Creamy white chocolate ganache flavored with rosewater and covered in crispy dark chocolate. The hardest part is not to eat all of these Keto Rose Water Chocolate Truffles at once!
Wow, I didn’t expect what a big hit these Keto Rose Water Chocolate Truffles would be with my kids! My 7-year-old keeps asking me to make more. And of course, I will! I’m actually planning on making them for Valentine’s Day! The rose theme and their gorgeous look make them a perfect keto dessert for Valentine’s or other special occasions.
The white chocolate ganache filling is incredibly creamy and fluffy, thanks to the whipped heavy cream. The addition of rose water makes the ganache simply irresistible. Dipped in melted dark chocolate and you have yourself gorgeous Keto Rose Water Chocolate Truffles!
Are these Chocolate Truffles really KETO?
They sure are! Each keto truffle contains only 1 gram of carbs! And that makes sense, since this recipe doesn’t use any added sugar, grains, or other high-carb ingredients.
To make the chocolate ganache, you only need heavy cream, sugar-free white chocolate, and rose water. No sugar, no nothing! The chocolate coating of the keto truffles is made with sugar-free dark chocolate and coconut oil. It’s that easy, it’s that low-carb!
Tips for making irresistible Keto Rose Water Chocolate Truffles!
Rose water. The rose water is the star of this show. I use the Nielsen-Massey rose water. It is highly concentrated, and I only need to use a few drops to give my desserts a rose flavor (unlike other rose waters that are thinner and require several teaspoons). You can also use other brands of rose water but may need to increase the amount of rose water a bit for the desired flowery aroma. Just make sure the rose water you buy is food-grade!
Food dye. Using food coloring is optional for this recipe. I wanted to give my ganache filling a pink hue and picked Watkin’s natural food coloring. I like the fact that their dye is natural, but the downside is the color fades a bit. So, if you are using a natural dye, make the shade initially a bit darker than your desired color, as the color may fade somewhat.
Chill. Chilling, freezing. Freezing, chilling. To make these Keto Chocolate Truffle a success, you need to chill them a few times!
FIRST, after melting your white chocolate chips in the heavy cream, chill your ganache for about 1 hour in the fridge (or 20 minutes in the freezer) until COMPLETELY chilled through. Only then, whip the mixture with a hand mixer.
SECOND, pipe your white chocolate ganache onto a linked baking sheet or cutting board, and let the dollops freeze hard in your freezer. This will take about 30 minutes.
LAST, after coating the ganache dollops with melted dark chocolate, let the truffles set in the fridge before serving. The coating hardens within 30 minutes (or 15 min in the freezer). DONE!

Keto Rose Water Chocolate Truffles
- In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, bring heavy cream to a steam. Stir to prevent bottom from burning. Turn off heat and stir in white chocolate chips until completely melted.
- Pour ganache into a bowl and let completely chill through (about 1 hour in fridge and 20 minutes in freezer).
- Add rose water and a few drops of red food coloring (optional) and beat with a hand mixer until ganache turns creamy and thick.
- Line baking sheet or cutting board with parchment paper. Fit a piping bag with a round piping tip and fill with the ganache. Pipe small dollops of about 1.5 inches in diameter onto the lined sheet. Instead of a piping bag, you can also use a teaspoon to drop the ganache on the sheet. Place into freezer until completely frozen (for about 30 minutes).
- Melt the dark chocolate chips in a double boiler (over simmering, not boiling water), until completely melted. Stir chocolate constantly until melted.
- Remove the ganache dollops from the freezer. With a fork, dip the dollops into the melted chocolate, and coat them one by one. If desired, garnish the truffles with rose petals before the coating harden. Let the truffles completely set in fridge (30 minutes) or freezer (15 minutes) before serving.
- Keep leftovers in the fridge for about one week or freeze in an airtight container for up to one month.
