Low Carb Chocolate Truffles
About 1 NET CARB Per truffle!
The holidays are fast approaching and if you are like me, you may be nervous about being around all that food! Last year during the holidays I was freaking out. Worried that I was going to be overwhelmed and too tempted to say no to all those yummy treats hanging around. I set out (like I always do) to create low carb versions that I could enjoy.
Chocolate Truffles That Are Sugar Free
I also wanted to simplify my own cooking so as to not make two different versions of each recipe I started creating ones that the whole family would love. I totally have my husband fooled on these low carb chocolate truffles. He has no idea that they are sugar free.

Best Chocolate For Low Carb Truffles
When eating low carb you don’t have to give up chocolate. Does it just become a matter of what kind can I have? When choosing chocolate opt for a high percent cacao. The higher the percentage, the less processing and added sugar. Another option is to choose a sugar free, naturally sweetened chocolate like Lily’s brand.
What Sweetener Is Best For Low Carb Truffles
That is our number one go-to. Lily’s is sweetened with Stevia and has (in my opinion) no bitter aftertaste or funky burning sensation. You can find Lily’s online easily at shops like Netrition or even Amazon. For a quick tip on how to melt chocolate visit my post here melting chocolate.

How To Store Truffles
I like to store these chocolate truffles in the refrigerator. It will keep the chocolate nice and hard and then allow them to last longer than sitting on the counter. You will find these truffles store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Make sure to store them in an airtight container, that way they don’t dry out.
Can You Freeze Low Carb Chocolate Truffles
Yes, you can freeze these low carb chocolate truffles. Feel free to allow them to harden up, and then place in a freezer bag or airtight container. Then toss in the freezer and store for up to three months. Pull a handful out when you get a craving or serve them all up to guests.
Variations For Sugar Free Truffles
Skip the sprinkles and add nuts on top, for a crunch factor. Drizzle white chocolate over the top of the milk chocolate, and so on. You can get creative on how you dress up these truffles. You can also play around with the cookie base, for a different flavor.
