What is a chocolate truffle?
A chocolate truffle does not contain a traditional fungi truffle (for the most part- we aren’t quite that fancy here!), but they do look similar to a traditional truffle, which is where they got the name. A chocolate truffle is simply tempered chocolate covered with a chocolate ganache. There are many variations that can be made on this classic dessert, which is what I’ve done here!

How do I make these Pumpkin keto fat bombs?
These easy pumpkin truffles are ready in only 4 simple steps!
- Using a mixer, blend together the cream cheese, pumpkin, monkfruit, coconut flour, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice.
- Scoop out and roll into a ball. Set on wax paper and place in the freezer.
- While the truffles are freezing, heat the coconut oil in a double broiler (or in a microwave safe bowl). Add the chocolate chips and stir until smooth and melted.
- Carefully dip the truffles into the chocolate using two forks. Top with sea salt or more pumpkin pie spice. Freeze for 10 more minutes before enjoying.
Can I use a different type of flour for Chocolate Truffles?
I don’t recommend it. Coconut flour really soaks up moisture, and the pumpkin puree provides a large amount, so you’re going to want the flour to absorb all of that excess moisture for the best result.
How to melt chocolate chips for pumpkin cheesecake
There are two ways that you can melt chocolate chips- either in a double broiler on the stove top or in the microwave. If you’re using a double broiler, you’re going to add water to the bottom pan until it boils. Once it’s boiling, reduce to a simmer. Add your chocolate chips to the second pan and stir slowly, allowing the chocolate to slowly melt. If you’re melting in the microwave, add to a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir and heat for 30 more seconds. Repeat until your chocolate is completely melted.
