These Pumpkin Dulce De Leche Pecans Balls make a delicious and relatively simple autumn dessert.
But before we start talking about this fabulous treat, I’ve got a very disturbing news to share. Nope, it’s not about coyotes again (Not now).
I’ve seen the first house with the Christmas decorations and lights being up!
Specifically, I saw it this Monday on my way to work, so I assume the people did this at least on the weekend.
Also, let me save your time from providing me with some reasonable explanation. Those WEREN’T Halloween decorations. Nope, they were perfectly Christmas-themed.
I mean. Monday, October 23rd.
Seriously?! (Well, I know that I’m repeating the same thing over and over. It’s just hard to get over this).
Two months until Christmas!
Pumpkin Dulce De Leche Pecans Balls
I get when stores start selling Christmas stuff quite early (Although I saw first examples in September which is way too earlier), but the house… Seriously?
Personally, I prefer to see any Christmas decorations not earlier than in the mid-end of November. Okay, I can deal with the beginning of November as well. In my book, the festive look should be limited to short time frames, otherwise, it might become just meaningless.
All right. Enough about this event. Let’s talk about these luscious Pumpkin Dulce De Leche Pecans Balls for a minute although I believe you should eat a dessert instead of talking.
Certainly, these treats require a little of your time if you decide to bake the biscuit as I did (I won’t judge if you grab store-bought, though). I baked the biscuit (Used this recipe) the night before finishing the treats the next morning, so this didn’t seem extremely tedious to me.
Also, although I’m giving the proportions, you don’t need to strictly follow them. First of all, you might need to cut the ingredients in half (or more) as the mentioned amount yields in around 40 balls.
Besides, you can freely play with a ratio of biscuit crumbs. In my case, I used up most of the cake (about 8 cups) leaving out just a little of it, the most dried edges. Start with fewer crumbs gradually adding more until you’ve achieved the preferred consistency. As you see, in my case I got a very luscious,
moist (Sorry, I know that this a forbidden word in the food world). If you wish to get a drier texture, you’ll need to add in more biscuits or even ground pecans.
When the balls are ready, you’ve got to roll them in dulce de leche. Please be strong, and don’t lick the caramel off the plate as I m
ight have certainly didn’t do. You don’t need to perfectly cover the treats in dulce de leche. Indeed it’s almost impossible due to a crumbly texture, so don’t worry about few missed spots.
The very last step would be rolling the balls into roasted pecans, and they’re ready to be served!
Not quite yet. I do recommend to let them stay at room temperature for about an hour, just to set. However, I will understand you if you
steal sample right away. Because these Pumpkin Dulce De Leche Pecans Balls make an irresistibly delicious dessert.
