Low-Carb Chocolate Truffles

2 Oz Cream Cheese

¾ C Ricotta

½ C Splenda (The kind that measures the same as sugar cup for cup)

2 Tbsp. Vanilla extract

2 Tbsp. Instant espresso powder

½ C Dutch Process Cocoa Powder

½ C Chopped nuts (I prefer the sliced almonds that I lightly chop further in a food processor)

Put all ingredients except the almonds in a food processor and process until fully blended. Scrape down the sides with a spatula to incorporate all ingredients to make a thick frosting like substance.

Spoon out uniform portions to form into balls which are then rolled in the nuts

Refrigerate to let flavors meld and the chocolate to firm up a bit.

Enjoy when that desire for something rich, sweet and chocolaty hits.

Note: The cheeses are all full fat. Reduced fat would ruin the recipe in my opinion. These are not low calorie, they are low carb. See our podcast to learn why this works on a weight loss plan.
