Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

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.

  1. This recipe is easy to make and fabulous. I left out the sugar totally and didn’t miss it–there was some sugar in the chocolate and peanut butter. I love your recipes!!!

    • I adore this fudge! So easy to make.

      Elana, you have made my ‘restrictive’ (diet-wise) life so much better with your recipes – every one I try is always amazing! I use honey in this one, as another commenter suggested – just because I love honey :) Anyway, thank you, Elana! (Your Books are amazing too – I have them of course).

      • Christine, thanks for letting me know you adore this fudge! And so happy to hear you are enjoying my books :-)
