Healthy Low-Carb Christmas Dessert

I’ve been whipping up fudge since I was a girl when I lived in Davis, California. Back then I made homemade Christmas candies, placed them in Chinese food containers, and tied ’em up with pretty ribbons. My parents drove me around town to our friends’ houses, where I dropped off my homemade holiday gifts.

Easy Low-Carb Dessert Recipe

While this low-carb fudge recipe is a fantastic Christmas treat, it’s so good that we make it all year long! A great time-saving recipe, you can whip up a batch of 3-Ingredient Fudge in a couple of minutes. Better yet? There’s very little clean up with this one pot recipe.

What is Vanilla Powder?

The organic vanilla powder in this fudge is a pure product that is simply vanilla seeds scraped out of the pod, and it perfumes the fudge with a special aromatic flavor. If you can’t get your hands on the vanilla powder, grab a couple vanilla beans instead. For best results, use the chocolate linked in this recipe. Like the vanilla powder, it’s highlighted in green text in the ingredients. Use chocolate that is at least 70% cacao or the fudge will not set up properly.

The Best Low-Carb Fudge Recipe

Another tip for this incredible low-carb fudge recipe? When I make it, I let the flaps of the parchment paper hang over the sides of the dish. This creates a little hammock so that it is super easy to remove the fudge.

  1. Hi Elana, made this fudge today. It’s delicious but don’t want to harden in the fridge. Should I just freeze it?

    • Brigi, thanks for your comment! This will set up in the fridge if you give it the specified time and use full fat coconut milk and the dark chocolate, if you switched out ingredients you may need to make changes :-)

  2. Hi! I tried the link for the chocolate chips, but it wasn’t working. Concerned about purchasing ordinary chocolate chips due to sugar content. Thanks!
