Nut lovers will enjoy this delicious sugar-free low-carb chocolate walnut fudge recipe. It has the consistency of real fudge and is loaded with chopped nuts.
Who doesn't love fudge? I'm a big fan of fudge and lately I've been craving low carb high fat fudge.
I consider fudge a fat bomb since it's got plenty of healthy fat. I do have to watch my portions, though, because the calories and small amount of carbs can add up.
That's why I usually cut my fudge into very small pieces so I can feel like I'm splurging with 2 pieces. Although most would cut this low carb chocolate walnut fudge into 36 pieces, I cut it into 56 bite size morsels which is plenty to last me a week while sharing with friends.
I've been using LC Foods sweetened condensed milk mix in my latest fudge creations. I find that this secret ingredient gives low carb fudge the consistency it's usually missing.
The low carb condensed milk mix also adds some fiber sweetener so I can cut back on added sweeteners. If you have a favorite fudge recipe that calls for sweetened condensed milk, the LC Foods mix will likely be a good substitute. You'll just need to replace any added sugar with a low carb alternative.
Back in my teenage years, I worked in a candy and nut shop. We used to make handmade candy, including fudge. Our fudge was prepared using a pre-made mix and this low carb chocolate walnut fudge is very similar to the kind we made in the store.
I love nuts, but if you don't, you could cut back or omit them completely. Pecans would also be a good nut to add in this low carb chocolate fudge if you prefer them over walnuts.
If you won't be able to eat all the fudge within a week, it freezes well for longer storage. I like to wrap a couple pieces in foil or plastic and then keep them all in a freezer bag. That way, I can easily thaw just a little at a time.

This is the best walnut fudge I’ve ever had in my 20 some years of eating low carb!
I almost didn’t try it because I’ve been disappointed SO many times before with BOTH the flavor AND texture (but especially the texture!)of low carb fudge.
This recipe is most definitely a FIVE star recipe! WOW!
Thank you SO very much for your expertise Lisa! I can DEFINITELY tell you worked in a candy and nut shop preparing fudge.
You are a prodigy!
I am conquering a serious autoimmune condition and so your recipe is literally helping me stay on course, giving me the type of options I need every once in a while to heal.
I’m looking forward to trying your other recipes. If they are as exceptional as this one I will be buying one of your books.
You deserve to prosper in your field!
Much love and Shalom to you and your home!
Thanks you, sincerely!
P. S. I used 4 TBSs of organic grass fed and finished whey and it worked perfectly.
This fudge looks to die for, can't wait to try it!
Sorry if this has already been asked - but I can't have dairy . Can I sub the condensed milk and cream with coconut cream?
The recipe calls for a specific powdered condensed milk mix which is not dairy-free. You could try using coconut cream and some coconut flour or dessicated coconut. But, there's no guarantee it will work out. You may need to make some other changes.
Jennifer, I used Laird Superfood, creamer (unsweetened) in place of the LC-Sweetened Condensed Milk mix the recipe called for (because I haven't received my LC-Sweetened Condensed Milk I purchased through Lisa's link yet). It turned out DIVINE! Even my mom LOVED it. She can't believe its low carb fudge!...and honestly neither can I, its the best I've EVER tasted (and I've been eating low carb for about 27 years!).
Thanks for that note! I'll add the option to use powdered cream to the recipe.
Lisa, my apologies, I sent you that link for condensed milk BEFORE I just took a closer look at this recipe and saw what you wrote in the first paragraph, which is that the LC Foods milk product added an important component to the fudge, duh! Sorry about that.
I' ve always liked LC Foods products myself....
Anyway, I get it now, lol!
Oh....My......Gosh.....I think I love you, lol!!!
Or at least you have made my day :-)) I LOVE Walnut Fudge and this recipe looks puurrrfect....
Love your website, thanks so much,
Thanks Leigh! It really is as good as it looks!
Lisa, thats good to know, that it's as good as it looks! It's going to be my first recipe after I get over the beginners stages of my anti-candida diet :-))
And to show my appreciation, I want to share this recipe for LC milk? I'm not sure if you have a recipe for it, but when I clicked the link for the LC milk, it went to the Amazon product.....
but this one is quick and easy, and you can do it all at home. It's by Carolyn F. at Low Carb Friends, who is very good, and her recipe got glowing comments. Here it is:
So thanks again Lisa, I'm now on your email list!
