Third time is the charm on this one. How could a recipe that you have been making since childhood mess up royally twice in a row. Beats me, that’s for sure. But I did it, so it’s definitely possible!

My grandparents started making this fudge recipe when it was on the back of the old Hershey’s Cocoa containers – back when they were metal. It was, and still is, one of the most coveted things around my family during Christmas time because that’s when everyone generally made it. Why do we have to segregate this delicious fudge to December? I don’t know, so I’m putting a stop to that right now.

The Hershey’s container had the recipe listed for Old Fashioned Chocolate Fudge, if I recall the stories correctly. I barely remember using cocoa out of a metal container when I was reeeeally small. Anyways, over the years through my grandparents, my mom’s and of course my experiments, we have made quite a lot of versions of this fudge – chocolate, chocolate coconut, chocolate walnut or event plain peanut butter with no chocolate in it just to name a few popular ones. But hands down the number one best version was chocolate peanut butter. None of the other types come even close.

Before, I said “third time is the charm”. I made a batch of this exact fudge around Christmas with almond milk (because I buy that more often than regular milk). Um, yeah, don’t do that. It came out like a shiny, crumbly candy brick that took 4 days to harden then almost broke your teeth. Yeah that was a fun experiment. So, almond milk – out.

The next time I made it was for this post. I figured I have made throughout my life about a hundred times perfectly, so what can possibly go wrong this time. Well…. I have come to the conclusion it was one of two things or more likely, both. One. Make sure you cook it to soft ball stage at 230 degrees. I think I got a bit excited and it was a few degrees off… or more than a few. Two. Use the good old creamy peanut butter you put on your kids sandwiches. I used natural peanut butter and I think there is just too much oil in it to get the fudge to set right.

So needless to say I ended up with a candy brick for the second time. It was softer almost like thick frosting though, so probably edible but I had to try again. So bear that in mind when you make this – follow the directions!! And don’t get overly excited…

Third time it came out perfect. Yay! Exactly the way I remember it. It literally melts in your mouth when you take a bite and has almost a delicate taste to it. I realize how weird “delicate” sounds when you are talking about very strong flavors like chocolate and peanut butter, but trust me, it works.

The texture might be a bit drier than you are used to in a modern day fudge recipe, but keep in mind this is old fashioned and not made with corn syrup or anything gross like that. You know the ones that require you to go for a dental check up when you are done eating them?

I am probably going to be prodded to make this more often throughout the year since it is one of Juliet’s favorite treats. The few pieces I gave her did not last to bring to school in her lunch the next day. I also brought some to the ladies at work to take the excess off my hands so I wouldn’t eat it all (because trust me I would), and now they want more.

Oh yeah, and I have two tips for you on this one. Get everything prepped and ready before you start cooking, it moves really fast at the end. In fact, a cooking buddy is a HUGE help. Thank you Bradley! Also, when I say in the recipe “large spoonfuls of peanut butter”, I mean it. Get one of those large eating spoons (no, not a serving spoon, lets not be ridiculous), and scoop as much as you can on it, until you think it can’t hold anymore… that’s one scoop.

This Low Carb Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge has about 2 net carbs per slice and is the perfect keto and diabetic-friendly dessert!

How to make chocolate peanut butter fudge

My favorite Low Carb Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge only has a handful of ingredients and takes only a few minutes to prepare! I have always loved fudge. It is usually a treat that I associate with the holidays, but let’s be honest, you do not need a special occasion to enjoy a nice creamy slice of fudge!

One of the best things about this recipe is that aside from the low carb sugar substitute you do not need any hard to find ingredients. This recipe contains basic pantry staples you probably already have in your kitchen! So what are you waiting for? Let’s get to cooking!

Ingredients Needed for Low Carb Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge

  • Butter
  • Keto Friendly Sweetener: Brown Sugar Swerve or Brown Sugar Monkfruit
  • Peanut Butter
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Optional: vanilla extract and sea salt

How do you make low carb fudge?

  1. Heat a medium size sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter and add brown sugar, stir continuously until sugar dissolves and it begins to simmer and a thick brown caramel begins to form. This usually takes 6-8 minutes for me. (see video below)
  2. When the sauce is thickened and looks like caramel remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract (if using) until melted.
  3. Spoon out 1/2 cup of the peanut butter fudge mixture and set aside.
  4. Stir in the cocoa powder in the remaining fudge mixture.
  5. Line a loaf pan with wax paper and carefully pour the chocolate fudge into the pan, then top with the peanut butter fudge and swirl.
  6. Freeze 30 minutes or until completely set. Peel the wax paper away from the fudge and slice. I slice the loaf into three long skinny rows, then slice the long rows into 7 chunk size pieces.
  7. Top with sea salt as desired.

How do you store fudge?

This fudge can be stored in the refrigerator or the freezer. It does begin to soften and melt if you leave it out room temperature, so avoid that.

Is this fudge keto friendly?

Certainly! At about 2 net carbs per slice this is a great keto snack. This could also be called a keto fat bomb. A ketogenic diet is a low carb, high fat diet. When on keto your primary energy source is fat, so people often add fat bombs to their diet to meet their quota or add a little boost. Fat bombs can be sweet or savory they must be low in carbs and high in fat.

What are some other low carb recipes?

If you are looking for sweet or savory I have quite a few favorites that will fit your low carb lifestyle. One of my favorite easy dinners is this Tuscan Chicken. It is a one pan recipe that is loaded with tender chicken, asparagus and a creamy parmesan sauce. This dish also happens to be less than 3 net carbs per serving! Some other favorites include:

How to make chocolate peanut butter fudge

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS?

CHOCOLATE

The chocolate in the recipe can be anything from a dairy free milk chocolate to a 90% dark chocolate depending on your taste. Bear in mind, that the only sweetness in this recipe comes from the chocolate that you use, so if you do use a bitter chocolate the end result will be much less sweet.

COCONUT MILK

This adds creaminess and richness to the fudge, it also helps to work as a setting agent as it solidifies when chilled.

VANILLA BEAN PASTE

Fudge just wouldn’t be fudge without a bit of vanilla in it right? I like to use vanilla bean paste as it’s basically just whole vanilla bean ground into a paste, but feel free to use vanilla extract, or a vanilla bean in it’s place if you prefer.

PEANUT BUTTER

The star of the recipe, the quality of the peanut butter you use in this recipe will determine how tasty the end result is. Be sure to go for a peanut butter that’s 100% peanuts and doesn’t contain any added sugars or oils.

CREAMED COCONUT

Also known as coconut butter, this ingredients basically consists of ground coconut flesh that’s been churned into a butter. It has a high fat content, so makes a perfect base for fudge recipes, giving texture with a little “bite” to it.

How to make chocolate peanut butter fudge

HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE

To start, prepare your baking tin by lining the bottom and sides with parchment paper. I used a 7 x 11″ pan, but an 8 x 8″ will work too, just make sure it has a height of at least 1-2 inches.

Make the chocolate fudge by adding the coconut milk, vanilla bean paste and creamed coconut to a saucepan and bringing to a simmer on a medium heat. Once hot, remove the saucepan from the heat and add in the chocolate. Whisk well until all of the chocolate has melted and the mixture is silky smooth. Transfer the mixture to a clean bowl and set aside.

For the peanut butter fudge, the peanut butter and remaining creamed coconut to a heat resistant bowl and place on a double boiler over a low heat. Stir the mixture and allow it to gently melt for a few minutes. Stir well to combine.

Carefully remove the bowl from the double boiler and allow it to cool for a couple of minutes. Next take the bowl of peanut butter mixture in one hand and the bowl of chocolate mixture in the other and pour them into the lined pan simultaneously to create a marbled effect. You can use a fork to create a marbled effect on the surface of the fudge.

Transfer the fudge to the freezer to set for a minimum of 2 hours. Once set, remove the fudge from the pan and cut into serving pieces. Store any unused fudge in an airtight container in your freezer, or in your fridge for a softer fudge.
