Just 2 Ingredients in Keto Chocolate Truffles
You;ll need only 2 ingredients for the base recipe of these truffles, but you can mix in optional add-ins for extra texture and flavor.
- Chocolate – make sure to chop the chocolate into very small pieces to melt easier when mixed with the hot cream. You can also use chopped sugar-free chocolate chips.
- Heavy Cream – choose full-fat heavy cream that has at least 30% fat. Half and a half or milk won’t set properly.
How To Make Keto Truffles
To make this sugar-free truffle traditional recipe, you have to make a chocolate ganache by combining melted chocolate and cream.
- Finely chop your chocolate bar so that it melts easier.
- In a small saucepan, heat the cream on the stove until it strats to boil.
- Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate. Stir until the mixture is smooth and thick.
- Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
- Scoop out chocolate balls using a small cookie scooper and place them on a plate lined with parchment paper.
- Roll the balls into cocoa powder, coconut flakes, crushed nuts, or sprinkles. Refrigerate until ready to enjoy!
Tips for Success
- Allow the chocolate mixture enough time to chill properly before shaping them into truffles. It’s best to chill for at least 5 hours, but it’s best to refrigerate overnight.
- Make sure to use high-quality chocolate such as Lindt, Ghirardelli, or Valhrona.
- Use gloves when rolling as the chocolate will stick less and keeps your hands clean.
- If your chocolate won’t melt, it means that the cream wasn’t hot enough or the chocolate pieces are too large. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water and stir until completely melted.
Truffles Flavor Variations
- Mint – add 1/4 tsp of pure peppermint extract.
- Raspberry – add 1/4 tsp of raspberry extract.
- Peanut Butter – Mix in 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter or hazelnut butter in the chocolate mixture.
- Coconut – Roll the truffles into shredded coconut.
- Orange – Mix orange zest into the melted chocolate before chilling.
How to Store
- Fridge – store sugar-free truffles in a single layer in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
- Freezer – place leftover truffles in a freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to 2 months.
Wrap keto truffles and give them as gifts on special occasions such as Christmas, Valentine’s day, or birthdays. Everyone will appreciate your efforts.
