Keto White Chocolate Fudge made low carb, sugar free and dairy free!
White Chocolate Fudge
White snow. Pretty, soft, clean.
I've been longing to see it yet it hasn't appeared this winter here in New England. We will get it soon enough I'm sure. When I haven't seen snow since last winter I miss it and can not wait to have it return just in time for a white Christmas.
Though as soon as the holidays are over and the New Year has begun I'm all set with it and wish it would go away. Unfortunately that doesn't happen until around March sometimes.
So I guess you could say this recipe came from the desire to see something beautifully white and clean. How did I end up with fudge? I've always wanted to work on a sugar free white chocolate fudge recipe. And recently I made a white chocolate candy bar that also had been on my foodie to do list for some time.
Low Carb White Chocolate
Making white chocolate sugar free was not easy and I attempted it quite a few times with failures before getting it just right. The same experience has resulted with this fudge. Using cacao butter can be difficult, at least for me it's been a challenge. Add something it doesn't like once melted and you've got an oily, uncooperative mess on your hands.
I've had to change around the amounts of coconut butter and cacao butter since my youngest really dislikes the flavor of coconut. The emphasis here is the white chocolate flavor and less coconut. So even if your not a fan of coconut like my little man you won't notice it much at all. The creamy, irresistibly soft texture will win you over in one bite!
The third time I made it I thought it just melted in your mouth so beautifully that maybe the texture should be firmer. I remember exactly what my oldest teen said, "MOM stop! This is Perfect!"
The picky hubby was won over as well. He's pretty vocal about aftertastes and makes sure to let me know if he notices anything he doesn't like in my desserts. With this, he made sure to tell me there was no aftertaste with the stevia at all. Hallelujah!
Pillows of white fluffy snow. That's what I see when I look at them. And I love them. You will love them too.
This recipe is perfection my friends. 🙂

- I would not change a thing to this recipe. I would not substitute this recipe in any way. Why? Because it is absolutely perfect as it is. The only one thing I will say is, if you don't have coconut liquid stevia then use vanilla liquid stevia or plain. I would not use powdered. I would not use Swerve here. This fudge is so completely smooth it melts in you mouth.
- These can stay on the counter and will not get too soft. They were perfect. I've even frozen them and thawed them and they were still perfect.
I don't have stevia but I have monk fruit from Lakanto. Anyone make this recipe with something other than stevia?
How long does it last?
refrigerated for up to a week
This fudge was indeed creamy and delicious, even after freezing. I made a batch for my daughter to share at work, and her colleagues on low carb/keto wanted the recipe, which she happily shared.
Just made this today, and it turned out really nice! I can't use Jay Robb's egg protein powder because the Xylitol it's sweetened with gives me severe bubble gut. I subbed the exact same amount of plain egg white protein powder, and added extra vanilla and powdered Lakanto to make up for the sweetener and vanilla in the Jay Robb. It turned out very smooth and delicious. I tasted the mix before and after I added the Lakanto, and didn't notice any texture change. I think the key is that I used powdered sweetener, not the regular stuff. So for all the stevia haters, or any others like me that can't do Xylitol, that might be a good option.
I made this it’s awesome I don’t tast the stevia it’s sweet and a little on the soft side but no biggie
Will any type of vanilla protein powder work for this recipe? My family has egg allergies. Thanks kindly.
I'm sorry I've only tested the recipe with Jay Robbs vanilla protein powder, however most whey protein powders could be used here.
Bonjour! J'ai utilisé la poudre de protéine Isopure sans saveur. J.ai réfrigéré 4 heures et le lait de coco contrairement au reste était resté liquide. J.'ai mis le tout au congélo pour la nuit, je verrai demain. Par contre, c'est délicieux, vraiment délicieux

Just tried to make this last night and when I added the egg white protein powder, it curdled instantly. Tried to mix it but the lumps would not go away. What did I do wrong?
