Appetizing and Delicious Keto Chocolate Truffles.

An appetizing and delicious keto chocolate truffle is like the soul of chocolate. One or two should be so rich and satisfying that you can’t eat anymore if you try. Perhaps this is because they consist mainly of fat. They may be the original fat bomb and a sophisticated one at that.

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces sugar-free, dark chocolate, chopped fine or in small pieces.

 

  • 2.5 ounces (by weight) heavy cream, you can substitute the same amount of full-fat coconut milk with great results, for a dairy-free version.

 

  • 5-ounce unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, at or near room temperature. a higher fat European style butter such as Plugra or Kerrygold will make an even better product but regular butter will work just fine. If you are making a dairy-free version you can omit the butter or replace it with coconut oil.

 

  • Cocoa powder for coating the truffles, you can also use things like use ground nuts, seeds, and grated coconut to coat the truffles. Feel free to be creative.

Instructions

Heat the cream over medium heat in a small saucepan or in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl until it is very hot. It doesn’t have to come to the boil, but a good simmer will ensure all the chocolate melts.

When the cream is hot add all the chocolate at once.

Allow the chocolate to sit in the cream until it begins to melt when it looks as if most of the chocolate has softened stir carefully with a whisk. Be careful not to stir too vigorously. If you over mix you may cause the chocolate to seize becoming grainy and rough.

When all the chocolate is melted and the mixture looks smooth and glossy you have ganache. That is all there is to it.

For the final touch, while the ganache is still warm drop in all of the butter and stirs gently until it is combined.

If the butter is too warm when you add it will melt completely and may look oily, but if it is still cool it should incorporate beautifully into the ganache making it look even glossier.

Refrigerate your ganache until set. Depending on the amount you make this may take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. For the amount given here, it should take from 30 minutes to an hour.

You are looking for a ganache that is firm enough to be scooped and rolled into balls. If it is too hard you won’t be able to scoop it, but if it is too soft it won’t roll into balls.

Now you can make your truffles, by using a small ice cream scoop, or a melon baller also works well for scooping and shaping balls but you can use a spoon too.

Scoop out all your truffles, then shape lightly in your hands like you are making a meatball or shaping clay.

Try to move quickly and touch the chocolate lightly because it will begin to melt in your hands.
 
As you shape them replace them on the tray or place them directly into the cocoa powder, or another coating.
