These fun (and oh-so-rich & melt-in-your-mouth delicious!!) Low Carb Peanut Butter Fudge Hearts are a revision of the coconut oil candy recipe I shared with you a few days ago. They are super easy to make, very few ingredients, no “cooking” required, and you can whip up a big batch in a few short minutes! 😀
I used all four ingredients in mine today, and they turned out amazingly fabulous! My candy mold made 15 large “fudge hearts” so the 1 1/2 teaspoon of sugar free syrup was very little artificial sweetener spread across all 15 pieces of candy. You could easily use a packet or two of Splenda, or your favorite sweetener instead. (Sweeten to taste!)
Directions: Put the peanut butter in a nice sized bowl. Add the vanilla extract and any additional sugar free sweetener you want to add. Melt your coconut oil in the microwave, then pour it over the peanut butter and stir it all together until smooth. Pour into your candy mold:
NOTE: These silicone baking molds are oven & dishwasher safe, but they are very flexible. I recommend putting a baking sheet under your mold before you pour your mixture into them, so you can easily move them from the counter to the refrigerator to set up.
Once your candies “set”, you can remove them from the mold and put them in a pretty cloth or parchment paper lined basket, or on a decorative plate.
It’s ideal to keep them refrigerated as they will melt quickly if they get too warm. 😉
As you can see, they come out to ONE net carb each. 😀
They are MELT IN YOUR MOUTH fabulously delicious!
And of course, they are healthy and super low carb, so you can enjoy them guilt-free!
I fed them to two “carb eaters” today, and they both REALLY enjoyed these candies! Unlike most low carb candy, this recipe has very little artificial sweetener (if any – it’s optional!). The little bit of Torani Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup I used didn’t leave an aftertaste, and gave them just enough “sweetness” to boost the flavor nicely.
