Ingredients
  • 2½ cups pecans, plus more pecan halves for topping
  • 1 cup vanilla wafer cookies
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 10 ounce bags white chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, add pecans and vanilla wafers and pulse until you have fine crumbs.
  2. Pour crumbs into large bowl and add brown sugar, corn syrup, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  3. Use a tablespoon scoop to scoop mixture and form into balls. Drop balls onto parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  4. Place full baking sheet into the freezer for 30 minutes.
  5. Pour one bag of chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds on high. Remove from microwave and stir. Continue these steps until chips are melted.
  6. Take truffles out of freezer. Insert a toothpick into truffles and dip into chocolate. It's easier to coat truffle by using a small spatula to push chocolate over truffle.
  7. Remove from chocolate and place back on baking sheet. Pull the toothpick out and top with a pecan halve to cover the hole.
  8. Melt the remaining white chocolate as needed.
