Today we are sharing a keto chocolate peppermint fudge recipe with only 2 net carbs per serving!
This is an easy low-carb chocolate peppermint fudge recipe with only seven ingredients, and it will only take you 25 minutes to whip up this batch.
No holiday season is complete without keto egg nog, peppermint, and chocolate, am I right?
As much as you may want to deny your sweet tooth during the holiday season, I find it best to be prepared.
When you go to a party or family meal where you know they will be serving desserts, go prepared. Cut yourself a few small squares, or take the entire pan to share with everyone. It’s up to you, but I don’t trust my willpower to get me through the holidays.
I know that when I fail to plan, I plan to fail, and I don’t want to lose a year’s worth of progress because I didn’t prep for the sweetest time of year.
Keto Fudge Recipe Ingredients:
Makes 18 servings
2 Net carbs/serving
1 C. Heavy whipping cream
2 Tbsp. Butter unsalted (you can also use coconut oil)
1/3 C. Swerve confectioners sugar substitute (or low-carb sweetener of choice)
1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. Peppermint extract
1 Tbsp. Cocoa powder
1 C. Lily’s baking chips
Easy Peppermint Fudge Directions:
1. Combine the butter, heavy cream, extracts, Swerve sweetener, and cocoa powder in a saucepan over medium heat on the stove. Whisk to combine all of the ingredients well.
2. Cook down the mixture until it begins to thicken and becomes the consistency of sweetened condensed milk.
3. Remove the mixture from the heat and allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes.
4. Mix the baking chips into the warm mixture until they are completely melted.
5. Pour the fudge mixture into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper, and refrigerate for 3 hours before serving.
6. Using a cutting board and plastic knife, cut into 18 small squares. Top with crushed sugar-free candy canes if desired. (See more tips below)
Store leftover brownies in an airtight container (I keep mine in the fridge). Some people prefer them at room temperature, but I think the best keto peppermint fudge is served cold with steaming hot coffee or keto hot cocoa!
