Sweet, indulgent fudge that’s gluten-free, dairy-free, low carb, and SUGAR-FREE?!? Can it be?? Yes indeed, with this healthy holiday fudge recipe! Cacao butter and raw cashews give it the creamy, luscious texture of a traditional fudge. But, using a low carb fiber syrup means this treat has NO added sugars (depending on the kind of chocolate chips you use, of course). And, if you use dairy-free chocolate chips, this healthy fudge is vegan!
1/2 tsp butter extract
8 oz cacao butter
1/2 tsp dark chocolate chips
3/4 cup low carb fiber syrup
1 cup raw cashews soaked (about an hour) & drained
In a food processor or blender, blend soaked cashews, fiber syrup, vanilla paste, and butter extract.
In a double boiler, melt cacao butter.
Add blended mixture into melted cacao butter over heat and whisk to combine.
Remove from heat and whisk to be sure there are no chunks.
Transfer to loaf pan lined with foil. Sprinkle on chocolate chips.
Freeze 4-6 hours or overnight, until firm. Remove from freezer and slice into cubes with a sharp knife.
Serve and enjoy!
Will melt at room temperature, so store in an air-tight container in the freezer! Lasts 1-2 months in the freezer.
