Best of all, there is no cooking involved! This No-Cook Fudge is super easy to make and perfect for all levels of cooks.
Ingredients for Making Keto Chocolate Fudge
- Cocoa Powder: A good quality cocoa powder will go a long way to great taste! Make sure you use cocoa powder that is less than a year old because it loses its flavor quickly after that. And always - read the label and check for carbs.
- Coconut Oil: Either refined or unrefined will work here. Unrefined will lend a more robust coconut flavor to the fudge.
- Powdered Allulose: Any powdered sweetener will work here. I like allulose because it doesn't crystalize when frozen and produces a softer fudge. Use whatever you prefer.
- Nut Butter: I used peanut butter, but almond butter will work too.
- Heavy Cream: If you are low carb and not keto, you can use half and half.
- Vanilla Extract: Use the best quality you can - it makes a big difference in the taste!
- Pecans: This is entirely optional, but I love the texture that nuts add to low carb fudge.
Tips & Tricks
- Make sure you keep this in the refrigerator or freezer as it gets very soft at room temperature.
- You can use other sweeteners, but I prefer powdered allulose here because it keeps the fudge soft when chilled. If you want the texture to be a bit more firm, powdered Swerve is a good option.
- For clean cuts, wipe the knife between cuts.
Feel free to play with the topping here. Any chopped keto-friendly nut will work. Maldon sea salt is another fun option.
Tools Needed to Make Keto Chocolate Fudge
You can refrigerate this low carb fudge for up to five days or freeze it for up to three months. I like the texture straight from the freezer!
How to Make Keto Chocolate Fudge
First, start by lining an 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper. You want the paper to hang over the edges so that the fudge is easy to lift from the pan when it is frozen.
Combine the cocoa powder, coconut oil, Swerve, peanut butter, and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer.
Beat until smooth, and then stir in the pecans if you are adding them.
Transfer to the prepared pan.
Go crazy if you want, and sprinkle the top with more pecans. Or, for a sweet and salty combo, try salted peanuts or Maldon sea salt.
Freeze for 1 hour, and then cut into pieces.
Store in the refrigerator or freezer until serving.
