Chocolate Fat Bombs Recipe
Fat bombs are famous amongst those following a keto diet. They are a great sweet treat to enjoy between meals or as a healthy dessert. We’ve had peanut butter fat bombs, almond butter fat bombs, and cookie dough fat bombs.
It’s time for the classic chocolate to get the fat bomb treatment.
Unlike traditional fat bombs, my recipe is made without coconut, without cream cheese, and without any granulated sweeteners. I wanted to change things up, as every other chocolate fat bomb recipe was incredibly bitter.
Why are all chocolate fat bombs bitter?
Most chocolate fat bombs are bitter, as they call for a liquid sweetener or granulated sweetener. Using either of these would require you to ensure the sweetness remains once the fat bomb has firmed up.
To ensure my fat bomb recipe is sweet and creamy, we will use pre-sweetened chocolate chips!
Chocolate Fat Bombs Ingredients

- Keto Chocolate Chips
How to make chocolate fat bombs
Step 1: Line a large plate with parchment paper and set aside.
Step 2: In a microwave-safe bowl or in a small saucepan, combine your almond butter with your chocolate chips. Melt until fully combined.
Step 3: Allow the mixture to cool slightly. Using a cookie scoop, roll out small balls of chocolate and place on the lined plate.
Step 4: Place the plate in the freezer until they have firmed up.
Step 5: If desired, melt extra chocolate. Using two forks, dip each ball in the melted chocolate until fully coated. Refrigerate until chocolate has firmed up.
Storing chocolate fat bombs
If you choose to coat the fat bombs in extra chocolate, they can be kept at room temperature, in a sealed container. This will keep for at least 2 weeks.
Omitting the chocolate coating will yield a super soft and fudgy texture. This means that you will need to keep the chocolate fat bombs refrigerated. Store fat bombs in a sealed container.
Fat bombs are freezer friendly, and taste fantastic straight from the freezer. They will keep well frozen for at least 6 months.
Enjoying fat bombs from the freezer is simple, and requires minimal thawing. Simply enjoy directly from the freezer or wait 10-15 minutes, or until desired creamy texture.

Tips and Tricks for fool-proof Chocolate Fat Bombs
Ensure your almond butter (or nut/seed butter) is of the smooth variety. If you use crunchy or a firm one, it will have an odd texture and will be difficult to melt with the chocolate.
Don’t melt your ingredients together on high heat. If you use the microwave method, heat on half-watt power and check in 30-second spurts. If you use the small saucepan, heat on low heat.
