Low Carb Chocolate Walnut & Peanut Butter Fudge. One of the things a diabetic misses (and there are lots of things) is a good creamy fudge. Well, you need wait no longer. This is as good as it gets and you can eat several pieces without any guilt what-so-ever.
About 12-15 years ago I realized fudge was far better made with heavy cream rather than milk and up until the diabetes thing it was the best fudge ever and now this is. I really can’t tell any difference.
The first time I tried making this I used too much heavy cream (gasp) and we could only eat it with a spoon (another gasp) so I reduced the cream and voila-to die for fudge and how cool is this…you don’t have to beat it forever.
As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

- Being the kitchen scientist I am I tried this with almond butter but I have to say…not as good.
