The keto diet is everywhere these days – which can be a good thing, since it has people keeping a close eye on carbs and sugar. And to help fill the void for keto-friendly snacks – and satisfy even the strongest sweet tooth – Ben McLauchlin of Swerve shows us how to whip up these rich, decadent “Keto Bombs” in a flash!

Chocolate Coating:

  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil (melted) or salted butter

  • 2 tablespoons cocoa butter (melted)
