Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
I love it when people assume that all fudge recipes are difficult to make.
When it comes to easy no bake dessert recipes, fudge has to be the easiest option.
It’s time for fudge to come to light…and it couldn’t be any more fool-proof.
Contrary to popular belief, not all fudge needs to contain dairy or butter. In fact, my healthy keto chocolate fudge recipe is made without condensed milk!
Although most forms of full-fat dairy are suitable for a ketogenic diet, I wanted it different. To keep it vegan and dairy free, we had NO use for it. Not only that, we wanted to share a nut-free option too!
In terms of texture, this keto chocolate fudge is ticking ALL the boxes. It’s smooth, creamy and literally melts in your mouth.
Taste-wise, it has a rich, sweet chocolate flavor and, if you use peanut butter, tastes like a creamy peanut butter cup!
To make this keto chocolate fudge, you literally only need TWO ingredients-
- Keto chocolate chips
- Peanut Butter
KETO CHOCOLATE CHIPS AND ALTERNATIVES
There are several keto-friendly chocolate chips which can be used for this fool-proof chocolate fudge.
I prefer using stevia sweetened chocolate chips, as they contain no artificial sweeteners and melt beautifully. I also don’t mind using a keto chocolate bar, which melts well too. If you can tolerate sucralose, sugar free chocolate chips will also work.
PEANUT BUTTER SUBSTITUTIONS
As someone who LOVES a good peanut butter cup, I enjoy using peanut butter in this recipe. However, I know some people have peanut allergies and to keep this paleo, peanut butter can’t be used.
HOW TO MAKE THIS CHOCOLATE FUDGE NUT-FREE
This recipe can definitely be made 100% nut-free!
TIPS AND TRICKS FOR PERFECT KETO CHOCOLATE FUDGE
You can either use a microwave or small saucepan on the stovetop to combine your chocolate and peanut butter (or alternative). I prefer stovetop, as I can keep an eye on the heat and ensure it doesn’t start boiling. If you use a microwave, heat on a lower wattage and check every 20-30 seconds.
Ensure your nut or seed butter is of the smooth variety, in order to avoid clumps.
Enjoy the fudge at room temperature, but keep it stored in the refrigerator or freezer. If refrigerated, this keto fudge can last for up to 2 months. As it’s freezer friendly too, it will keep fresh for 6 months.
- Line a square pan or loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, combine your chocolate chips and peanut butter and heat until melted. Whisk well to ensure the mixture is fully combined.
- Pour your fudge batter in the lined pan and place in the fridge or freezer until firm. Using a slightly wet knife, slice into pieces.
