OMG LOW CARB FUDGE! OMG OMG OMG!
So I found this recipe from carbsovereasy for low carb fudge, and decided I HAD to try it. Well, it turned out kind of crazy intensely flavored. It was good, but I wanted to see if I could adjust it to be better. And I have to say, this is the best fudge ever! It’s actually more the consistency of ganache than fudge (when cold), but I still really really like it. I plan on making it again.
Ok, so here’s how I altered the recipe.
Low Carb Fudge:
1 stick (1/2 cup) softened butter
3 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup cream
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 packages stevia
3 tbsp xylitol
Mix the sweeteners and the cream until it’s well desolved. Beat the cream with the remaining ingredients until everything is mixed. If you want easy removal, place wax paper into the bottom of a square pan, then spread the mixture into the pan, place plastic wrap over top, and stick in the fridge. You can eat it within about ten minutes.
You can use any sweetener that you’d like, just make sure to taste it along the way to make sure it’s to your liking. Also, if you don’t like the taste of coconut, you can use refined coconut oil which has no taste. I like to use virgin coconut oil because it imparts a light coconutty flavor, and it kind of reminds me of an almond joy. other alternatives is to use more butter in place of the coconut oil, or try peanut butter!
