  1.  In a bowl mix ground pistachios and graham crackers.

Note
– Use a food processor to blend the graham crackers until they are fine crumbs. Do the same for raw pistachios (I used medium crumbs for the pistachios).
– You can reduce the amount of syrup and increase the amount of peanut butter if you prefer.
– The syrup does not have to be pumpkin spice, you can use syrup of your choice.
– These truffles should be stored in the fridge.
