Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup keto friendly sweetener
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum

Flavorings:

  • Mint: Add 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • Raspberry: Add 1/2 cup freeze dried raspberries

Toppings:

  • Cocoa
  • Coconut
  • Ground nuts
  • Melted Chocolate

Instructions

Truffles:

  1. In food processor mix all ingredients and mix on high speed until mixture looks like really nice topsoil.
  2. Using a cookie scoop or your hands form mixture into balls and set aside on parchment paper.

Toppings:

  1. Prepare your topping: Nuts, cocoa powder, or coconut (use unsweetened macaroon coconut) can be put on the plate (start with about 1/4 cup and add more if needed) then roll each truffle until coated and set aside.
  2. Chocolate: To coat with chocolate simply melt about 7 ounces of 85% or higher chocolate and dip each truffle. You can also use unsweetened bakers chocolate and add keto friendly sweetener (if using keto sweetener I recommend powdering it first).
  3. Place dipped/rolled truffles into the refrigerator and chill until firm.
