I have to say that I was quite surprised to learn that many don't know you can have chocolate on the keto diet. Of course, it has to be a specific type, like the kind I use with these Keto Sweet Cream Truffles. However, you can definitely have chocolate without ruining your diet.
The center of these Keto Sweet Cream Truffles is mind-blowing. You will feel like you're cheating on your diet but, you're really not. They're a sweet delight to kill any sweet tooth craving.

Who made up this Keto Sweet Cream Truffles recipe?
But there's another reason that I love these Keto Sweet cream truffles--and that's because my brother and I made up this recipe when we were kids.
I mean, who else but kids would think of randomly cooking nothing but cream and sugar together??
I am not entirely sure whose idea it was to cook cream and sugar together, but I think it was my brother's idea. But here's the thing.
It was absolutely delicious! It makes a sweet, creamy, slightly chewy center--sort of like taffy but better.
I will say that I rarely bother to cover them with chocolate. The center by itself is quick to make, quicker to eat, and just as delicious as the whole shebang.
However, covering them with chocolate does make for a better presentation and a less sticky feast.

Make the Truffle Centers
- In a nonstick saucepan, cook the heavy whipping cream and Swerve, stirring frequently, until the sauce has turned light brown and has thickened. You will be evaporating out most of the liquid from the cream and will have a thick, light brown mixture. This should take about 5-6 minutes. Pour into a small bowl and the mixture in the fridge to firm up for about 1 hour. (If you don't plan to dip them in chocolate, you can eat them warm and they're absolutely delicious this way as well.)
- Remove and make 12 small balls with the chewy mixture. Set them back in the fridge while you get the coating ready.
Make the Chocolate Coating
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate and butter together for about 30 seconds, and stir. Let the mix rest for a minute and stir again to melt any remaining chocolate or butter.
Make the Truffles
- Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
- Remove the sweet cream centers and place them on a fork. Dip the fork into the chocolate coating, working fast to keep the chocolate from hardening. You may find it helpful to put the bowl of chocolate in a pan of hot water to keep it liquid.
- Take each dipped truffle and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours until firm. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
