This low carb chocolate fudge is perfect for satisfying a craving for a sweet snack!
Sometimes it’s good to have something rich, sweet and chocolatey. It can be just what you need as a little pick-me-up, or a sweet treat to end a meal. In all my time low carbing I’ve never lost my sweet tooth and never stopped craving chocolate. That would be why I wrote a book about low carb chocolate recipes, I guess!
This chocolate fudge is really rich and quite intense – a little goes a long way which is obviously a good thing!
To make the fudge, add almond milk, heavy cream, sweetener and coconut oil to a saucepan. Sweetener-wise I have tried both xylitol and granulated Swerve, and although both taste great, Swerve has a higher carb count so I’d recommend using xylitol if you can. I’ve given nutritional data for both options in the main recipe.
Keep the heat low, and stir every now and then. Once the chocolate has started to melt, turn off the heat. Keep stirring until everything has mixed together. Pour into a square baking dish lined with baking parchment. If any oil has pooled on the surface then blot this away with a piece of kitchen paper. Let cool, then transfer to the fridge.
Once the fudge has set, remove from the dish and peel off the parchment paper. Cut into 16 squares – and one of these squares is all you need as this fudge is very rich! Store it in the fridge until required.
