Truffles are a personal favorite of mine, growing up my family owned a restaurant and one of my jobs was to make truffles.

Bourbon, mint, orange, you name it. My husband and I also had lavender truffles as our wedding flavors. You could say I love truffles but I especially love these keto truffles. They are also some of the easiest fat bombs you can make!

With just 3 ingredients: dark chocolate, heavy cream (or coconut milk, or even unsweetened almond milk), and cocoa powder this is a great base recipe to jump off of to create your own flavors, although they’re great as is.

If you’d like to spice them up a bit I’d start by adding 1 teaspoon of a flavoring such as vanilla, maple, mint, almond, or orange extract. It's the perfect threat for Valentine's Day or Mother's Day!

Let us know in the comments how you end up flavoring your batch!

Hi! Thanks for this recipe 😊
Question, can the choc chips be replaced with cacao or cocoa powder instead?
Thanks in advance!

Reply

Hi Tash, you will need to use some fats that solidify when chilled so cacao powder in its own won't work. But you can replace the chocolate chips with a combination of cacao powder and coconut oil or cacao powder and cocoa butter.

Has anyone tried with coconut milk instead of dairy?

Reply

Hi Regan, I use it quite often - coconut milk is a great alternative!

Hi... if I were to use Bakers unsweetened baking chocolate how much would I need? And how much sweetener? Thanks.

Reply

It depends on the desired sweetness but I'd use about 200 g unsweetened chocolate + 1/4 to 1/2 cup powdered sweetener such as erythritol, Swerve or allulose.

Thanks for quick response Martina... so just to confirm it’s 200 gms of unsweetened chocolate in  a half cup of heavy cream?

Reply

That's correct - at least that is what I'd do to achieve about the same amount 😊
