5 Minute Gluten-Free No-Bake Crispy Chocolate Pumpkin Bites

Chocolate Pumpkin Bites

I was playing with molecular gastronomy the other day to make treats for a birthday party and nothing was working.  Jonathan kept reminding me that I pride myself on being an experimental blogger so I can’t expect things to work every time.  But, I do expect recipes to work every time – I’m an eternal optimist.

Time was running out; I had to leave in ten minutes and I had no dessert ready to bring!  I peeked in my refrigerator and realized that I had some leftover pumpkin puree.  Knowing that the birthday girl was on a gluten-free diet, I quickly created some no-bake gluten-free crispy chocolate pumpkin bites.  Start to finish, this recipe took five minutes and it is hella good!  It tastes like a chocolate truffle crossed with a pumpkin pie and a Rice Krispie treat!  I love challenging crazy recipes, but sometimes easy recipes win and I just need to take a deep breath and celebrate that.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 ounces dark chocolate melted in the microwave
  • 3 cups Rice Chex crushed (stick them in a sealed sandwich bag and roll over them with a rolling pin)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Notes

If you have extra time, you can chill the mixture for a few minutes before forming the balls. This will make it easier for the balls to stick together. However, this recipe will work even if you don't chill first.
