You must try this amazing and simple recipe for sugar free and low carb walnut brandy truffles. Not only are they sugar free, they're low carb and gluten free. #lowcarb #sugarfree #glutenfree |

Sugar Free Walnut and Brandy Truffles

Makes 20
250g / 9 oz regular cream cheese block (not spreadable)
100g/ 3.5 oz butter melted
4 tbs unsweetened dark cocoa powder 
¼ cup walnut pieces 
3 tbs granulated stevia, or sweetener of choice, to taste 
1-2 tbs brandy *see notes 

1. Warm the cream cheese block to room temperature or in the microwave for 15 seconds, until it is soft enough to work with. 
2. Add the melted butter and mix through with a fork to ensure it is lump free and smooth. 
3. Add the cocoa powder, stevia and brandy. Mix until thoroughly combined. 
4. Gently stir through the tiny walnut pieces and refrigerate until firm enough to roll into balls. 
5. 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. 
6. 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.
