I love to make candies for holidays
and decided this year that
needed a special candy all it's own...
pecan pie truffles!
Pecan Pie Truffles
makes 4 dozen
2 1/2 cups pecans, divided
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
1 package chocolate candy coating
Combine 2 1/4 cups pecans, graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, salt, syrup and flavorings.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Roll into balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Dip balls into melted candy coating and sprinkle with a bit of pecans.
Place on wax paper to harden.
