When creating this recipe, I was inspired by the delicious Crunchy Cherry Chocolate Confections from Low-carb So Simple. I wanted to make dairy-free "fat bombs", so I added some coconut oil.
Why fat bombs? If you follow a ketogenic diet plan, you probably know that the main source of energy should come from fat. Fat bombs are easy snacks high in healthy fats and very low in carbs and protein. They are great for those who find it difficult to include more healthy fats in their diet or follow what is known as fat fast.
The first time I made these keto chocolate truffles, I used 100 g/ 3.5 oz of dark chocolate and they melted outside the fridge. This was down to excessive coconut oil which melts at room temperature. After experimenting with different amounts, I found the mixture that worked well. These candies are not too hard and yet remain solid at room temperature.
