How to make keto white chocolate truffles
The steps to make these decadent candies are quite simple. Just keep in mind that the filling needs to set in the refrigerator for a while. So be sure to start the recipe a few hours before you want to eat them.
First, we’ll make the white chocolate filling:
- In a small saucepan over low heat, mix together the coconut butter, mascarpone cheese, and powdered sweetener.
- Once the mixture is well combined, remove from heat and stir in the whey powder and vanilla extract.
- Using an electric mixer, beat the filling until well combined.
- Scoop the mixture and form into balls, using your hands if necessary, then place them on a non-stick surface. You should end up with 28 round truffle fillings.
- Place the fillings in the refrigerator for several hours to chill.
Once the fillings have set, we’ll prep the chocolate coating and finish making the truffles:
- Melt the baking chocolate, cocoa butter, and powdered sweetener over low heat or with a double boiler until the ingredients are completely melted.
- Remove the chocolate mixture from heat and stir in the stevia.
- Take the truffle fillings out of the refrigerator. One by one, dip a chilled ball of filling into the melted chocolate until completely coated, then set it on a non-stick surface to harden.
- Repeat until all truffles have been dipped into the chocolate coating. You can use any leftover chocolate to drizzle over the truffles if desired.
Now you have perfect keto chocolate truffles to share with someone you love… or enjoy all to yourself!
Make sure to store your truffles in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy.
Choosing the flavor for low carb truffles
However, if you want something a little different for these truffles, you can easily change up the flavor. Try swapping the vanilla extract with a different flavor, like almond or even peppermint.
You could also add additional ingredients. I’m thinking of including some unsweetened dried coconut or cocoa powder!
