I know there is a lot of chocolate fudge recipes out there. But here's why I love this Easy Keto Chocolate Fudge so much:
- It's intensely chocolatey thanks to the use of melted chocolate.
- Beautifully moist and fudgy
- Wonderful flavor. It honestly tastes of chocolate, which, as odd as it sounds, is rarer than you might think.
- Everyone goes mad over this chocolate Fudge.
- 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 cup Low Carb Chocolate Chips - Lily’s is my favorite brand
- 2 Tablespoons of Butter (I use Salted)
- 1/3 cup Erythritol Powdered or Granular – It doesn’t matter (I prefer Swerve)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 cup Chopped Nuts
HOW TO MAKE KETO-FRIENDLY SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK
This keto and low-carb liquid gold are super easy and delicious.
- Use a medium pan over medium heat, and mix the Heavy Whipping Cream, Erythritol, Butter, and Vanilla Extract, often stirring for around 15 minutes until a slightly browned, thick sweetened condensed milk forms. Be sure to really scrape the sides and incorporate them well.
- Then remove it from the heat and let it cool down for 15 minutes before stirring in the delicious chocolate chips.
- Then, once the chocolate chips are totally melted, pour the mixture into a parchment-lined loaf pan and top it with some pecans before cooling in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Enjoy!
IF YOU MAKE THIS RECIPE AND REALLY CAN’T FIND LOW CARB CHOCOLATE CHIPS/BARS?
I added 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder to the completely cooled (IMPORTANT) sweetened condensed milk and put it in the refrigerator to set. It tasted different, but I think it still turned out good.
Also, if you make this with cocoa powder, be aware that you'll end up with less fudge because there's less mass than chocolate chips being added to the sweetened condensed milk. You can use unsweetened cocoa powder, and it turned out pretty tasty.
Add 1/3 cup to the cooled sweetened condensed milk. It wasn't too sweet, but you can taste as you go and add some extra erythritol if you think it needs it.
Doing it that way will make a smaller amount, but the carbs will also be lower. And omitting the nuts will bring the carbs down as well.
