How to make delicious keto fudge

This recipe may look complicated but rest assured that it’s not even close to being complicated. Turns out this is one of the easiest low-carb fudge recipes I’ve made in a while.

Our chocolate walnut fudge is made of 2 distinct layers, as follows:

  • Main Layer – the bottom part of our walnut fudge
  • Top Layer – the chocolate coating with berries that sits on top of the main layer

Here’s how you prepare a wonderfully delicious keto fudge like this one:

Start with the Main Layer

  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and let it cool down on the counter.
  2. Add everything else in a blender, except for the berries. That’s walnuts, melted chocolate, coconut oil, coconut sugar, mint, orange skin and raw cacao.
  3. Blend for 1-2 minutes until you obtain a thick batter.
  4. Pour batter into a small tray and slowly mix in berries.
  5. Transfer in the fridge and let it sit for a few hours to solidify.

Finish with the Top Layer

  1. Slowly melt chocolate in a double boiler using low temperature.
  2. Take our the tray with the Main Layer from the fridge and pour the chocolate paste on top of the first layer.
  3. Decorate with berries and place again in the fridge for a few hours to solidify.
  4. Remove from fridge when solid and cut into squares. DONE!

This chocolate walnut fudge can be upgraded!

What I love most about this kind of recipe is how easy I can adapt it to my own liking, or simply create variations to spice things up in the kitchen.

This walnut fudge may be delicious but can also be boring to use the same recipe over and over again. Let us discuss variations!

There are many ways you can create variations of this simple fudge and here are a few of my ideas:

  • Use other kinds of berries and you’ll be surprised how the flavor will change. Small berries like blueberries, raspberries or sea buckthorn are the best since they will not ruin the delicate texture of this fudge.
  • Use lemon or grapefruit skin instead of orange skin (or skip it all together).
  • Make your own chocolate by using cacao mass and cacao butter instead of store bought chocolate.
  • Use medjool dates instead of coconut sugar and you’ll end-up with a slightly different taste overall.
  • Are you looking for that dark chocolate taste? Skip the coconut sugar or use at least 90% dark chocolate (or even 100% dark chocolate).
  • Replace walnuts with pecans in case you want a bit of variation in terms of flavor and nutrients.

Tips for the perfect chocolate fudge

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – Make sure to use extra virgin coconut oil at room temperature, otherwise you won’t be able to mix all the ingredients in the blender. If you keep the coconut oil in the fridge, simply let it sit on the counter for 1 hour prior to using it in this recipe.

Orange Flavor – Make sure to use the skin from an organically grown orange since conventionally grown oranges (and other citrus fruits) may be sprayed with pesticides. These nasty chemicals (which are link to all sorts of diseases) tend to accumulate into the skin of fruits.

Berries – Our recipe calls for using cranberries in the main layer, but you can successfully use other types of berries. Cranberries will add a rather sour-ish taste which comes to balance the amount of healthy fats. Actually that was the main reasoning behind my using cranberries in this recipe. If you want to use other kinds of berries, stick with small size berries like blueberries or raspberries, since they will not mess-up the texture of your fudge.

Texture – This chocolate walnut fudge has a soft fudgy texture but you can make it more solid if you want. If this is your goal, use a bit more chocolate in the main layer and you should be on the right track. You could also use a bit more coconut oil but, one important aspect to keep in mind when using more coconut oil, is that coconut oil will solidify only in the fridge but will start melting once it reaches room temperature.

Pro Tip: This chocolate walnut fudge can be served as a delicious snack, a tasty recovery meal or a grab and go breakfast. Exercise caution because it’s known to be delicious and healthy.

I hope you’ll love this recipe as much as we did! Don’t forget to share it with someone you love …. Sharing is caring!

  • 75 g dark chocolate (85% cacao, melted)
  • 1 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 1-2 tbsp cranberries

  • 100 g dark chocolate (85% cacao)
  • 1 handful cranberries + blackberries (other berries are fine as well)

Instructions

Main Layer

  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and let it cool down on the counter.
  • Add into a blender all the ingredients for the main layer, except for the berries. That’s melted chocolate, walnuts, extra virgin coconut oil (at room temperature), coconut sugar, mint, orange skin and raw cacao powder.
  • Blend for 1-2 minutes until you obtain a thick batter.
  • Pour batter into a small tray and add in berries. Gently mix using a spatula until the berries have incorporated into the batter.
  • Transfer in the fridge and let it sit for a few hours to solidify.

Top Layer

  • Melt chocolate in a double boiler using low temperature. Take your time, you don’t want to boil the chocolate, instead you want to melt it slowly.
  • When the chocolate has melted set aside for a few minutes to reach room temperature.
  • Remove the tray with the Main Layer from the fridge and pour the melted chocolate over it, making sure to spread it evenly on the entire surface.

Notes

Only use the skin from an organic orange. The skin of conventional grown oranges (and other citrus fruits) is loaded with pesticide residue that you want to AVOID.
More chocolate will solidify this fudge even more, while using less chocolate will keep it more “fudgy”.
