Equipment

  • Two 1” truffle molds, piping bag (plastic sandwich bags also work)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar free dark chocolate chips + 2 Tbsp for later
  • 1 serving Chocolate Keto Chow (or 1 scoop)
  • 1/2 cup freeze dried raspberries measured whole then crushed/powered
  • 3 oz heavy cream
  • 2 tsp raspberry extract

Instructions

  • Melt ½ cup sugar free dark chocolate chips in a microwaveable bowl, 20 seconds at a time until mostly melted, then stir until all chips have melted. Use a small spoon to coat truffle mold cavities.
  • While chocolate sets, add ½ cup sugar free dark chocolate chips, crushed/powdered freeze dried raspberries, and Keto Chow into a mixing bowl.
  • Add heavy cream and raspberry extract to a small saucepan and heat until simmering but not boiling. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and start mixing. I used my stand mixer on the stir setting for 2 minutes.
  • Fill chocolate coated truffle molds with the truffle filling. The truffle filling will need to stay relatively warm to stay pliable enough to not crack the chocolate shell. I used a double boiler method and placed my mixing bowl over a pot of hot water and this worked well.
  • Pop each truffle half out. Melt remaining 2 TBSP of chocolate, spoon into piping bag, cutting off a small portion at the end and pipe around the inner rim of half of truffles, placing another half on top to “glue” them together as you go. Make sure to place together before moving to the next truffle.

Notes

You can make 12 equal sized balls and place them on a fork, using a spoon to coat the balls with melted chocolate. They won’t be as pretty but I am sure they will taste delicious!
If you don’t want raspberry seeds, you can use a food processor and powder the raspberries or nix the freeze dried raspberries and go for a little more extract.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients into a sauce pan on medium heat. Continuously whisk for 15 minutes.
  • The mixture should begin to boil at 8-10 minutes and will start to thicken.
  • When it’s ready it should be thick and shiny and pull away from the pan.
  • Add to a bread pan that has been lined with parchment paper or your favorite silicone molds. Put in the freezer for at least an hour. Pull parchment out of the pan and cut into squares.
  • You can store chews in the freezer or fridge once set. These are soft enough to eat right from the freezer. 

Notes

It’s easiest to put the mixture into a Ziploc bag and pipe into the silicone molds, but be sure to let it cool for a while first. 
You can cover these in chocolate once set! 
If the chews are sticking to the parchment paper after 1 hour, they need more time in the freezer. They will easily pull from ungreased parchment paper when fully set.
