Okay, now for all of you who want to get your hands gooey...

This recipe for sugar free ganache is quite simple and can be adjusted to your own tastes by altering the amount and types of artificial sweeteners that you use.
 

Sugar Free Chocolate Truffles Recipe

  • 8 ounces unsweetened chocolate pieces
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups *erythritol (recommended sugar alcohol)
  • Artificial sweetener equivalent to one cup of sugar

  1. Combine the cream, vanilla, salt, and sweetener (not the erythritol), heating on low until bubbles form. Remove from heat. 

  2. Add the chocolate pieces and allow them to melt, stirring occasionally. Stir in the erythritol.

  3. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature or chill until firm enough to form balls or squares.

  4. Roll pieces in nuts, coconut, or cocoa powder and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Alternatively: This recipe can also be used as the base for a sauce by simply adding cream until it is the consistency you want. 


A Note About Erythritol: Erythritol is the sugar alcohol that has the least affect on your blood sugar levels. This is the one most recommended for use in making low carb chocolate. 


Erythritol is easiest to use in its powdered form. If you can't get it that way, you can run the granulated form through the blender to grind it into a powder. 


Another 'Sweet' Alternative: Stevia is becoming more and more recognized as a healthy alternative to sugar and other sweeteners. If you want to give Stevia a try, here are a couple of choices.
