Pumpkin Pistachio Truffles

Did someone say pistachio???

Pistachios are my husband’s favorite nut and his favorite kind of ice cream, so anything pistachio is a big hit at our house. Combine it with pumpkin…some sweetness and we have a winner of a dessert!

Not only am I crushing on these flavor combinations, I adore the crunch from the pistachios…the teeny bit of salt from them too. Plus the pumpkin and white chocolate.

PLEASE…make these for your holiday cookie exchange! They are more delicious and way more interesting than ‘bark’ or cut out cookies! You’ll impress your friends/family and will have everyone begging for the recipe!
