Equipment

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream 170 grams
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 42 grams
  • tablespoons keto powdered sugar 12 grams, such as Swerve Confectioners, Besti Powdered Erythritol, Besti Powdered Allulose, or So Nourished Powdered Erythritol
  • teaspoon liquid Stevia extract
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • teaspoons pure vanilla extract 5 grams
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut 113 grams
  • 9 whole almonds
  • 4.5 ounces stevia-sweetened dark chocolate 128 grams, such as Lily’s

Instructions

  • Add the cream, butter, keto powdered sugar, liquid stevia, and salt to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then boil until it’s thick, glossy, and reduced to about ½ to ⅔ cup, about 4-5 minutes, whisking frequently. Remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla.
    ¾ cup heavy whipping cream, 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, 1½ tablespoons keto powdered sugar, ⅛ teaspoon liquid Stevia extract, 1 pinch kosher salt, 1¼ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Add the coconut and reduced cream mixture to a large heat-proof bowl and stir to combine. Cool to room temperature.
    1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • Lay a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the coconut mixture. Place the coconut in the freezer until the mixture is firm enough to shape into balls when squeezed, about 10 minutes.
  • Divide the mixture into 9 equal parts and shape each into a ball, squeezing gently so they hold their shape. Gently press 1 almond into each coconut ball. Freeze for 5-10 minutes.
    9 whole almonds
  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or microwave-safe bowl. Dip each coconut ball in chocolate, then place it on a tray lined with wax paper or parchment paper. If there is any chocolate leftover, drizzle it decoratively on top.

Notes

  • When preparing this Keto Dessert, you can melt your chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl if you don't have a true double boiler.
  • You may want to use toothpicks or forks to hold your coconut balls while dipping them into the melted chocolate. It makes it a lot easier for you to coat the entire coconut ball with chocolate without getting chocolate all over your hands.
  • Use wax paper or parchment paper on a tray to make the cleanup process easier. You can set your dipped coconut balls on the tray with the wax or parchment paper immediately after dipping them into the hot, melted chocolate.
Storage: Store keto Almond Joy fat bombs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
