What are keto cheesecake fat bombs?
Keto cheesecake fat bombs are single-serve keto cheesecakes to eat as a snack when you crave sugar. To make these keto chocolate fat bombs, you need:
- Cream cheese – softened your block of cream cheese at room temperature for 1 hour before using it in the recipe. Don’t exceed 1 hour to avoid bacteria growth. Learn why Cream Cheese is a good keto-friendly dairy product.
- Melted butter – I love to use unsalted butter in fat bomb recipes but if you love a touch of salt in your treats, feel free to use salted butter.
- Sour cream – this is the magic ingredient to add a tangy cheesecake flavor to your fat bombs.
- Powdered erythritol or any powdered keto sweetener you love, like allulose or monk fruit erythritol blends. Learn how to convert keto sweeteners!
- Vanilla extract
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
Prepare the chocolate cheesecake batter
First, beat the softened cream cheese, vanilla extract, and sour cream in a large mixing bowl using an electric beater. It takes about 45 seconds to form a fluffy cream cheese batter.
Then, stop the beater and add the remaining ingredients, unsweetened cocoa powder, powdered erythritol, and beat again until it forms a fluffy chocolate cheese batter.
Place the bowl with the cheesecake batter in the fridge for 10 minutes to slightly firm up the mixture. In fact, the batter is very sticky, and placing the bowl in the fridge makes it easier to roll the fat bombs in the next step.

Prepare a plate or silicone mold.
Meanwhile, prepare a plate covered with parchment paper or two 12-hole silicone muffin pans. Then, use coconut oil to grease the paper or the muffin pan.
Shape the fat bombs
Now, remove the bowl from the fridge and lightly oil your hands with coconut oil.
Then, scoop out about 25g/9oz of batter from the bowl using a tablespoon. Then, roll the batter into a ball between your hand palm.
The batter is sticky, and you won’t form perfectly round balls, and that’s fine. You will be able to smoothen the surface of the fat bombs in the next steps.
Freeze for 15 minutes
Place each fat bomb onto the plate or in the silicone muffin pan. Then, freeze for 15 minutes to firm up the cheesecake batter.
Finally, remove the fat bombs from the freezer and roll again each of them between your hands to improve their aspect and shape.
How to dip fat bomb in sugar-free chocolate?
This is optional, but dipping your fat bomb into sugar-free melted chocolate adds a delicious crunchy chocolate shell around the fat bombs.
You’ll love the balance of crunchy chocolate and melt-in-your-mouth cheesecake batter. It brings these simple fat bombs to the next level.
To make the chocolate shell, melt sugar-free chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave by 30-second bursts, stirring between each time to avoid burning chocolate.
Then, use two forks to hold the fat bomb and dip it into the melted chocolate. Next, wait a few seconds above the bowl to give the extra melted chocolate time to drop back into the bowl.
Finally, place the dipped keto chocolate cream cheese fat bomb onto the plate and freeze again for 15 minutes or until the shell is hard.
How to store keto cream cheese fat bombs?
These keto chocolate cream cheese fat bombs store very well in the fridge in a sealed container. If you don’t add the chocolate shell, space up the fat bombs in the box to prevent them from touching each other and sticking together.
Another option is to place each of them into a muffin paper case or roll each fat bomb in unsweetened desiccated coconut to protect them.
Nutrition panel without the chocolate shell
If you are after a quick snack on your keto diet, you probably don’t feel like adding the chocolate shell around these chocolate cream cheese fat bombs.
So below, I listed the nutrition panel for your fat bombs made without the chocolate shell. As a result, each chocolate fat bomb will be lighter and weighs about 25 g/0.9oz:
One fat bomb without a chocolate shell contains:
Calories: 108.6 kcal
Net carbs: 1.2g
Jump to the recipe below for the nutrition panel with a chocolate shell. The shell only adds 0.4 net carbs per fat bomb.
