Taking a walk down memory lane, I’ve been whipping up homemade fudge since I was a girl, when I made homemade Christmas candies, placed them in Chinese food containers, and tied ’em up with pretty ribbons. My parents drove me to our friends’ homes to drop off my homemade holiday gifts.

What is Vanilla Powder?
The organic vanilla powder in this dairy-free fudge recipe is a pure product that is simply vanilla seeds scraped out of the pod. It perfumes this 3-Ingredient Low-Carb Fudge recipe 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 the highlighted text in the ingredients section of the recipe. 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 healthy low-carb christmas dessert? 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.
When is Fudge Ready to Cut?
I’m often asked, when is this fudge ready to cut? It should be firm and well set before you stick a knife in it. If it feels soft to the touch it needs to be chilled longer.
What is the Easiest Way to Cut Fudge?
The easiest way to cut fudge is with a sharp knife that you’ve run under warm water. Dry the knife and then it will glide through the fudge.
How Do You Store Fudge?
I store 3-Ingredient Low-Carb Fudge in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to one week stored this way. If it lasts that long!
