Ingredients

  • ¼ cup 60 ml sugar-free dark chocolate, stevia-sweetened chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp MCT oil
  • coarse salt or sea salt
  • 1½ oz. 40 g raw macadamia nuts halves

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Select a truffle mold, mini muffin pan, or mini baking cups with wells that are 2x1”.
  2. Place 3 macadamia nut halves in each of 8 wells of the mold or mini muffin pan or in each of 8 mini baking cups.
  3. In a small microwave-safe dish, microwave the chocolate chips for 50 seconds or until melted. Stir until smooth, then add the MCT oil and a pinch of coarse salt. Mix until blended.
  4. Spoon some of the chocolate mixture into each well or baking cup, completely covering the nuts. Sprinkle additional salt over the chocolate.
  5. Transfer the mold or baking cups to the freezer for a minimum of 30 minutes, until the chocolate is solid.

 

Tip!

Suzanne uses Lily’s baking chips. These chocolate chips are dairy-free but are manufactured using equipment that may come into contact with dairy, so those with dairy allergies should be cautious.

Store extras in a zip-top plastic bag in the freezer for up to 6 months.

    What % of dark chocolate would you use? I find anything less than 90% has too much sugar in it.
  3. Digby
    Looks like milk chocolate, not dark, in the photo. I use 90% dark Lindt chocolate.

    Where do you find raw macadamia nuts? All the ones I can find are roasted.

    I’ve tried this twice and both times chocolate seizes when I add MCT oil. How do you keep it from seizing?

    Let me give you another recipe. Don't use sugar alcohols like erythritol because it changes your gut flora in a bad way!
    If you are one off the lucky people who can't taste the bitter aftertaste of Stevia you should use it instead of honey but if you are like me
    I would just use a little bit of honey because even of you eat 100gr. it shouldn't kick you out of ketosis.

    100gr. Organic coconut butter
    10gr. Dark chocolate 85% (with normal sugar)
    5gr. Honey
    2gr. Orange zest

    how many net carbs? 7?

    2g net carbs. You can see the 2g in the green circle in the picture and click the Nutrition tab under the list of ingredients for full breakdown.

    I just tried this. First batch (which I tried to do as a double) was a disaster. Second and third batches, which I did as only 1/4 c. of the chips, came beautifully. Now, to see if they set up in the fridge, or if they have to be frozen to harden. The "disaster" batch actually still tastes good -- like fudge that gets "sugary". Very quick recipe. A fun experiment, at least.

    Can I use coconut oil instead of mct oil

    Yes, that should be a good substitute.

    Coconut oil works great instead of MCT oil. I just made these. They are to die for!
  18. Jeanette
    I made these using butter instead of MCT oil (didn’t have any) and I really don’t like coconut oil. They turned out delicious! Even my non-keto husband enjoyed them

    These are a great treat! I use Lindt 90% chocolate. Have varied them by replacing the macadamia nuts with ground hazelnuts and also tried dessicated coconut - easier for my mum to enjoy! The Lindt is 8.4 carbs total so can easily add something different to keep them at 1 carb each. I manage to get 10 chocolates if I make them in petit four cases.

    In the UK we have a 99% 'black chocolate' (by Montezuma). Have tried using that too but needed to add one drop of liquid sweetener.
