Low Carb Keto Fudge


Fudge on a low carb plan? Yes, you read correctly! There is a place for decadent fudge on a low carb plan. What makes this a great keto fudge is the addition of full fat cream cheese. Say that five times in a row! Boy has this girl come a long way when it comes to embracing fat.  It’s hard to believe that for years I shunned it to the point that my body was starving for real food.:

Raised during an era that feared fat we were urged to banish it from our diets at all cost.  So we stocked our pantries full of low-fat sugar-laden items believing we were making a healthy choice. Unfortunately, our country’s health actually declined when we made this shift, mine included.

How did this happen? Well, when we went low fat we started eating more sugar, refined carbs and processed foods. In addition, we drastically reduced the healthy fats from our diet, leaving us deprived of its benefits.

Today, we have doctors like Dr. David Perlmutter from Grain Brain pointing to the lack of fat in our diets as a main reason for the rise in diseases like Alzheimer’s, anxiety, ADHD, and depression to name a few.

So you know what I think? That I am doing the world a favor by making a low carb keto fudge, ok maybe not the world but my family is certainly happier.

  1. Forgot to tell you that I also added the words "Mix in optional nuts" before the paragraph that begins "Spread the fudge..." Thanks again for the recipe! :o)
  2. I haven't tried it yet, but I have calculated the following carbs: Total net carbs = 21.6 (12 pieces would be 1.8 net carb each, 10 pieces would be 2.1 each). Hope this is correct - can't wait to try it.
    • Yay! Thanks for sharing Glenda
      • OK, I tried it. I like the rich, creamy, good flavor, however, the Swerve needs to be powdered. The granulated Swerve doesn't dissolve - stays gritty - so I will use powdered Swerve next time to avoid the grittiness. Additionally, I think I will use 3 squares of chocolate next time to make it a deeper chocolate fudge. Of course, it will change the carb count a little. Anyway, that's my changes. Thanks again for the recipe.
        • Sounds like a great idea 🙌🏻
          • I tried the fudge a second time and must say that both my husband and I love it with the changes I made. My changes are that I used an additional chocolate square, a little more sweetener (to offset the extra unsweetened chocolate), and I used confectioner's (powdered) Swerve rather than granulated. This got rid of the grittiness I had when using granulated. Now the recipe is just perfect for us. Thanks again!
          • Sounds great Glenda! Thanks for the tips. Do you mind if I update the recipe to reflect your wise choices? I am a believer that we can always improve. 😜😘
          • Of course you may share my experiences with this recipe. I really like this fudge. Here is what I came up with for your recipe. I hope it helps. Using powdered sweetener is key to making it smooth, not gritty. My granulated swerve just didn't dissolve, but the powdered Swerve was perfect. Plus, adding the extra 1 oz of chocolate only changes the entire recipe by about 2.5 carbs. Since I increased the chocolate, I increased the sweetener to 3/4 cup. I've updated the carb count to include the extra chocolate. This is how my recipe reads: Ingredients: 1 Stick Butter (0 net carbs) 3 oz. Unsweetened Chocolate I used Bakers (10 net carbs) 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract (0 net carbs) 1 8 oz. package Cream Cheese, softened (6 net carbs) 3/4 Cup powdered Swerve Sugar Substitute (0 net carbs) 1 Cup of Crushed Walnuts or Other Favorite Low Carb Nut (Optional) (8 net carbs) Total net carbs = 24 (12 pieces would be 2.0 net carb each, 10 pieces would be 2.4 each).
          • This is Fantastic💞🙌🏻 Glenda can I get your last name so I can mention you pleaaaasee 😘
          • Glenda Correll
          • Will work on this tomorrow 🙌🏻
  3. I am a sucker for anything sweet and this is a guilt-free recipe...Perfect!
  4. I can't wait to make this deliciousness...way to go Hilda
