No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls Ingredients

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups good quality white chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli)
  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar
  • ⅔ cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1½ cups gingersnap crumbs
  • 12 ounces white almond bark (coating)
  • 1 cup orange candy melts (optional drizzle)

PRO TIP:

Watch out when you are at the grocery store that you buy pure pumpkin purée and not canned pumpkin pie filling.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CHOCOLATE: You can substitute chocolate almond bark or chocolate candy melts for the white almond bark in these no-bake cheesecake balls.

GRAHAM CRACKERS: If you can’t find graham cracker crumbs, you can crush whole graham crackers in a food processor or a Ziploc with a rolling pin until they are fine crumbs for these pumpkin spice cheesecake balls.

How to Make This No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls Recipe

STEP ONE: Add the white chocolate chips to a small heat-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval until completely melted and smooth. Set it aside.

STEP TWO: Using either a stand mixer or a large bowl and handheld electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar for 1½ to 2 minutes or until smooth.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature to avoid any lumps in the cream cheese mixture.

STEP THREE: Add the pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice and continue mixing for another 1 minute or until well combined and uniform in color.

STEP FIVE: Beat in the melted white chocolate chips. Mix just until well incorporated. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours and 15 minutes.

STEP SIX: Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set them aside. 

STEP SEVEN: Use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the pumpkin cheesecake mixture. Roll the dough into a ball and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Place the rolled balls back in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

PRO TIP:

If the cheesecake mixture is too loose to roll, you can add an additional 2 tablespoons of gingersnap crumbs to the mixture and chill for an additional 15 minutes.

STEP EIGHT: Add the white almond bark to a heat-safe mixing bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval until melted and smooth. Roll the cheesecake balls in the melted almond bark. Place the coated cheesecake ball onto a fork. Gently tap any excess coating off. You can use a spoon to pour the coating over any bare spots. Use a toothpick to gently push the coated cheesecake ball off the fork onto the second prepared baking sheet. Repeat the steps. Allow the coating to harden completely. 

PRO TIP:

If the coating becomes too thick, you can reheat the coating in the microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring well after each interval until smooth.

STEP NINE: Add the orange candy melts to a heat-safe small bowl. Heat in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval until melted and smooth. Use either a small spoon, a squeeze bottle, a fork, or a disposable decorator’s bag with the very end of the tip snipped. Drizzle the orange candy melts in the pattern of your choice. Allow the drizzled topping to harden completely before serving.

How To Serve

These pumpkin balls would be a great addition to any fall gathering, such as Thanksgiving. They would also be the perfect thing to add to homemade gifts to give to friends or family. Add our strawberry truffles and chocolate orange truffles for a trifecta of treats.

For more amazing pumpkin recipes, our pumpkin donuts and chocolate chip pumpkin bread are two more ways to enjoy this classic fall flavor.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Store any leftover pumpkin cheesecake truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. 

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze the uncoated mini cheesecake bites for up to 2 months. Add a layer of wax paper between the bites so they don’t stick together. Allow the frozen bites to thaw overnight in the refrigerator before coating.
