Creamy sugar-free truffles

When I made my original chocolate mint truffles, I asked what other flavour would you like me to develop. Loud and clear the two winners were brandy or walnuts, so I thought why not combine the two? So here are my sugar-free walnut and brandy truffles.

I developed these simple sugar-free walnut and brandy truffles which are even lower in carbs than the original recipe. These are intended for adults only as they contain alcohol. If you would like these to be alcohol-free you can omit the brandy entirely or use alcohol-free brandy essence.

        Hi Libby
        Awesome recipe as usual. Love the high omega 3s from the walnuts. Perfect treat for me and my liver. Thanks again for being my fav blogger. Will be pinning this one right now. XX Justine

  2. Looks a brilliant idea. Works so well just as walnuts, but of course a little bit more special with brandy added too.

    Well Done

    All the best Jan

  3. I love this recipe!!!!!!!! I added some almond meal to the mix and rolled in almond meal. Very yummy – thank you!

  4. Hi Libby – I’m new to low carb and have been using your website which is a god-send – thanks 🙂

    I’ve made these once, but wondered if rum would also be ok? I’ve tried to look at the labels of spirits but they don’t show any info, and so didn’t know if rum was the same as brandy as if so that would also be good?

    Thanks again

  5. Oh my goodness Libby, you are a genius
    Just made these tonight, they are bloody fantastic!!
    Thank you for bringing these into my life!! Love your work

  6. Hello Libby – thank you for sharing this recipe. I can’t get the cream cheese block here in the UK like I used to be able to in Australia. Should I use extra butter to make it more solid? Or maybe cacao butter?
