Pumpkin Ganache

When we made the filled bon-bons, I wanted something that had a different texture from the other fillings. Pumpkin pie is one of Jake’s favorite desserts, and this filling has an interesting element to it, with the graham cracker crumbs. The least messy way I know of to crush graham crackers in to put them in a zipper-top bag. Remove as much air as you can, seal the bag and smash the graham crackers with a rolling pin or meat tenderizer. Make sure to do this on a surface that won’t be damaged.

6 ounces white chocolate, melted
1 1/2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs (measure after crushing)

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Use to fill chocolate bonbons.
