For the truffles:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz sugar-free dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

For the coating:

  • 4 oz sugar-free dark chocolate, melted
  • Crushed sugar-free peppermint candies (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it begins to steam. Do not let it boil.
  2. Place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let it sit for a few minutes to melt the chocolate.
  3. Stir the chocolate and cream mixture until smooth. Add the softened butter and peppermint extract, and stir until well combined.
  4. Cover the mixture and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until firm enough to handle.
  5. Using a spoon or a small scoop, roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Place the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for another 30 minutes.
  6. Dip each truffle into the melted chocolate to coat, then place back on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies if using.
  7. Refrigerate the truffles until the chocolate coating is set, about 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
