Pecan Pie Truffles

Pecan Pie Truffles are the perfect treat to make this fall. They go great on a Thanksgiving buffet table, as a snack in your lunch, or put them in a cute little box and give them as a hostess gift.

Regardless of the reason you are making them, I guarantee they will disappear quickly! These Pecan Pie Truffles contain all of the delicious qualities of a pecan pie, but it is in a bite size portion.

These Pecan Pie Truffles also freeze really well.  Which makes them a perfect choice for the busy Thanksgiving host that likes to get as many things done ahead of time as possible.
