or mouth with icing if you want.
