No Bake Pumpkin Pie Balls Recipe

Pumpkin pie balls were supposed to be pumpkin Oreo balls of some sort.

Shelley and I were experimenting with recipes, and this one didn’t quite go as planned.

However, what we ended up with was even better than our goal.

For once, our reality turned out to be better than the expectation.

Gotta love when that happens.

So, the plan was to make pumpkin Oreo balls or pumpkin truffles.

Shelley had a vision of coating them all in orange colored chocolate, decorating each one, and creating a pumpkin patch. Hahahaha. Nope.

The dough balls just weren’t having that idea.

We started to think the recipe was a complete fail until we raided Gram’s pantry.

Crushed graham crackers were just the ticket to give the perfect flavor of pumpkin pie.

With a quick dot of green gel food coloring, Shelley still got her pumpkins.

We were able to stage a small pumpkin patch using cereal as “hay” and some pumpkin candy.

Our Gram’s house is so perfect for staging photos.

She has all the cool photo props.

Plus, my grandparents love that we leave the treats there for them!

The texture of these little dough bites is soft and light.

They need to be refrigerated and get pretty soft if left out for too long.

If we had successfully covered the balls in chocolate, they would have been way too sweet.

With the graham crackers, it’s just the right balance of salty and sweet.

I dont think hey look bad at all. You know sometimes our 'fails' leads us in a different direction and it turns out just fine. I really like using pumpkin when I can, it is high vitamin C and is good for you too.
