HOW TO MAKE EASY SUGAR FREE FUDGE
You need just 5 main ingredients to make this delicious sugar free fudge.
Low Carb Confectioners sweetener
Pure Vanilla extract
Optional: vanilla liquid stevia and chopped walnuts
Add the chocolate chips and butter to a double boiler or you can use a bowl over a small pot of boiling water and cook over low heat until melted.
Stir in confectioners, cream, vanilla extract and salt until smooth. Remove from heat.
Taste and decide if you need more sweetness. Stir in optional walnuts if using.
Spread batter into a parchment lined loaf pan.
Refrigerate 30 minutes. This fudge does not need to stay refrigerated. In fact, it's softer if you leave it out on the counter in an airtight container.
SUGAR FREE DARK CHOCOLATE VS MILK CHOCOLATE CHIPS
Lily's sugar free chocolate chips is my favorite brand for sugar free chocolate. It tastes great and melts just like traditional chocolate chips with sugar.
The sweetener used is stevia and erythritol so there really isn't an aftertaste. Other sugar free chocolate chips using artificial sweeteners can really cause a lot of digestive issues in the gut.
I've made this sugar free fudge using both Lily's milk chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips and there is definitely a difference in texture.
The milk chocolate chips will provide a softer, smooth texture while the dark chocolate chips will provide a deep rich chocolate flavor but will not be as soft in texture, more dense.
Either will work in this recipe it is really your preference.

Need very low heat yet the chocolate seized up on me. 😔Is there any way to save the fudge?
Would the measure be the same if I use Lankanto Monkfruit instead of Swerve?

How much is 1 stick of butter?
1/2 cup or 113 grams

Is there a reason to use coconut milk instead of coconut cream which would be thicker like the heavy cream?
If you shake the canned coconut milk before using, yes that would be a good option. But I've made this with just a carton of fresh coconut milk and that works as well. Either is fine.
Why is cooking time 2 hours? It really takes that long?
Thank you for all your recipes!
What can I use instead of the chocolate chips? I can’t find sugar free ones around here. I love your recipes thanks for sharing them with us.
Dark chocolate chips will work as well, just try to find some with a high amount of cocoa so it should have less added sugar and lower carbs.
Walmart carries Lilly's sugar-free chocolate chips. They can also be ordered online. Hope that is helpful.
