Easy, Decadent Keto Truffles
Truffles always seem like a very fancy dessert. The perfect, shiny chocolate exterior that drapes a flavorful center is something that almost no one can resist. Even the word truffle sounds rich and decadent. With this keto truffle recipe, you can make this impressive treat right from your own kitchen and the secret is, it’s not that hard! Oh, and the other secret is that these truffles are completely low carb. Sounds pretty great, right? Let’s take a closer look at what really goes into these truffles.
When you first make truffles, you start by making a filling. Almost anything can be made into a truffle filling but there are a few guidelines. First, you want a filling that is firm so that you are able to roll the truffle center. Once you have blended everything together for the truffle center, you will roll it into neat little balls, prepping them to be dipped in chocolate. If your filling is too soft, it won’t hold its shape and make for strange-looking truffles. If the filling is too firm, the truffle won’t have the luxurious, delicate texture that you are craving.
Our recipe for truffle filling is a blend of almond flour, erythritol, cocoa powder, butter, and vanilla. It is perfectly crafted to give you an amazing texture, being both soft yet firm enough to be rolled into a beautiful ball. Once you have the filling ready (which will only take a minute or two), you are ready for the chocolate!
Using extra dark chocolate is what keeps this recipe low carb. Dark chocolate has little to no added sugars and cocoa is naturally sugar-free. In addition, dark chocolate has a very rich taste that is incomparable. Adding a touch of coconut oil to the dark chocolate will give it a slightly sweet taste but it also serves an important purpose. The oil will make the chocolate silky smooth, making dipping the truffles much easier. It will also help the chocolate have a pretty shine once it hardens. So don’t skip the coconut oil! It is important to making perfect truffles.
After you have dipped the centers into the melted chocolate, the truffles will only take a few minutes before they are ready to eat. You can put them in the fridge to speed up the hardening process if you just can’t wait to eat them! Keep this recipe on hand for your next party, family get-together, or whenever you feel like making yourself a treat!
