I confess that I’m a chocolate addict. You’ve probably already noticed I’ve created a lot of recipes for chocolate on my blog. Yep, chocolate whispers in my ear beckoning me to devour it. I could eat bar after bar of it. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In fact, I could take a bath in it. You get the idea.
My addiction to chocolate has created an issue for me. The problem is that I can’t seem to find a commercially available low-carb chocolate bar that my stomach can handle. They all have ingredients that don’t work for my digestive system. Maybe I just eat too much at one time–it’s a bit tough for me to stop after that first bite.
In any case, most commercially available low-carb chocolates contain sweeteners that send me into hours of misery. The pain just wasn’t worth the few minutes of chocolate bliss.
This recipe for dark chocolate truffles solves my problem. These truffles are creamy, rich, chocolatey goodness. They melt in your mouth providing a surge of chocolate flavor that is sure to satisfy any chocolate craving.
Best of all, they are made with sweeteners that most people can tolerate. I use Pyure which contains a combination of stevia and erythritol. I added a bit of VitaFiber syrup to the mix because I found I couldn’t get the texture and flavor I wanted without it. The result of combining the sweeteners is a truffle that takes on all of the positive qualities of each sweetener without any of the negatives.
These recipe for dark chocolate truffles makes a low-carb truffle that can be enjoyed anytime. These truffles would also make a fantastic gift for the low-carb chocolate lover. Enjoy!
Dark Chocolate Truffles--Low-Carb Recipe
These rich Low-Carb Dark Chocolate Truffles melt in your mouth. These treats can satisfy the worst chocolate craving--even for people on low-carb, ketogenic, Atkins, diabetic, gluten-free, or Banting diets. Best of all, this recipe is super-easy!
Place chocolate in a small mixing bowl. Set aside
In a 1 1/2 quart saucepan, stir together heavy whipping cream, granulated stevia/erythritol blend, and VitaFiber syrup. Place over low heat.
Heat the liquid mixture, stirring frequently, until it just starts to simmer.
Slowly pour mixture into the bowl with the chocolate, while whisking. Whisk until smooth. Refrigerate, uncovered, until mixture is hard enough to scoop up and shape, about 2-3 hours.
When mixture is firm enough to shape, place cocoa powder in a small bowl. Using a spoon, scoop out enough of the mixture to make a 1 1/2 inch ball. Shape into a ball, then roll the truffle in the cocoa powder to coat. Repeat for additional truffles.
Store the truffles in the refrigerator in a covered container.
