One of the chocolate treats I miss the most are those dark chocolate truffles you get for holidays like Christmas and Valentines day. So, I thought I’d try my hand at making some rich yet low carb chocolate trufles with absolutely no sugar added.
Making My Low Carb Chocolate Truffles Recipe
As long as you don’t mind getting a little messy with delicious chocolatey goodness then these low carb chocolate truffles are pretty simple to make.
The secret to the perfect truffle is all in the ganache. A decadent ganache recipe really makes all the difference. So, of course, that will be where the majority of the effort will be going towards.
Once you have the ganache ready to go, it’s just time to bathe them in a bowl of sweetened cocoa powder, yum!
Make it at home
- Cocoa Powder Alternative – Hershey’s Cocoa
- Baking Chocolate Alternative – Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate
- 8 ounces unsweetened chocolate (finely chopped)
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- ½ cup sweetener
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons coca powder
- 2 tablespoons sweetener
- In a saucepan bring the heavy whipping cream to a simmer, making sure that it doesn't start bubbling too much.
- Remove saucepan from heat, add sweetener and chocolate. Mix until smooth and then transfer to bowl to cool.
- Allow the mixture to cool in a mixing bowl, then referigerate for 1-2 hours (allows the mixture to thicken).
- Once cool, refrigerate until the chocolate mixture is firm enough to shape into balls, 1 to 2 hours. Using a spoon, scoop out teaspoon size chunks. Then roll the chunks in your hands to form balls (it will melt so try to do it quickly). Roll bolls in coating mixture. Refergerate until ready to serve.
