Chocolate Orange Truffles (Keto, Low-Carb, Sugar-Free)

Print

I thought I’d give you something super easy, super fast, super scrumptious, and super pretty, which given the limitations that the finickiness of chocolate so generously provides us, was a very tall order. These Chocolate Orange Truffles are the result.

I suggest keeping a batch of these Chocolate Orange Truffles in your ‘fridge at all times so whenever you get that chocolate urge, or need a fat bomb to finish off your meal, they’ll be ready when you are!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These delectable truffles make the perfect anytime snack! At only 15 calories per truffle, you can indulge in a few and remain guilt-free because honestly, who has just ONE truffle at a time? Each piece has just 1g fat, 1g carbs and zero sugar!

Chocolate Orange Truffles (Keto, Low-Carb, Sugar-Free)

  • Prep Time:5 minutes
  • Cook Time:5 minutes
  • Servings: 80

Ingredients

8 ounces / 1 cup thick coconut milk (canned)
3 tablespoons powdered gelatin
1/2 cup water
2 ounces cocoa powder
2 ounces xylitol or erythritol
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons orange extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3 ounces 100% unsweetened chocolate (not cocoa powder), chopped

Instructions

  1. Shake the thick coconut milk well before opening the can. If the contents don’t sound liquid as you shake, stand the unopened can in hot water for 10 minutes and try again.
  2. Pour the 8 fl oz. / 1 cup of thick coconut milk into a large jug or bowl with a pouring spout.
  3. Sprinkle the gelatin evenly over the surface of the coconut milk and stir. It will become very thick and lumpy. Don’t panic!
  4. In a small pan put the water, cocoa powder, and xylitol or erythritol, and whisk well until the cocoa powder is mixed in.
  5. Bring to the boil whisking continuously. Once boiling, turn off the heat.
  6. Pour (or scrape!) the coconut milk and gelatin mixture into the hot chocolate mixture and stir until it is completely smooth.
  7. Stir in the vanilla and orange extracts and the sea salt.
  8. Add the chopped chocolate and stir until it is completely melted.
  9. Pour the mixture back into the jug or pouring bowl.
  10. Carefully pour into your silicone molds. If you don’t have silicone molds see notes below.
  11. Carry carefully to the ‘fridge or freezer.
  12. They will set in 10 minutes in the freezer or an hour in the ‘fridge.
  13. Remove from the ‘fridge or freezer. Hold the molds upside down and push the truffles out. They are pretty hardy.
  14. Store in an airtight container in the ‘fridge. If any make it to the ‘fridge.

    Can you recommend a silicone mold to use for this recipe? I see the servings is 80 so not sure what size molds Inwould need in order to get the 80 servings?? Should the cavities of the mold be 20X20 or 30×30?
