You are going to LOVE this recipe for low carb peanut butter fudge! 🙂
I first made this recipe on Valentine’s Day in my heart-shaped candy mold, which is great for anniversaries too – or any lovey dovey celebration. You can also use an ice tray, or any candy mold to “set” this no-bake super quick fudge.
* The brown candy mold in the photo above is a basic square candy mold.
Warning: This low carb fudge does not last in my house. Even with carb / sugar eaters! Tip: make it at 3am – and eat it in the closet, very quietly.
This is a very healthy fudge recipe. If you know me at all, you already know I like to keep it simple – and this recipe is no exception. But in addition to being super easy, and fast to make, it also has very few ingredients – and they’re all good for you! 🙂
Note: To lower your carb count per serving, use 1/2 cup coconut oil and 1/2 cup peanut butter. The recipe above, including the optional sugar free vanilla syrup, is my personal preference – but feel free to experiment with this recipe. It’s very forgiving!
Put the peanut butter in a nice sized bowl. Add the vanilla extract and any additional flavoring or ingredients you want to add. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave, then pour it over the peanut butter and stir it all together until smooth. Microwave the mixture to make it easier to stir until smooth, if needed.
Pour smooth mixture into your mold:
Because I prefer to spend as little time in the kitchen as humanly possible (lol) I mix my fudge right in the microwave-save measuring cup. It makes it easy to pour it into your mold, and makes for quicker cleanup by using fewer dishes.
Place the fudge in the refrigerator until it sets up.
Once it has “set” it will pop out of the mold easily.
It’s ideal to keep them refrigerated, as they will melt quickly.
Note: Silicone baking molds are great! They are oven & dishwasher safe, but they are also very flexible. I recommend that you put a baking sheet under your mold before you pour in your mixture so you can easily move it from the counter to the refrigerator to set up.
Your nutrition facts and macros will vary depending on the ingredients you use, and the size of your individual fudge pieces. For my low carb fudge in the heart-shaped mold, which are larger hearts, that mold made 15 large hearts.
The nutrition facts shown here (1 Net Carb Each) are for the 1/2 cup peanut butter & 1/2 cup coconut oil version, spread over 15 large heart-shaped candies.
Tip: Use the Recipe Calculator in MyFitnessPal anytime you create a recipe, to get accurate macros and carb count. This is the easiest way to get accurate nutrition facts, give you may use different brands and/or ingredients – or a different sized candy mold for your own low carb peanut butter fudge.
As I mentioned, it’s a very EASY but also very versatile recipe. So feel free to experiment with it a bit and see what you come up with! It’s almost impossible for it NOT to be melt-in-your-mouth delicious. 🙂
This fudge recipe is healthy AND super low carb, so you can enjoy it guilt-free!
