Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups crushed vanilla wafers (about 12 ounces)
  • 1 cup toasted almonds, ground
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 cup (6-ounce package) semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup coffee liqueur
  • 1/2 cup toasted almonds, chopped
