Ingredients and Substitutes
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for sugar-free fudge, what each ingredient does in the recipe, and substitution options.For measurements, see recipe card below.
- butter – I used grass fed, but any unsalted variety will do.You can also use butter or coconut oil Keep this keto fudge recipe dairy free, but the taste and texture will be a little different.
- Besti Powdered Monk Fruit Allulose Blend – Perfectly sweet and soft fudge!I do not recommend other sugar substitute Here, because anything with erythritol (including most brands of monk fruit and stevia) doesn’t dissolve well and leads to a rough texture. Regular allulose is the only other that might work, but most brands are too coarse – grinding it into a powder in a food processor may work – and you have to use 33% more.
- cocoa powder – Find the best kind as it will give the chocolate flavor in the fudge.
- vanilla extract – Use high-quality herbs for the best taste.
- sea salt – Balanced sweetness.
- Sugar Free Chocolate Chips – Although optional, they provide a firmer texture to low carb fudge recipes, so I recommend adding them to make them easier to eat. You can use any flavored chocolate chips you like, just make sure they are sugar-free.
- coarse sea salt – optional for amazing toppings.

Tips for the Best Keto Chocolate Fudge
Now that you know the secret to how to make keto fudge recipes with cocoa powder, here are some tips to answer some questions you may have…
- Do not melt butter. This is the most important tip! If you melt the fat, the sweetener and cocoa will sink to the bottom and the end result will be disastrous.
- Mix on low speed. Only let it run long enough for it to mix together. If the speed is too high, air bubbles will be created.
- Use powdered sweeteners. Don’t use liquid sweeteners — the fudge won’t set. Do not use concentrated pure powders such as pure stevia or monk fruit – it will turn bitter with the chocolate. Do not use granulated sweetener – it will be granulated.
- Use an appropriately sized container. you don’t have to use I made the same container, but don’t use too large a value. You may need a smaller size than you think.
- Arrange pans. Once the fondant has set, it is nearly impossible to remove it from the bottom of the unlined pan. Line it with parchment paper first, making sure the sides hang free so you can easily remove it from the container.
- Cut correctly. Using a large chef’s knife, cut straight down. Don’t seesaw as it will shatter. To avoid sticking, keep the knife under water between cuts and wipe it off with a paper towel before making the next cut. If you find that the fondant starts to crumble when you cut into it, even using a straight down motion, then it’s probably too cold.
Sugar Free Fudge Variations
- shop: Store fondant in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Avoid leaving this cocoa powder fudge recipe at room temperature for too long as it melts easily.
- freeze: Store individual cubes in a freezer safe container for up to 6 months. Enjoy right out of the fridge, or return to the fridge just before serving.
top notch idea
Keto fudge recipes are easy to customize with toppings! Here are some of my favorites.
- flaky sea salt – Sprinkle a little before chilling for the perfect salty-sweet taste.
- chopped nuts – While walnuts or pecans are a classic pairing, use any keto nuts you like it. For those who don’t eat nuts, pumpkin or sunflower seeds can easily add the same crunch as nuts!
- Sugar Free Caramel – Get the perfect sweetness and candy bar taste. It will be runny at room temperature, but if you eat fudge from the fridge it will harden.
- melted peanut butter – use a Natural Peanut Butter Keep it low carb. Like caramel, this will be firmer and best out of the fridge.
- sugar free sprinkles – A colorful twist!
