Low-carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge is a great dessert! It's healthy enough to eat for a snack, yet decadent enough to put in holiday treat baskets for Christmas and Hanukkah.
I love fudge, I do. The only trouble with it is that most fudge is so sweet I usually feel sick to my stomach after eating it. That's not the case with this low-carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge. This easy dessert recipe is made with 5 ingredients! All you need to whip up a batch is chocolate, peanut butter, xylitol, vanilla, and salt.
I used to make fudge every Thanksgiving and Christmas, back when I was in grade school. During the holidays, I would pack it up in cute little boxes, tie them with ribbons and give them out to all of our family friends. I loved experimenting with different types of fudge, and peanut butter fudge was one of my favorites!
My low-carb fudge recipe was inspired by this Peanut Butter Fudge by Laura Dolson. When I saw it I knew I could have my fudge and eat it too! While her recipe uses close to 2 cups of sugar alternatives, in my version I have reduced this to only 2 tablespoons of xylitol. I think this recipe could work also with agave, honey or any other number of sweeteners, if you are willing to take the time to experiment.
