How To Make Homemade Truffles
We've made low carb truffles before, but they pale in comparison to these. This recipe was the result of Matt's desire to make something over the top for Valentines Day this year because we have a tradition to cook a meal together and then have a dessert we can enjoy and feel good about afterwards. After I taste tested these truffles I fell in love with Matthew all over again and can't wait to make these year after year!

Easy Chocolate Truffles
- Finely chop up the entire 4oz bar of bakers chocolate and set aside.
- Heat a medium, bottom heavy skillet to medium heat and add the heavy whipping cream. Bring to a light boil and then remove from heat. Allow to cool for 1 minute.
- Add in the powdered erythritol, stevia and chopped up chocolate. Give it a light stir and then using an immersion blender, mix together the mixture until fully combined, uniform and you get a thick chocolate consistency.
- Pour combined mixture into a loaf pan and place in fridge for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
- Pour some cocoa powder out on to a plate for rolling the truffles.
- Remove the mixture from the fridge and using a 1 inch cookie scooper, scoop out 12 truffles. After you scoop each truffle out drop into the cocoa powder and roll to cover the entire surface and then place onto a separate plate. Repeat until all truffles are complete.
- Store in the fridge to re-harden prior to serving. Will keep for up to 5 days if stored in a sealed container. Enjoy!
