These Sugar Free Bourbon Chocolate Truffles need just 6 ingredients and gluten free, low carb, keto and so decadent and delicious!

Chocolate truffles are one of the easiest and quickest desserts you can make for the holidays. We love these chocolate truffles all year long, but especially for Christmas time! They are perfect to display with keto cookies on a cookie platter.  Making chocolate truffles sugar free isn’t hard at all. Using sugar free chocolate chips and heavy cream is really all you need to make these scrumptious, creamy chocolate balls. Adding a bit of bourbon and vanilla give these chocolate truffles a warmth when they melt in your mouth and a flavor that just lingers on your tongue. 

There are two methods to melting chocolate. You can choose to use the stove top or the microwave and I have both methods for these truffles listed within the recipe below. It’s really a personal preference. Using the microwave though can cause you to burn and dry out your chocolate if you go a minute too long and the stove top method is a bit more forgiving. On the stove top you can see once the chocolate is melted and there are no lumps after stirring. This is the method I prefer but when you need to melt quickly the microwave might be a better option for you.

You don’t need anything special to make these delicious, fudgey chocolate truffles and these items below are probably already in your kitchen. 

Glass Bowl set– A medium sized glass bowl that can sit over a medium sized sauce pan linked to heat and melt the chocolate over simmering water. 

Melon Scoop or Small Cookie Scoop– Either one will make it much easier to scoop an even amount of the mixture into a nice sized ball.

You could make this recipe below dairy free simply by swapping two ingredients. I would recommend swapping the heavy cream with canned coconut milk, the creamy part that is solid from the top of the can. It is very similar to heavy cream because of it’s high fat content. It’s a much better option than using almond milk for this recipe. You can swap the butter with coconut oil and these chocolate truffles will be dairy free and just as delicious!
