Low Carb Chocolate Walnut & Peanut Butter Fudge

Walnut FudgeOne 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.

    Hello , could you use Swerve?

  • Janet

    Deborah, what peanut butter do you use? Wondering if you use a “stir in the oil” type or something like Jif.

    • Hey Janet,
      I am probably not going to be much help here. I shop my local New Seasons Market here in Portland and they have a whole raw peanuts grinding machine to grind your own and that is what I do.
      My best advice is to buy sugar free peanut butter and it can sometimes be tricky to find. Once Again Organics are good and I do use their tahini. Here is a link to all their products and they do have an organic peanut butter https://www.onceagainnutbutter.com/consumer-product-list and in stores you can buy it by the jar.
      There is another company Wild Friend https://wildfriendsfoods.com/ and they are actually a local PDX company that hit it big time on Shark Tank.
      I don’t know where you are but Wild Friends may be in your local grocery.
      I would never use Jif

        Thanks Deborah, that was exactly the answer I was looking for! Have a great day!
