The best keto truffles for the festive season! These EASY Low Carb Gingerbread Ganache Truffles are perfectly smooth on the inside, spiced delicately with cinnamon and ginger, and encased in a crisp sugar-free chocolate shell.

I couldn’t decide whether they’re best enjoyed with a hot chocolate, Prosecco or cup of tea… so I tested all 3 (oh the hardship I undergo for you guys LOL) and decided they’re an all round winner!

If you like to make edible Christmas gifts, these are also perfect to give as a festive gift. Wrap in a cute little bag or mason jar and tie with brown twine and some eucalyptus or festive twigs for a thoughtful stylish homemade keto gift.

Ingredients (makes 20 truffles)

Truffles:
Chocolate shell:

Instructions

  1. Add the heavy cream (or coconut cream), brown sugar substitute (such as golden Erythritol), vanilla, ground ginger and cinnamon to a pan.
  2. Heat until hot but not boiling over. Add the first part of the chocolate (use sugar-free dark chocolate chips or at least 85% dark chocolate) and allow to melt for about 5 minutes. Do not mix or it may split.

  3. Once the time is up stir with a spatula to combine. Do not over stir or you risk splitting the chocolate. Scrape into a container, cover in cling film and set in the fridge for 2 hours.

  4. Once set, use small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon to scoop balls (about 25 g/ 0.9 oz each). Roll into balls. If not coating in the chocolate shell then simply dust or roll in cinnamon & ginger mix or use raw cacao. Keto Chocolate Ganache Gingerbread Truffles
  5. Otherwise, heat 3/4 of the chocolate with the coconut oil over a pan of boiling water until melted. Stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and add the remaining chocolate. Stir until it melts. (Option to pop back on the heat to reach 31 °C/ 88 °F if it’s not all melted.)
  6. When the filling is chilled, skewer each keto truffle with a tooth pick and dunk or spoon over the chocolate. If the chocolate is too thin just let it stand at room temperature for a few minutes to cool and thicken slightly.

  7. Place into half a cut apple or orange to set over a baking tray lined with parchment. This prevents you getting a rim on the truffle like you would if you put it on a baking tray.
  8. Place in the fridge to set or leave at room temperature until the chocolate shell is hard. Remove the toothpick and enjoy. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or freeze for up to 3 months.
