Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

These are the best truffles I’ve ever made – I’m so excited for you to try these for the holidays (or anytime), for yourself or for a gift! While these healthy truffles are sure to impress, this sugar-free healthy truffle recipe is actually quite simple and made with just a few basic ingredients.

HOW TO MAKE KETO TRUFFLES

This no bake keto chocolate truffles recipe is easier than you may think! Here’s how to make them:

  • Place chocolate into a bowl. We do this first, because they need to be ready to go after the next step!
  • Heat cream and butter. Combine cream and butter in a saucepan, and bring to barely a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  • Make ganache. While the cream is still hot, pour it over the chocolate. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes to soften, then stir together until smooth and shiny.
  • Chill. Pour the ganache into a rectangular glass container, cover with clear wrap and refrigerate until firm (about 3 hours), no longer shiny, and not sticky when touched lightly.

TIP: If the ganache gets too firm, simply let it sit out at room temperature to soften.

  • Roll sugar-free truffles. Use an extra small cookie scoop to scoop chocolate and roll into balls. Place onto chilled jelly roll pan.

TIP: Rinse your hands with cold water to cool them off before rolling truffles. This helps prevent them from melting.

  • Coat truffles. Roll truffles in coatings right away – don’t chill them first, as the filling sticks better while they are softened from rolling.

TIP: Use a variety of coatings and your truffles will look great on a platter. I have some ideas below!

KETO TRUFFLE COATING IDEAS

We’re coating these healthy chocolate truffles with a number of coatings, which can add sweetness, texture, and crunch. You can roll them in:

  • Melted chocolate 
  • Powders – Try cocoa powder, powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener, matcha powder, or espresso powder
  • Finely chopped nuts – Try hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, or almonds.
  • Shredded coconut
  • Sugar-free sprinkles 
  • Keto chocolate chip cookie crumbs

For the low carb truffles shown here, I used an assortment of these coatings, including cocoa powder, chopped hazelnuts, mini chocolate chips, and shredded coconut.

HOW TO SERVE TRUFFLES

HOW TO SERVE TRUFFLES

Truffles are best served at room temperature. They will reach that naturally as you roll them, so you can simply serve them right away!

If they get too soft from your hands, though, you can chill them a bit before serving. On the other hand, if you’ve had them in the fridge for a while, let them come to room temp for 10 minutes or so before enjoying, for the best texture.

These are the best truffles I’ve ever made – I’m so excited for you to try these for the holidays (or anytime), for yourself or for a gift! While these healthy truffles are sure to impress, this sugar-free healthy truffle recipe is actually quite simple and made with just a few basic ingredients.

Ingredients

  • KETO TRUFFLES
  • 1/3 cup Heavy cream

  • 1 tbsp Butter

  • 10 oz Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Chips (1 bag)

  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

  • KETO TRUFFLE COATING OPTIONS:
  • Cocoa powder (preferably Dutch processed)

  • Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Chips

  • Hazelnuts (finely chopped)

  • Shredded Coconut

  • Besti Powdered Monk Fruit Allulose Blend

Directions

  • Place the sugar free chocolate chips into a small bowl. Set aside.
  • In a small 1-quart saucepan on the stove, combine the heavy cream and butter. Let the butter melt, then continue to heat until the cream just barely starts to simmer.
  • Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla.
  • Immediately, while the cream is still hot, pour it over the chocolate. Set aside for 3-5 minutes to allow the chocolate to melt, then stir together until smooth. (This is chocolate ganache.)
  • Pour the ganache into a small rectangular glass meal prep dish. Refrigerate for about 2 hours, until the ganache is thick and semi-firm (it shouldn’t be shiny anymore and your fingers should not stick), but not hard. (If it gets too firm, you can let it sit at room temperature to soften.)
  • Line a 10×15 jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate this at the same time.
  • Wash your hands with cold water to cool them off. Use an extra small cookie scoop (this one is the ideal size) to scoop the chocolate mixture, shape the balls as needed, and place onto the 10×15 pan. Work quickly and avoid touching the truffles too much, or they’ll melt.
  • Roll the keto truffles in cocoa powder, or your other coatings of choice (see ideas above).
  • Store truffles in the refrigerator, but let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.
