How cute are these chocolate truffles? If you are like me you were always afraid to make chocolate truffles because I always thought they were difficult to make. 
Maybe it's just the name "truffles" sounds fancy and intimidating, I don't know but I am sure glad I gave it a shot and now I'm making this recipe every other week!

Ingredient Notes

Simply made with a few ingredients and we are only using the microwave to make these delicious low carb truffles.

  • Coco Polo Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Chips - sugar free chocolate chips are stevia-sweetened, pure dark chocolate, 70% cocoa without the 30% sugar to distract from the benefits or taste.
  • Coco Polo Sugar Free Milk Chocolate Chips - Stevia-sweetened, pure milk chocolate, 39% cocoa without the sugar to distract from the benefits of taste.
  • Heavy Whipping Cream - giving this mousse a lux rich, fatty and creamy flavour
  • Origin Vanilla Extract - enhances all the flavours in this recipe.
  • Butter - adding a little butter to soften the chocolate while making these truffles super rich.

Step By Step Instructions

How to make Keto Chocolate Truffles?

Step 1: Warm up the heavy whipping cream on the stove in a medium pot on medium low heat, just until it starts to bubble around the edges.  Then pour over the chocolate, vanilla and better.  Give a mix and set aside for 5 minutes.

Step 2: After 5 minutes, mix again.  If chocolate has not completely melted,  you can continue to melt over a double boiler or microwave in 30 second increments until it is melted.  Mix well until chocolate looks velvety and shiny.

Step 3: Once melted plae a plastic wrap over the bowl and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

Step 4: After 2 hours use a small cookie scoop to make 1 inch truffle balls, then roll them in your hands to make perfectly round.

Step 5: Place on a parchment lined baking sheet as you complete each one to prepare for rolling in the sprinkles.

Step 6: Roll each chocolate truffle in sprinkles or your choice of coverings.  We rolled ours in Good Dee's Midnight Moon and Rainbow Sprinkles and also used unsweetened cocoa powder and crushed nuts. 

Place on a plate and store in the fridge until ready to serve.  They might need more time in the fridge to set, depending on how hot they got while rolling.

Recipe Tips

Top Tip: if the chocolate gets too warm before rolling it may start to melt in your hands.  Place in the fridge again until cool enough to roll.
Tip: Careful not to overcook the melted chocolate as it can separate or burn.
Storage: store these low carb chocolate truffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.  I do not recommend freezing these truffles

Recipe Variations

Keto chocolate truffles can be rolled in a variety of coverings and you can also add other ingredients to change the flavour profile.  Here are just a few of our favourite ways to make them.

Orange: add a teaspoon of orange zest to the chocolate before melting for a chocolate orange truffle.  If you are living on the edge add a shot of orange liquer as well.
Coconut: roll the truffles in shredded coconut for a tropical tasting treat
Snowballs: simply roll in powdered erythritol for a snowball chocolate truffle
Nutty: crush some pistachios to roll the chocolate truffles in for an interesting looking and tasting treat.
