Pumpkin Cheesecake Truffles

My favorite dessert is cheesecake, and when you add pumpkin to it…Oh, Momma.  This delectable treat is perfect for fall.  Impress your family and friends by bringing this goody to an Autumn party.  It’s so simple to make, you’ll wonder why you didn’t indulge in this sooner. 

A note about the melted white chocolate: If you’re like me, you’ve probably had a hard time keeping the white chocolate melted.  If you heat the white chocolate on the stove and add some coconut oil to it, the chocolate will stay nice and creamy.

This recipe makes about 14-16 truffles.
