Earl Grey Chocolate Truffles Recipe: Low Carb Snack

Thanks to Sweet’N Low for sponsoring this post and providing the sweetener for the recipe as part of their 12 Days of Christmas campaign. All opinions are mine.

The simple Earl Grey chocolate truffles are creamy and full of deliciousness. Plus, they’re free of carbs and sugar, making them the perfect Christmas treat for those living a keto lifestyle. Double the recipe so you have enough for gifts – they are so delicious! This year, I teamed up with SweetN Low® and eleven other bloggers to celebrate the holidays with recipes for the 12 Days of Christmas issue. I picked these truffles on the 10th day of the song because I’m pretty sure that’s why those 10 gentlemen were a hare!

For this recipe you will need: Sweet’N Low®, packets of Earl Grey tea, heavy cream, carb-free milk chocolate, favorite toppings (cocoa powder, unsweetened coconut, pecans, etc.).

Earl Grey Backstage Low Carb Chocolate Truffle

I’ve always loved chocolate, but the first time I bit into a creamy chocolate truffle, I was sold. When I discovered that these chocolates were so easy to make, I was overjoyed – that night we ate homemade truffle chocolates.

All was bright and happy in the land of chocolate until the dark day when my thyroid was removed and I ::: ominous music: Hypothyroidism.

As far as I was concerned, the future was bleak. No desserts, no bread, no snacks, and worst of all, no chocolate.

Of course, we all know my fears were silly! Being low-carb is much easier than most meal plans, but at the time it was really hard for me. A little over a year later, I married my husband, who turned out to be a type 1 diabetic. This makes it all the more important to watch the carbohydrates and sugar in our diet!

Over the years, I’ve learned to make many of my favorite recipes with sugar-free sweeteners like Sweet’N Low®. These Earl Grey truffles are a great example of how easy it is to turn a high-carb recipe into a keto-friendly one – something sweet and tasty, but with little sugar.

Chocolate and Earl Grey is a great combination with a hint of citrus.

Low-carb chocolate truffles Cooking notes

Truffles are easy to make, but here are some tips to get you started.

  • Make sure there is no water in the mixture while you melt the chocolate. It will take over and you will have to start over.
  • I used carb-free chocolate for these Earl Grey truffles. The amount of carbohydrates depends on the carbohydrates in the chocolate used.
  • You can adjust the type of tea to suit your taste.
  • Tea bags make it easy, but you can also use loose leaf tea and filter it well.
  • Try adding a little dried orange zest and a bag of Sweet’N Low® cocoa to roll the truffles. Enhances the taste of bergamot/orange in tea.
