Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream, room temperature
  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese, softened
  • 6 tbsp Swerve, Confectioner’s
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 4 ounces sugar-free dark chocolate, chopped
  • ½ ounce cocoa butter or 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Crushed slices almonds for garnish
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, stir the whipping cream with the espresso powder until the powder is mostly dissolved. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the mascarpone with the sweetener and vanilla until smooth. Beat in the cream/coffee mixture.
  3. Add ¾ cup of the almond flour and work in until the mixture resembles cookie dough in consistency. Add more almond flour if needed. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and freeze 1 hour.
  5. In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, melt the chocolate with the cocoa butter or coconut oil, stirring until smooth. Working with one truffles at a time, dip in the chocolate and toss to coat. Lift out with a fork and tap the fork gently on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.
  6. Place back on lined baking sheet and sprinkle immediately with a little bit of crushed almonds. Repeat with remaining truffles.
