Hot Chocolate Truffles

Ingredients
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup butter 
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped 
  • 1/2 cup Swerve, Confectioners
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract OR peppermint extract  
  • 3 to 4 tbsp cocoa powder 
  • Crushed sugar-free peppermint candies (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the cream to a simmer. Remove from heat and add the butter and chopped chocolate. Let sit 5 minutes to melt.
  2. Add the Swerve and extract and whisk until the mixture is smooth. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours to firm up. 
  3. Using your hands, roll the mixture into 1 inch balls (prepare to get those hands dirty...this is a messy business!). If your mixture is crumbly, simply warm it between your palms before rolling into a ball. 
  4. Roll the balls in cocoa powder or crushed peppermint candies. Eat as is or turn into hot chocolate! 
  5. To use for hot chocolate, simply heat some almond milk or whole milk. Add two truffles and stir until melted. 

Makes about 30 truffles. 2 truffles per serving.

    Hello!I just took a second look at the macros from this recipe (which I LOVE, by the way!). I'm confused - if total number of carbs for two truffles in 9, and the dietary fiber is 2, how is the total net carb number 2? I'm no mathematical genius, but it seems to me that the net carb number would be 7. Please advise - this is a potential chocolate emergency! : )Thank you and thanks for your wonderful products, Jen

    • Swerve

      Hi Jen! You don't count the carbs coming from Swerve, since they don't affect blood sugar. So 9g total carbs, - 2g fiber - 5g Swerve = 2g net carbs. Hope this helps!

  • Traci

    How long can I store the hot chocolate truffles? Do I need to store them in the fridge?

    • Swerve

      Hi Traci! They should be fine up to 1 week in the fridge. Hope this helps!

    Is the cocoa powder unsweetened?

    • Swerve

      Hi Kathy! Yes, the cocoa is unsweetened.

  • carolyn gladu

    In the recipe is it 1 1/2 cups of Swerve confectioner's or 1/2 cup? The number 1 is listed at the end of the unsweetened chocolate line. Also, could you please adjust the print action so that the Nutrition Facts are included when you print the recipe?

    • Swerve

      Hi Carolyn, it is just 1/2 cup of Swerve. Thanks for catching that!
