Low Carb Chocolate Truffles Recipe
Dietary Candy Recipe
Low Carb Chocolate Truffles! A low carb version of the all time favorite chocolate truffle. Splenda, whipping cream keep the carbs down and macadamia nuts give it them something special.
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
4 tablespoons Splenda
4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
4 tablespoons whipping cream room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ounce crushed macadamia nuts (optional)
Melt the chocolate either in the microwave or in a bowl over a pot of simmering water. Stir in the Splenda and cool to room temperature. Combine the chocolate and butter until smooth. Stir in cream and vanilla, then the nuts if using.
Spread evenly into a small, parchment lined loaf pan, 4 by 7 inches works well. Chill until firm. Cut into pieces and store in the freezer.
- The success of this recipe depends upon the melted chocolate and butter being at the same temperature. If not, the chocolate and butter will separate.
- This recipe yields as many Low Carb Chocolate Truffle pieces as you cut it into!
- The better quality chocolate has a smoother texture than the more commonly available Baker's chocolate due to its high cocoa butter content. Callebaut, Valrhona and Scharffen Berger are all good choices.
