When you’re craving some serious chocolate, these Keto chocolate truffles have got you covered. Made with 100% dark chocolate and rich coconut oil and coconut cream. You won’t believe how decadent these sugar-free chocolates are. Make a big batch to give as gifts or share with your family. However you enjoy them, we bet you won’t be able to stop with just one. They’re just that good!

4 Fun Facts About Truffles

  1. They get their name from the fancy fungi found in high-end kitchens around the world because chocolate truffles dusted in cocoa powder look like truffles that have just been dug out of the ground.
  2. Nobody knows exactly who invented the chocolate truffle, but it is generally agreed that truffles were invented in France.
  3. Truffles are traditionally made from chocolate ganache, which is a mixture of cream (in our case, coconut cream) and chocolate that is soft at room temperature.
  4. National Chocolate Truffle Day is on the 2nd of May.

Top Truffle Making Tips

  • Always use the best chocolate you can find – Using 100% dark chocolate ensure that you don’t have to worry about added sugar but always look for high-quality chocolate for truffles. Because there are few other ingredients, the quality of the chocolate makes a big difference in taste.
  • Chop your chocolate – To ensure that your chocolate melts quickly and evenly, give it a rough chop before melting no matter what method you use.
  • Wait for the right temperature – Make sure you don’t try to scoop your truffles before they are ready. The mixture should be firm, but easy to mold, like modeling clay. If you want to cut down on chilling time, pour the mixture into a shallow dish, such as a brownie pan, before chilling.

A Box of Keto Chocolates

These chocolate truffles are perfect on their own, but they would also make a lovely centerpiece for a low-carb box of chocolates. Read on for some ideas on what to serve alongside them.
