If I’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that I need to be prepared for chocolate cravings. They can strike at any time, and unless I have an easy treat ready to go… well, let’s just say it isn’t pretty.
Thankfully, this decadent Keto fudge always hits the spot and is so easy to prepare! Sure, it needs to chill in the fridge for at least three hours before serving. But it’s so good, I know it’s worth the wait.
Plus, the recipe only requires six simple ingredients to make it. You probably already have all of them in your kitchen. Just heat the mixture on the stove, pour into a pan, and allow the fudge to chill to soft, indulgent perfection.
This is also a fantastic treat to bring to parties or get-togethers! Nobody can ever believe the recipe is Keto, and I always feel better knowing there will be at least one low-carb dessert for me to enjoy.
Whether you’re craving chocolate or looking for a crowd-pleasing dessert, this Keto fudge never disappoints. After one bite, you’ll be hooked!
Ingredients For Keto Chocolate Fudge
The combination of full fat coconut milk, coconut oil, and almond butter give this fudge its rich, chewy, wonderful texture. Every bite is as irresistible as the last!
I also love these ingredients because they blend so well together without overpowering the taste of the chocolate fudge. You won’t really detect the almond butter or the coconut at all.
If you have a nut allergy, you can always substitute sunflower seed butter. Peanut butter also works, but because the flavor is stronger than almond butter, it will change the overall taste a bit.
Sugar-free maple syrup gives the fudge its sweetness as well as some wonderful stickiness. As far as taste and texture go, this ingredient works double-time!
Finally, unsweetened cocoa powder and vanilla extract turn this recipe into a heavenly treat. The higher quality cocoa you use, the richer the taste will be, so this is one area where it might be worth it to splurge a little.
How Many Carbs In Fudge?
Traditional fudge is made by mixing sugar, butter, and milk, so it’s no surprise that the carbs are much higher than what we want for a Keto way of eating. Holiday Gable fudge bites, for example, have 21 grams of carbs and 20 grams of sugar per serving.
This Keto chocolate fudge, on the other hand, has 3.6 grams of carbohydrates per serving. Along with 2 grams of fiber, that comes out to only 1.6 net carbs per piece!
How To Make This Recipe Into Paleo Fudge
If you’re following a Paleo way of eating, it’s super easy to adapt this recipe. In fact, you only need to swap out one ingredient.
Rather than using sugar-free maple syrup, grab your favorite brand of pure maple syrup instead! You’ll still use the same amount, and it will give you that wonderful sticky sweetness that makes fudge so irresistible.
How easy is that?
