I always make fudge during the holidays for gifting. I love that it can be made ahead of time and stores well. This year I was determined to make a low carb and keto-friendly fudge that is as easy to make as my traditional fudge recipes.

I tried out a few keto fudge recipes but most of them require you to make a low carb condensed milk first. It’s not too hard to make your own condensed milk, but I don’t like having to do that extra step, especially when I am pressed for time.

Instead of condensed milk, this fudge uses almond butter to provide the fudgy, chewy texture.

Taste and Texture

This fudge tastes like chocolate and nuts. The texture is chewy and fudgy, just like traditional fudge.

I used Lily’s chocolate chips for the chocolate which is my favorite low carb chocolate as it tastes just like regular chocolate to me. My family ate this fudge and couldn’t even tell it was low carb!

Ingredients

To make this fudge, all you need are:

  • almond butter
  • sugar-free chocolate chips

Why this Recipe Works

Many fudge recipes start with condensed milk to create the chewy, fudgy base. Almond butter has a very similar consistency to condensed milk. When combined with the chocolate, the chocolate firms up the almond butter just enough so that you get a chocolate treat that is fudgy and chewy.

How to Make Keto Fudge

  • The almond butter and chocolate are melted together on the stove until smooth.
  • Then you pour the chocolate batter into an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan and chill in the freezer to set.
  • Let the fudge soften to room temperature before cutting into 1-inch squares and serving.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup creamy natural-style almond butter unsalted and no sugar added
  • 1 ½ cups low carb chocolate chips (I used Lily's)

Instructions

  • Line an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Melt almond butter and chocolate in a double boiler on the stove over medium heat. Stir constantly with a spatula until the mixture is completely smooth and evenly mixed.
  • Pour chocolate mixture into lined loaf pan. Use spatula to smooth out the chocolate and evenly spread it across the loaf pan.
  • Place loaf pan into freezer for about 1 hour or until fudge is set.
  • Once fudge is set, let it soften at room temperature before cutting with a sharp knife. Cut fudge into 1-inch squares. You should have enough for 18 squares. Store uneaten fudge in an airtight container.

Notes

  • Adapted from Beaming Baker
  • I used Lily's keto chocolate chips.* They are sweet enough that no other sugar needs to be added. And I like that they don't leave a cooling sensation like some other low carb sweeteners.
  • If you don't own a double boiler, it is easy to make your own. Use a medium saucepan and a large glass mixing bowl that will sit on top of the saucepan and not touch the bottom. Fill the saucepan with about 1 inch of water, bring to a simmer, and place the large mixing bowl over it. Add ingredients to the mixing bowl.

  1. Is it ok to add nuts

    • I have not tried adding nuts but it should be fine. Keep in mind the fudge already tastes nutty without adding nuts so you may want to limit adding too much or maybe just add them to the top.

  2. What almond butter is the best to use

    • you want to choose a natural-style (the kind you need to mix before using) creamy almond butter without sugar added. I usually use Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s

  3. I just made your keto fudge recipe. it came out great thanks!
    Can they be stored room temp or refrigerated?

  4. I’m using condensed milk instead of the almond butter how much do I need to use?

    • this recipe should be made with almond butter. condensed milk is already sweetened which would make this recipe far too sweet. You would need to use unsweetened chocolate. In addition, it would depend on the condensed milk recipe since there are many keto condensed milk recipes out there that vary in consistency.

  5. I made this on Sunday, 12.29.2019. So delicious! I used crunchy almond butter instead of smooth (loved the nut pieces throughout). I made a half batch, melting the ingredients in a heavy pot on the stove on low heat (no double boiler needed), and put the mix into a 9 cube silicone mold (instant portion control, no cutting necessary). They were ready in 45 minutes. Everyone in the household pronounced them to be excellent, and I will gladly make this recipe again. Thank you!

  6. Best fudge EVER!!!!   You wouldn’t know it’s sugar free unless told so.    I used crunchy almond butter and it was amazing!!!!!   This will be a regular in our home!    Thank you so much for sharing it!
