You know what I miss this time of year? Fudge. I especially miss chocolate peanut butter fudge. I of course had to find a way to get my hands on a Keto-version of it, and I’m so glad I did. I created a delectable peanut butter fudge with a dark chocolate layer and I’m going to share it with you! Do you want to know the best part about this fantastic dessert? One—I repeat, one net carb per piece! I can’t see how you can go wrong with that. Let me also add that this is the fastest recipe to put together in a pinch. If you’re running late for a holiday party or even if shark week is on the horizon and you feel your will power fading before you, this is the fastest, most simple and delicious dessert that comes to mind!
So, I know that the holier than thou people of the Keto community cringe and gasp at keto-fying desserts, but what’s the point of living this lifestyle if you can’t love the foods you eat?  So, fear not, I’ve got your back!

Ingredients:
4 ounces of Natural nut butter (I used Skippy Natural Peanut Butter, any nut butter will work fine)
4 ounces or 1/2 cup of butter (salted or unsalted is fine, if you use salted just omit the extra salt)
3/4 cup powdered swerve
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
pinch salt

 

Directions:
Add your butter and peanut butter together in a microwave safe bowl and then microwave it for a minute (or until completely melted)
After your butter mixture is melted, mix it well until smooth
add in vanilla, swerve and salt and mix until there are no visible clumps
in a parchment-lined pan (I used an 8 X 8) pour in your mixture
Evenly spread the mixture on to the bottom of the pan
Place your fudge in the freezer for 15 to 30 minutes or until firm
When your fudge has firmed up, melt about 4 oz of low carb, sugar free chocolate chips in the microwave. I find that 30 second intervals and constant mixing is best to prevent the chocolate from burning
Pour the chocolate mixture on top of the fudge and spread evenly with a spatula
Place your fudge into the freezer for another 20 minutes until completely firm
I cut mine to make 12, but you can cut the pieces smaller if preferred.
After they’re cut into squares, they are ready to enjoy!
