A basic chocolate truffle recipe was one of the first posts on this blog – way back in 2014! Since then I've given you an adult-only brandy chocolate truffle recipe – but now I'm taking low carb truffles to a new level!

Low Carb Chocolate Brandy Truffles

The key to them is the low carb “Nutella” – my favorite brand is NutiLight which you can buy from Amazon or Netrition. They make several varieties but I prefer the Sugar Free Dark Chocolate version! Note: It's cheaper on Netrition! But check out my review of 5 different alternatives!

Low Carb Chocolate Hazelnut Spread Review

Once you've combined this with Lily's Dark Chocolate Baking Chips and Confectioner's Swerve (both also available from Amazon and Netrition!), then rolled the truffles in hazelnut meal, the results are heavenly! 

Forming the truffles can get pretty messy – but it's worth it! Just don't try and be a perfectionist – there's no need to create perfect spheres! If the mixture gets too soft then you may need to put it back in the fridge for 10 minutes.

 

How to Make Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles

Add the hazelnut spread, chocolate chips, coconut oil and sweetener to a saucepan. Cook over a low heat until fully melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl. Let cool for 30 minutes, then place in the fridge until hardened – about one hour.

Use a melon baller or spoon to shape the mixture into small balls. Roll the balls in the hazelnut meal.
