- Sugar free dark chocolate - You can use sugar free chocolate or Lily's chocolate chips in these truffles.If you aren't sugar free or low carb, then you can use whatever chocolate you'd like.
- Cream cheese - I always use full fat cream cheese for the best taste and quality.
- Stevia - This is a wonderful sugar free alternative for those looking to omit sugar from their diets. I use this liquid stevia.
- Cacao powder - You can use cacao powder or even cocoa powder. I use the kind where the ingredients are only 100% cocoa powder and nothing else. I like this one.
- Walnuts - Packed with healthy fats, walnuts are one of my favorite nuts.
- Pure vanilla extract - I use pure vanilla extract which doesn’t contain any artificial flavors or additives, it’s just pure vanilla made from alcohol. I use this one.
- Coconut Flour - Coconut flour is light, naturally sugar free and low in carbs which makes it extremely versatile for low carb baking. I always use this coconut flour for my baking. I love baking with both almond and coconut flour for the perfect texture.
How To Make These Chocolate Truffles
Melt dark chocolate in the microwave for 60 seconds or on the stovetop. Combine melted chocolate with cream cheese, vanilla extract, and liquid stevia.
Then add cacao powder and coconut flour, stir until combined. Fold in chopped walnuts and mix to combine.
Refrigerate the batter for one hour to harden. Once the mixture has a stiff consistency, it is ready. Shape into ¾ to 1 inch balls, as desired.
Coat your chocolate truffles with coconut flour, ground walnuts, or cacao powder. Refrigerate for one more hour before serving.
I told you these babies were easy to make! Pretty enough to give as gifts as well.
