- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 12 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
- 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 1 teaspoon pure stevia extract
- 1 teaspoon Liquid Stevia Peppermint Sweet Drops™
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups sugar free chocolate chips
- Optional: natural colored pink sprinkles
Over medium low heat, add the cream and butter to a saucepan. Stir it until it melts and the cream simmers. Remove from heat and add in baking chocolate, stevia and salt. Stir until all melted and combined well. Pour mixture into a bowl and refrigerate until firm enough to mound into a spoon, about 30 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop by tablespoons the chocolate mixture. Cover this and refrigerate again for another 30 minutes. Roll each mound until smooth and freeze for 20 minutes. Melt the chocolate chips and dip truffles in the melted chocolate. Remove with a fork, shake off excess and return to baking sheet. Sprinkle optional pink sprinkles on top. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
