If you ask us it’s always pie season and we don’t need a holiday excuse to dig into all of our favorites. And pie isn’t what it used to me. We can now enjoy it in many forms…..hand pie, mini-pie, pie on a stick…the possibilities are endless. We took some inspiration from one of the most popular recipes of recent years and made an old-fashioned pecan pie in the form of an irresistible truffle.

The best part about these treats is that there is no oven required. Can’t bake? No problem! Don’t want a sink full of dishes to wash after making dessert? We’ve got you covered! The hardest part about making these truffles is waiting to eat them. But, be prepared. When they are ready to eat, you won’t be able to eat just one. Give them a try and let us know what you think!
