How to Make It
- Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until it foams up and brown (but not black!) flecks appear. Remove from the heat and place in the refrigerator to cool for 10 minutes.
- Add the sweetener, pecans, vanilla, and salt to the browned butter and stir well to combine.
- When the mixture is at room temperature and has returned to a solid consistency, use a mini ice cream scooper or spoon to scoop out 1-inch balls of the mixture. Place the balls on a serving platter and set the platter in the refrigerator while you make the chocolate drizzle.
- To make the drizzle, combine the cream, sweetener, and chopped chocolate in a double boiler or in a heat-safe bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Heat on low, stirring, just until the chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Allow to cool in the refrigerator for 8 minutes or until thickened, but still a bit warm; if it hardens too much, return the drizzle to the double boiler and reheat gently.
- Remove the truffles from the fridge and use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over each truffle. Garnish each truffle with crushed pecans. Serve at room temperature.
- Store extras in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
