These are the best keto truffles I’ve ever made – I’m so excited for you to try these for the holidays (or anytime), for yourself or for a gift! While these healthy truffles are sure to impress, this sugar-free healthy truffle recipe is actually quite simple and made with just 4 basic ingredients.

And at less than 1 net carb per truffle? You can definitely eat more than one. 🙂

As someone who’s been developing recipes with 10 ingredients or less for several years now… fewer ingredients is better if they’re high-quality.That’s why I’m so happy to include my favorite ChocZero dark chocolate chips in these truffles — they have the perfect balance of sweetness and rich chocolate flavor, with no sugar alcohols, soy, or gluten. I love them so much that you’ll find them in dozens of other recipes too, like keto fudge, keto chocolate cookies ,chocolate mousse, and even sugar free hot chocolate.

You might notice that these truffles are similar to my Nutella truffles and chocolate fat bombs, in that we’re creating a chocolatey base that will firm up in the fridge. This one makes the process even easier by cutting down on ingredients — and adding the richest sugar-free dark chocolate!

This time, we’re going back to the basics with a super easy sugar-free truffle recipe. No frills about it, but they are just simple perfection. These keto chocolate truffles are incredibly rich and chocolaty, you would never guess that they don’t have sugar. And, you can customize them to your heart’s content with your favorite toppings – I’m offering lots of ideas for that below!

How To Make Keto Truffles

This no bake keto chocolate truffles recipe is easier than you may think! Here’s how to make them:

  • Place chocolate into a bowl. We do this first, because they need to be ready to go after the next step!

  • Heat cream and butter. Combine cream and butter in a saucepan, and bring to barely a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

  • Make ganache. While the cream is still hot, pour it over the chocolate. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes to soften, then stir together until smooth and shiny.

  • Chill. Pour the ganache into a rectangular glass container (this one is a great size!) and refrigerate until firm, no longer shiny, and not sticky when touched lightly.

TIP: If the ganache gets too firm, simply let it sit out at room temperature to soften.

TIP: Rinse your hands with cold water to cool them off before rolling truffles. This helps prevent them from melting.

  • Coat truffles. Roll truffles in coatings right away – don’t chill them first, as the filling sticks better while they are softened from rolling.

TIP: Use a variety of coatings and your truffles will look great on a platter. I have some ideas below!

Keto Truffle Coating Ideas

We’re coating these healthy chocolate truffles with a number of coatings, which can add sweetness, texture, and crunch. You can roll them in:

For the low carb truffles shown here, I used an assortment of these coatings, including cocoa powder, chopped hazelnuts, powdered monk fruit, melted chocolate, and shredded coconut.

How To Serve Truffles

Truffles are best served at room temperature. They will reach that naturally as you roll them, so you can simply serve them right away!

If they get too soft from your hands, though, you can chill them a bit before serving. On the other hand, if you’ve had them in the fridge for a while, let them come to room temp for 10 minutes or so before enjoying, for the best texture.

Keto Chocolate Truffles FAQs

What is chocolate truffle filling?

The filling of a chocolate truffle is a homemade chocolate ganache made from heavy cream, butter, chocolate, and vanilla. We’re using ChocZero Keto Chocolate Chips to make this version sugar-free!

What do truffles taste like?

Chocolate truffles taste a bit like little balls of chocolate fudge.

Are truffles keto?

Most truffles would not be keto, as they are made with sugar! However, this truffle recipe is very low carb and perfect for a keto diet. Each truffle has just 0.9 grams net carbs per piece.

Are they vegetarian? Vegan? Gluten-free?

Keto truffles are naturally gluten-free and vegetarian, but not vegan, due to the dairy content.

Can I make them dairy-free?

Possibly. I’m confident that you can replace the heavy cream with full-fat coconut milk.

In place of butter, you might be able to use a dairy-free butter alternative. I love this butter flavored coconut oil, but have not tested it with this sugar-free truffles recipe.

Can you use milk or white chocolate?

Yes! You can make these with ChocZero white chocolateand milk chocolateas well.

Storage Instructions

Can you make them ahead?

Yes, you can definitely make these truffles ahead, as they need time to chill. Great for get-togethers or gifting!

How to store chocolate keto truffles:

Store the truffles in the refrigerator for 7-10 days and let them sit out at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.

Can you freeze them?

Yes, you can freeze keto chocolate truffles, just like regular ones. Freeze in a single layer on a sheet pan until frozen solid, then carefully transfer to a freezer container. Place a sheet of parchment paper in between layers to prevent sticking.

Tap on the times in the instructions below to start a kitchen timer while you cook.

  1. Place the ChocZero chocolate chips into a small bowl. Set aside.

  2. In a small 1-quart saucepan on the stove, combine the heavy cream and butter. Let the butter melt, then continue to heat until the cream just barely starts to simmer.

  3. Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla.

  4. Immediately, while the cream is still hot, pour it over the chocolate. Set aside for 3-5 minutes to allow the chocolate to melt, then stir together until smooth. (This is chocolate ganache.)

  5. Pour the ganache into a small rectangular glass meal prep dish. Refrigerate for about 2 hours, until the ganache is thick and semi-firm (it shouldn’t be shiny anymore and your fingers should not stick), but not hard. (If it gets too firm, you can let it sit at room temperature to soften.)

  6. Line a 10x15 jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate this at the same time.

  7. Wash your hands with cold water to cool them off. Use an extra small cookie scoop (this one is the ideal size) to scoop the chocolate mixture, shape the balls as needed, and place onto the 10x15 pan. Work quickly and avoid touching the truffles too much, or they’ll melt.

  8. Roll the keto truffles in cocoa powder, or your other coatings of choice (see ideas above).

  9. Store truffles in the refrigerator, but let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.
