White Chocolate Pumpkin Cups

These delicious little treats have quickly become a HUGE favorite of mine...which is strange because I am not a white chocolate lover, but these are DIVINE. I think I ate more than my share of them when I made them...oh well, its Christmas and I am entitled to indulge...just a little. They make a delicious treat for a potluck dish or just a yummy treat to eat while you watch all those wonderful Christmas shows you've been dying to see. THESE little bites are fabulous!!

White Chocolate Pumpkin Cups

2 packages of good quality white chocolate chips
1 T shortening
1/4 c. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. pumpkin puree
3/4 t. cinnamon
3/4 t. ginger
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. ground cloves
1/4 t. allspice
1 t. vanilla
1/4 c. powdered sugar
1 c. finely crushed graham crackers crumbs
sprinkles for topping

Spray mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Melt white chocolate chips and shortening in the top of a double boiler. Stir constantly to keep from burning. Turn heat on low when completely melted.
Place about 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate in prepared muffin tins, making sure to cover the bottom of each cup. The chocolate should be thick. Place muffin tin into the freezer for 15 minutes or until chocolate is completely set. In a medium bowl combine cream cheese, pumpkin, spices and the vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and stir until combined. Stir in the graham cracker crumbs. Roll mixture into small balls, enough to fill the muffin cups. Place one ball in each cup, smash down slightly. Cover with melted white chocolate, making sure the chocolate covers the sides as to seal the cup. Top with sprinkles. Chill. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
