My family absolutely loved these truffles. So much so that they will DEFINITELY be making an appearance at a lot of our gatherings, honestly. They’re just so easy to make, not to mention delicious! I want to make them a tradition now!
Lately, I have been making a batch of these truffles just for snacking purposes – they’re just that good.

Keto Fat Bombs: Ingredients & Equipment
For this Keto Bacon and Sun-Dried Tomato Truffle recipe, you’ll need …
- cream cheese – softened. The base of your truffles or fat bomb.
- butter, sun-dried tomatoes, salt, and garlic powder – these ingredients form the rest of your truffle or fat bomb alongside the cream cheese. Make sure the butter is salted, and the tomatoes are drained and chopped!
- cooked bacon and fresh parsley – both finely chopped. The tasty outer layer of your truffles! You’ll roll the cream cheese balls in these at the end of the recipe.
- bowls – for mixing your ingredients. You’ll need one for the cream cheese mixture and one for the bacon/parsley.
How to make easy keto snacks
First, make your cream cheese mixture. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, butter, sun-dried tomatoes, salt, and garlic powder with a rubber spatula. Mix until it’s well combined. Refrigerate the mixture until it’s firm, which should take about 30 minutes.
Next, form your truffles. In another medium bowl, combine the bacon and parsley. Using wet hands, roll the cream cheese mixture into 1-inch balls, then roll each ball into the bacon and parsley mixture to coat.
Finally, chill those truffles … and serve! Keep the truffles chilled until you’re ready to eat them. They’re best within two days!

The prep time is about 10 minutes, and the time to let the mixture chill is about 30 minutes. It’s very hands-off.
