Sweet Cravings

I find that I can quickly satisfy as sweet craving when I have a small treat on hand like my Keto Chocolate Truffles. These are not hard to make and require only a few ingredients.

Even kids can help make this low card dessert!

Roll your truffle

My favorite way to finish off this little treat is to roll each ball in unsweetened coconut. However, these Keto Truffles can be rolled in crushed nuts or in unsweetened cocoa powder for variety.

And BTW…any nuts will do.

Any way you chose to finish off your treats they all are wonderful and freeze well for a little treat to be on hand should you be called to have a sweet but want to stay in ketosis.

My secret to lasting weight loss

Maintaining my weight loss, and quite frankly staying healthy, has always been the main driver for this website. Making Keto Truffles are really my trick. Sorry, it’s that simple for me. Meal prep and I almost always cook at home…that’s the trick.

I wrote a few articles about this and will write more. Everyone needs to know that cooking at home is one of my major keys to success. Every meal does not have to be epic. However, when I am prepared I have a much better chance at success.

The chocolate

Lily’s brand Stevia sweetened chocolate chips is what I use almost exclusively. There are many other brand on the market like Lakanto or Choc Zero. Whatever you can find and whatever you like best will work in this recipe for Keto Truffles.

I like to buy Lily’s in bulk on amazon and have them delivered right to my door. It’s nice to keep a stash and they come with a discount when I buy this way.

Ingredients

Toppings

  • 3 tbsp coconut finely shredded

Other optional toppings

  • pecans almonds, walnuts or macadamia nuts, finely chopped
  • cocoa powder unsweetened
  • bacon finely chopped

Instructions

  • In a microwave safe bowl add together butter, cream and low carb chocolate chips. Stir together the cream, chocolate chips and butter to coat before you place in the microwave. Microwave for 1 minute and then let the bowl sit in the microwave for 2 minutes before opening the door.
  • Using a whisk stir together the melted chocolate chips with the warm cream and melted butter. Depending on the power of your microwave you may have to put your bowl back into the microwave for more time. If this is the case, do shorter spurts of time of 10-15 seconds in the microwave until all chocolate is melted.
  • Again using the whisk add in the powdered low carb sweetener and the vanilla extract. Stir mixture to fully combine. Place in the fridge for 1-3 hours to solidify in the bowl.
  • Once chocolate truffle mixture is solid in the bowl remove from the fridge. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Fill a small bowl with the shredded coconut and set aside.
  • Using a small scooper (or a small spoon) scoop small balls of chocolate truffle mixture and place on lined parchment paper. You should get about 22 chocolate truffles.
  • Dampen your hands with the tiniest amount of water. Take each scoop of chocolate and roll in the palms of your hands. Once your ball is formed and round roll in the shredded coconut. Place the rolled truffles back on the parchment paper until all truffles have been rolled and covered in coconut.
  • Place truffles back in the fridge for 15 minutes to firm up again.
  • Once truffles are solid you can store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

If you’re not a fan of coconut then feel free to roll your truffles in chopped nuts, unsweetened cocoa powder or even finely chopped bacon.
