Everybody loves this 3-Ingredient Fudge. An all-time favorite during the holidays, it's a wonderful low-carb dessert recipe for Christmas and Valentine's day. No more drowning in sugary candy made with high-fructose corn syrup and other mystery ingredients.

Low-Carb 3-Ingredient Fudge

This fudge has only 3 ingredients –dark chocolate, coconut milk, and vanilla powder. With around 10 grams of carbs per serving, this low-carb fudge is a perfect bite of sweetness when you're craving something wholesome, yet indulgent.

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.

    I bought 2 Fudge Hearts at a wellknown Restarant in the Woodmill Centre in Stellenbosch for my husband an myself.

    • Holly, thanks for your comment! If you refer to step 3 in the instructions portion of the recipe you’ll find out how to keep it from sticking to the pan. So glad to hear this is OMG so good!

  3. These are amazing! And so easy to make. Many, many thanks to you Elana. Wishing you 2019 filled with many blessings.

  4. I have noticed the addition of cane sugar in your newer recipes, example chocolate in your fudge. Can you explain why? I have one of your cookbooks and would like to order the others, but I can’t have processed sugar. Thank you for your wonderful recipes.
