A sugar-free low-carb chocolate fudge that's made with a secret ingredient. With only 1 gram carb per square, it's the perfect treat for a keto diet.
Are you looking for a sugar free fudge recipe that's super low in carbs? How about making one out of cheese?
I found a low carb chocolate fudge recipe in an old low carb magazine. The original recipe called for Splenda and Sweet 'n Low. Since I'm trying to stay away from artificial sweeteners, I modified the recipe to use erythritol and stevia.
Splenda also seems to result in an odd taste when used to sweeten chocolate. I thought this fudge came out too soft.
However, I think this low carb chocolate fudge recipe could be worked into a really good hot fudge sauce. The warm mixture was really tasty and reminded me of a thick chocolate ice cream topping.
I will keep looking for a good sugar free chocolate fudge recipe that is firmer than this one. This fudge tastes great, but it tends to melt in your hand when eating. Perhaps adding a bit of natural protein powder or whole milk powder would firm things up.
I'm not a fan of processed American cheese, either. Next time, I will work in some cream cheese or other soft cheese. I've made a peanut butter fudge using cream cheese and it was amazing.
If you love peanut butter, be sure to check out my cream cheese peanut butter fudge recipe. You'll be so happy you did. And, if you'd like another chocolate based recipe, take a look at the keto fudge.
