How to Make Cream Cheese Chocolate Truffles
Place your dark chocolate into a bowl and melt your dark chocolate in the microwave for 60 seconds. Stir until smooth.
Combine the melted chocolate in another bowl with the cream cheese, vanilla, and liquid stevia.
Add in the cocoa powder and coconut flour. Stir until combined.
Fold in the chopped walnuts and mix them together.
Place the batter into the fridge for 1 hour to harden.
Once the mixture is stiff, it’s ready. Scoop and roll the batter into 3/4 inch to 1 inch sized balls, as desired.
Finally, coat the chocolate truffles with coconut flour, ground walnuts, and cocoa powder.
Place into the fridge for another hour before serving.
I like to use 50% dark chocolate for my truffles but you can easily swap it out for sugar free chocolate if you’re on a keto diet.
The actual amount of liquid stevia that you will use will vary depending on the bitterness of the chocolate (added to taste).
You will serve these chocolate keto truffles from the fridge, just like cheesecake. Don’t let them sit out too long or they’ll become soft.
You can modify this cream cheese truffle recipe by adding in one or two tablespoons of your favorite liqueur or Moscato wine for a boozy adult treat.
Coating the truffles with melted chocolate instead of powdered flour, cocoa powder or nuts helps to give a more elegant touch that’s perfect for parties.
How long are homemade truffles good for?
These truffles can last up to two weeks if kept stored in an airtight container within your fridge. I do not recommend keeping them out of the fridge for longer than 2 hours at a time, even less time if it is a hot day. For best tasting results, eat the truffles while they are freshest.
How do you firm up chocolate truffles?
While you need to use softened ingredients to mix up the batter well, you will need to not skimp on the chilling of the batter. Getting the batter nice and cold is what helps it to firm back up. The texture of the truffle should be soft but still hold shape, similar to a baked cheesecake how you can hold a piece and easily squish it, but still be able to pick it up without it falling apart in your fingers.
Can I freeze cream cheese truffles?
Yes, you can freeze these truffles. After they have been fully assembled simply place them on a parchment lined baking sheet and place into the freezer for about 1-2 hours until solid. Then transfer to an airtight container and keep them there for up to 4 months. When ready to serve just place them on a plate and they should soften within an hour on the counter, or overnight in the fridge.
