Looking for something different to serve this holiday season? How about some Pecan Pie Truffles!
**This post is sponsored by Fisher Nuts. I am excited to be partnering with them this year and bringing you all some delicious recipes! **
Here I am just two weeks away from Thanksgiving, sharing some delicious holiday recipes with you all, and I’ve been playing tricks on my husband for 10 days now.
You see, if it were up to me, my Christmas tree would be up the day after Halloween. I love Christmas. I love my decorations. I love the music. And I love the meaning behind the holiday.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Thanksgiving too. But for me, Thanksgiving is a day to be Thankful, eat turkey, lots of pie and enjoy family and friends. It’s not really a “season.” It’s more of a reminder day. A reminder day that happens to fall in MY Christmas season.
Oh, you think I’m wrong about it being Christmas season? Have you walked into a Target store yet??? My local radio station is playing Christmas music 24/7 already. And….
I’ve been putting up my decorations. For 10 days. I’ve been sneaking a few here and there. Until suddenly, most of decorations are up (minus the tree of course)!
I kid you not people, it’s quite funny. My end tables are covered in holiday picture frames, my mantle has some reindeer and the three wise men. My dining room is screaming red and green…and my husband hasn’t even noticed.
My kids? Yeah, they’re in on it with me! Although I suppose after this blog post my husband will finally “see” it. He actually does read my blog after all.
So, to make him happy, let’s talk PIE. I love pumpkin pie this time of year. Well, technically I love ALL things pumpkin this time of year, but I especially love pie. And, if you’ve been following my blog for any period of time, you will notice there are no homemade pie crust recipes around here. My blog is not OOZING with pie recipes. I, dear friends, am “Pie Crust Challenged.”
There. I admitted it. A couple years ago I made some Pumpkin Pie Truffles. They are still requested by my husbands work this time of year. But I thought, why not a pecan pie truffle? It screams Thanksgiving!
Fisher Nuts and Karo Syrup have joined forces this year to bring you some delicious recipes! Including, 3 Nut Pie, Caramel Apples, and Perfect Pecan Bars. As a Fisher Nuts brand ambassador, I was asked to create a recipe using these two holiday essential products. My first thought was to make a pecan pie. But since I am pie crust challenged it only made sense to skip the pie and go straight to candy.
The centers of these truffles are soft and nutty, with the right balance of pecans, corn syrup, brown sugar and vanilla wafer cookies! I couldn’t decide if I wanted to dip them in vanilla or chocolate candy coating, so I went for both! I love they way they turned out, both in presentation AND in taste!
This year while planning YOUR holiday menu, think Fisher.
