Equipment

  • Food processor or mixer

Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1-2 tablespoons heavy cream optional – see note
  • cup Swerve Confectioners Powdered Sweetener or Truvia Sweet Complete Confectioners
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract or another flavor extract
  • cocoa powder
  • unsweetened coconut
  • chopped nuts

Instructions

  • In a food processor or mixer, combine ½ cup cocoa powder, cream cheese, cream (if using), and almond extract until well blended.
  • Using a small scoop or spoon, divide the mixture evenly and roll it into balls. Roll balls in the desired topping – cocoa, coconut, or chopped nuts.

Notes

The addition of heavy cream will give a sweeter taste and tone down the cream cheese.

You may want to place the cream cheese mixture in the refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes before forming it into balls if it’s too soft.

The easiest way to get uniform balls is to use a cookie scoop. It will also help to get the balls perfectly round.

For a smooth mixture, it’s best to use soft cream cheese. To soften it quickly, put it in the microwave for about 15 seconds.

The original recipe used 3 tablespoons of Truvia, a concentrated granular mix of stevia and erythritol. Since one-for-one powdered sweeteners are more common these days, the recipe changed to use one of those instead.
