A while back I was craving some fudge and although I cook a lot, this particular day I was feeling sorta lazy and I didn't want to fix anything that required a lot of time!
I was looking for something simple because I didn't want to prepare any type of complex recipe… I just wanted something chocolatey and yummy!
Basically what I wanted was instant gratification! LOL
I looked in the fridge and pantry to see what ingredients I had so I could figure out what I'd be able to make and then I went on a search to find an easy recipe to make!
I remembered seeing one recipe for a low carb chocolate fudge that was made with chocolate, cream cheese and about 10 other ingredients!
When I saw that this recipe didn't require any cooking and that it would take me less than 20 minutes to make and then all I had to do what pop it in the fridge – I was sold!
So against my will, I had to go to the store and purchase most of the ingredients to make the recipe.
But like some of the other low carb or keto fudge recipes I'd tried in the past, this particular recipe was disappointing and while the recipe had some potential let's just say it was too busy and the taste… well let's just say that it left a lot to be desired!
That's when I begin to tinker with the original recipe and playing around with the measurements and ingredients.
I wanted something that would be yummy and delicious yet simple to make and didn't have a lot of ingredients!
Something that was sweet and chocolatey but that wouldn't require me to have actual chocolate to make it because that stuff never stays around long in my house!
The end result was this creamy, fat filled fudge that could be made in less than 10 minutes and then refrigerated for a little to get that full fudge effect!
Since then, this low carb walnut fudge recipe has become a favorite of my family and friends and apparently thousands of others who have tried it, shared it and made it too!
And if you're ever running low on energy and/or carbs then this low carb walnut fudge will work as a great pick me up with only 1 net carb per serving and 14 grams of fat – it can also double as a fat bomb!
As I said, I’ve made a lot of different fudge recipes that are low carbs but none compare to this!
Using cream cheese gives you a texture that is very similar to the sugary, high carb sugar fudges of yesterday!
And using Lakanto Granulated Sweetener makes it taste just like the real deal!
Now making this fudge is super easy.
See how easy that was? I hope that you and your family enjoy it as much as me and my family do!
