Iva Jean's Pumpkin Truffles

Debbie Hanks started Iva Jean's Fudge after she got an overwhelming response to her family's fudge recipe. Now the Waxhaw-based company has expanded to selling its confections online and through stores around Charlotte. 

Hanks uses organic and locally- sourced products whenever possible. 

"I love being creative with different mediums, but cooking and baking have always been a part of my life,” Debbie says. “I love to make fudge and create new different flavors.”

Thursday she shared her Pumpkin Truffle recipe on Morning Break. Find her recipe below:
