This easy keto fudge recipe requires less than 5 minutes of prep, and it’s truly decadent and creamy. Four ingredients and five minutes sound too good to be true, right? 

With a caramel-like texture, this chocolate fudge is often served for the holidays or as a sweet treat for any occasion. In addition, it can be prepared with children, being a fun activity for the whole family.

I’m a huge chocolate lover, and I’m always craving my keto chocolate cake, this keto coconut flour cake or a delicious mug cake, keto chocolate mousse, and this keto fudge.

So, if you crave sweets often, make sure to have a batch of these keto fudge ready in the refrigerator.

Is Fudge Keto-Friendly?

No, the traditional fudge recipe is not keto-friendly since it’s made with milk, sugar, and condensed milk, making fudge super high in carbohydrates.

But fortunately, by making a few changes to the ingredients, you can make a delicious keto fudge that contains fewer carbs than regular and taste exactly the same.

Keto Fudge Ingredients

You will need only 4 ingredients that you probably have already in your kitchen to make this easy keto fudge recipe. Here is everything you will need:

  • Butter – use unsalted butter at room temperature so it will melt quicker. You can also use salted butter to complement the richness of this chocolate dessert.
  • Sweetener – make sure to use powdered sweetener to combine well into the mixture. My favorite keto sweeteners are Monk Fruit, Erythritol, or Allulose. Stevia is not a great option here.
  • Dark Chocolate Chips – use unsweetened dark chocolate chips or just chop an 85% chocolate bar. Lily’s chocolate chips are almost zero net carbs, and I use them super often in keto desserts.
  • Almond Milk 

How To Make Keto Fudge?

  1. Melt the butter and chocolate until smooth and creamy.
  2. Once the chocolate and butter are melted, add the sweetener and milk and mix until well combined.
  3. Pour the mixture into a small loaf pan lined with parchment paper and refrigerate it for at least one hour.
  4. Once the keto fudge is set, cut it into squares and store it in the fridge.

Tips and Variations 

Making your keto fudge at home is fun and easy, and you can customize the recipe in many ways. For example, you can use this basic keto fudge recipe for the fudge and add a handful of favorite nuts, fruits, or coconut flakes.

  • Mix in 1/2 cup of your favorite chopped nuts for some extra crunch.
  • Cut the fudge into cubes and wrap each in baking paper. Twist the ends, and you have delicious homemade candies!
  • Check the chocolate while it is melting in the microwave and stir from time to time to prevent burning.
  • Mint extract is a great addition.
  • Sprinkle some sea salt flakes that pair perfectly with this chocolate dessert.

Storing Ideas

  • Fridge: These keto fudge squares can be stored for roughly four weeks in the fridge in a sealed container.
  • Freezer: You can also freeze the keto fudge. Wrap the squares in plastic wrap, place them into a freezer bag, and freeze for up to two months. Once ready to eat them, thaw the fudge squares on the counter to room temperature.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Should I Cover My Keto Fudge While It Sets?

Covering the keto fudge while it sets in the fridge is unnecessary, but once it is hardened and cut into squares, ensure that you wrap it in plastic foil, so the flavor and texture don’t change.

  • Can I Make This Recipe Dairy-Free?

You can make dairy-free keto fudge by replacing the butter with coconut oil.

Do you think this will work with heavy cream? I don’t keep almond milk, it goes bad before I can use it and I hate to waste.
Thanks, Peggy

Sure, Peggy.You can use heavy cream instead of almond milk.
