VALENTINE'S DAY CHOCOLATE FUDGE, LC, GF

Need a great low carb treat idea for someone special for Valentine's day?  This is a simple recipe for fudge.  Using my sweetened condensed milk substitute, this came out very rich, chocolatey and wonderful!  It is not a hard fudge.  It's soft and has to be refrigerated, but it's fudge, trust me!  And it tastes like fudge.

I made this in a heart shaped cake pan, and used parchment paper in the bottom thinking I could scrape around the edges after it chilled and turn it out on a plate, but that did not work.  So skip the parchment paper if you're wanting to do that.  It would have been better to line my pan with saran wrap perhaps, and then be able to lift it out.  But it was nice in the pan.  It still tasted great!

Decorate yours with some low carb icing to write on it that romantic message to your low carbing loved one you want to impress.




VALENTINE'S DAY CHOCOLATE FUDGE


Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute (for 1-14 oz. can)
2  cans Nestle Table Cream (Nestle Media Crema-Mexican section of Walmart)
1/2 cup xylitol or powdered erythritol (granular will make it come out grainy)
12 packets Truvia

3  squares  unsweetened baking chocolate -- (3 oz)
1/4 cup  coconut oil
8 drops  liquid sucralose -- (to equal 1/4 cup Splenda Granular) (optional, for greater sweetness)
1 teaspoon  vanilla extract

Spray 8 x 8-inch square pan (or heart shaped cake pan) with non-stick cooking spray.

In a medium heavy sauce pan, mix sweetened condensed milk substitute, unsweetened chocolate, coconut oil, and liquid sucralose, if using (if you want it sweeter).  Stir constantly and bring to boil.  Stir in vanilla. Turn heat to simmer and stir for 1 minute more until smooth, creamy, and thick.

Pour into pan and cool.  Refrigerate.  It should be completely chilled before eating. This is a soft fudge.  Store in refrigerator.

  2. Thank you, we had this on Valentine's Day. It tasted divine, but hubby prefers it "harder". But I don't know enough to know how to do that!

    But like I said, the taste was wonderful, so much like the "real thing". And it would definitely make a most excellent hot fudge topping!

  3. Yeah, I'm not sure how I'd make it harder. It does taste like the real thing doesn't it? I suppose you could stick it in the freezer for your hubby, lol. I don't know. Yes, it would make a great hot fudge! I thought of that also when I was licking the pan. Ha ha.

  4. In your Valentine's day fudge is it reall 1/2cup xylitol and additional 12 packets of Truvia? What can I use instead of Truvia?

    1. Truvia is a combination of erythritol and stevia, so you could use any sweetener that is that type of combo. I only have made it with these combos so I couldn't tell you how it would turn out with something such as sucralose. Sorry! I use Truvia a lot because for me it is much cheaper than buying erythritol onine plus shipping, or Swerve or some of the other combos which measure cup for cup with sugar. It's what's readily available for me.
