My favourite chocolate is the star of the show with these delicious low carb chocolate truffles. I know right?? How can they be low carb?
Officially you have to use a sweetener that is not sugar based, personally I don't mind a few carbs, (clearly) and so I go with the maple syrup, but knock yourself out and go fully keto with a sugar substitute. They still taste pretty good, but there may be some other side effects. Read the package directions carefully before eating too many!
