Give your guests a sweet send-off. Nestle homemade truffles decorated with sprinkles in little wooden boxes. Ours are lined with glassine -- trimmed with scallop scissors -- then wrapped in narrow ribbon and sealed with pumpkin stickers.
Forming truffles is easiest with a 1-inch ice cream scoop; 2 teaspoons will also work.

These were easy and fun. Some things I discovered along the way: 1) Use a small ice cream scoop to make creating the balls easier. 2) Sprinkles with shapes like pumpkins or bats don't coat as well as just plain sprinkles. 3) Place an inch of sprinkles in a high-sided small cup (like a coffee cup or juice glass), drop a truffle in, shake the cup to coat the truffle, and then roll the truffle around in the cup to press the sprinkles into the surface. Next time I will add a little liqueur.
