Low Carb Chocolate Cheese Fudge

Share

I got this low carb chocolate cheese fudge recipe from an old low carb magazine. The original recipe called for Splenda and Sweet ‘n Low. I am trying to stay away from artificial sweeteners so I modified the recipe to use erythritol and stevia. Splenda will also result in an odd taste when used to sweeten chocolate.

I thought this fudge came out too soft. However, I think this could be worked into a really good hot fudge sauce because the warm mixture was really tasty and reminded me of a thick chocolate ice cream topping. I will keep looking for a good sugar free fudge recipe that is firmer than this one. This fudge tastes great, but it tends to melt in your hand when eating. Perhaps adding a bit of natural protein powder or whole milk powder would firm things up.

    Xylitol should work fine here. I use erythritol because it is the only sugar alcohol that doesn’t give me the typical side effects.

    For the stevia, I use the NOW brand stevia extract powder which is pure stevioside with no additives.

    I have to admit that I liked the fudge more the longer it sat in the refrigerator. I think I tried to cut it too soon after it was made.

    This looks very good. I used to be low carb and it worked well for me but then it stopped working. Don’t know why. Now I eat Low Fat quite a bit and it works now. Didn’t for years.

    Anyway, a question – does xylitol also work here? I still have quite a bit left in my cabinet and don’t know what to do with it. I thought I would try this with it. Also, I use Stevia powder (real thing, not Truvia which has Stevia and a fake sugar in it) so how much of it would I use?

    Debbie – I’m so glad you like the site. I also struggled with low carb in the beginning because of my sweet tooth. I don’t think there are enough good low carb recipe sites on the web which is one of the reasons I started this blog. I hope you enjoy the fudge as much as I did. It tastes like a rich chocolate cheesecake without the crust.
