Sugar Free Walnut And Brandy Truffles
Sugar free walnut and brandy truffles are so filling, you may only be able to eat one (or possibly two) but that's the point. High healthy fats keep you fuller for longer, and keeps those high sugar treats craving away.
granulated sweetener of choice
or more, to your taste
brandy *see notes
Warm the cream cheese block to room temperature or in the microwave for 15 seconds, until it is soft enough to work with.
Add the melted butter and mix through with a fork to ensure it is lump free and smooth.
Add the cocoa powder, sweetener and brandy. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Gently stir through the tiny walnut pieces and refrigerate until firm enough to roll into balls.
Roll a heaped teaspoon at a time and place each truffle on a plate. Place the plate into the fridge again for an hour or two for the truffles to really set firmly.
Roll in cocoa powder if you like, or crushed walnuts, pistachios, pecans etc.
*Brandy is optional and is intended for adults only. You can omit this entirely or you can add alcohol free brandy essence.
