These crunchy keto chocolate bars kind of remind me of the Toblerone bars I used to have. They are such a nice treat to have after dinner. Plus, they’re super easy to prepare and you will only need three ingredients.

Half a bar has a total of only 3.5 grams of net carbs.

The ingredients for these crunchy keto chocolate bars

Keto dark chocolate: When choosing chocolate, I like to use pure, at least 70% cacao dark chocolate because the darker the cacao content, the higher anti-oxidants. Also, I want the first ingredient in the list to be chocolate and not a sweetener. My favorite keto chocolate to use is the one from Funky Fat Choc. I love this brand so much because it makes chocolate with clean ingredients that are healthy and taste delicious. (Get 10% off your order when you buy from them with code “EVY”) This brand is only available in Europe.

If you’re living in the US, I’d recommend the 70% dark chocolate from Lily’s when it comes down to clean ingredients.

Pork rinds: To create a crunch in these chocolate bars, I used pork rinds which I turned into crumbs in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can put them in a ziplock bag and hit them with a rolling pin to turn them into crumbs. And if you want to skip this process altogether, you can use pre-made pork crumbs.

The almond butter: When choosing a nut butter, always check the ingredient list to make sure the only ingredient is the specific nut. For almond butter, only almonds should be listed in the ingredient list. Nothing more. You’ll often find nut butter with added oils like sunflower oil, canola oil, palm oil or soybean oil, and even sugar. You’ll want to avoid these since they can cause inflammation in the body or spike your blood sugar.

How do I store these crunchy keto chocolate bars?

It’s best to store them in a glass container in the fridge. They’ll last up to 2 weeks.

What is a double boiler?

A double boiler also called ‘Bain-Marie’ is a large pot filled with water, heated on the stove, with a smaller pot inserted in the water in which you’ll add the chocolate to melt. This prevents the chocolate from burning.

Tools used in this recipe

Sometimes you just want something nice and sweet, that is keto-friendly but also doesn’t take you hours to prepare in the kitchen. Well, this recipe will set you up with just that. This keto-friendly chocolate mousse is super delicious and ready in no time!

One serving has only 2 grams of net carbs.

The ingredients for this keto chocolate mousse

Heavy cream: When choosing a heavy cream make sure it’s unsweetened, organic, and preferably from grass-fed, grass-finished cows. This way you avoid the added sugars, antibiotics, and GMO crops that are fed to these animals which in turn can harm your health.

Raw cacao powderRaw cacao powder is unsweetened and in the purest form. This way, you can avoid any extra additives that are often found in most chocolate.

Powdered erythritol: I like to use erythritol as a sweetener for my keto recipes. You can also replace this sweetener with any other keto-friendly sweetener of your likings like monk fruit or stevia. Make sure to use a powdered (or liquid stevia) form, this prevents the mousse to taste kind of ‘crunchy’.

The flavoring: To give the chocolate butter mousse some extra flavor, I added vanilla extract. You can choose to leave this ingredient out, but I prefer to use it since it gives it a more delicious taste.

How do you store this dessert?

These keto-friendly Christmas chocolates will put you straight into a Holiday mood without worrying about being knocked out of ketosis.

To make these super cute chocolates you’ll only need 2 or 3 ingredients, depending on how many layers you’d like to make these chocolates in. I used dark and white chocolate, but if you’re not a fan of white chocolate, you can also just use dark chocolate.

I made these chocolates for my little 4-year-old and she absolutely loved them, so these are definitely a kids pleaser. Holidays can be quite overwhelming with all the sugary candies. But it doesn’t have to be. By making your own Holiday candy you can still enjoy the holidays in a healthy way without feeling deprived.

You’ll need a mold for making these chocolates, which you can easily find on amazon.

In this recipe, I used their dark chocolate with hazelnuts. It gives these chocolates a nice little crunch.

I also used this chocolate in my recipe for the keto peanut butter cups.

Calories: 31kcal

Equipment

  • christmas molds

Ingredients

Instructions

For the dark layer

  • In a double boiler add 1 tablespoon coconut oil and break the dark chocolate in pieces into the pot. Bring to a melt. Add more coconut oil if you need the chocolate to be more liquid.
  • Transfer the melted chocolate into the mold with the help of a teaspoon. Don't fill them up completely, to leave some room for the white chocolate layer.
  • Let the chocolate harden in the freezer and melt the white chocolate in the meantime in the same way as the dark chocolate.

For the white layer

  • Take the mold with the dark chocolate out of the freezer and fill it up until the edge with the melted white chocolate.
  • Let the mold rest in the refrigerator for another few minutes until the chocolate is hardened out.
  • When the chocolate is hard, remove them from the mold. Place them onto a plate and store them in the fridge.

Notes

Store the prepared chocolates in the refrigerator, as they tend to melt at room temperature.
