Yes, you can enjoy truffles on the low FODMAP diet, and we can’t think of a more direct way to enjoy dark chocolate than with a couple of our Low FODMAP Chocolate Dipped Truffles. These truffles are rich and dark through and through from a silky ganache center to their crisp outer chocolate shell. For an easier version, check out our cocoa dusted Low FODMAP Dark Chocolate Truffles; these are a little fancier and require tempering.
Low FODMAP Serving Size Info: Makes about 90 truffles; 45 servings; serving size 2 truffles
Make the Ganache: Place cream in a large saucepan and heat over medium heat until cream just comes to a simmer. Remove from heat and immediately stir 1-pound (455 g) chocolate into the hot cream. Cover the pot and allow to sit for 5 minutes; the heat should melt the chocolate. Stir very gently until smooth, but so not whisk, which would add air.
Temper the Remaining Chocolate: Line two rimmed half-sheet pan with aluminum foil, shiny side up, smoothing out any wrinkles.
• If you chop your chocolate finely enough, it should melt in the hot cream. If it does not, you can place the pan over very low heat and stir until melted; take care not to scorch the chocolate.
• You can create a whiskey-flavored truffle. Whiskey has been lab tested by Monash University. It is low FODMAP Green Light at a 30 ml serving size. Simply stir 1 to 2 tablespoons of whiskey into your finished ganache, depending on the strength you would like.
