easy keto nut fudge


A super quick recipe for instant low carb, high fat nourishment, this easy keto nut fudge won’t disappoint.

I was never a fan of fudge. Until now. After tasting these, I am now a fudge convert. In fact, I am regretting not discovering keto fudge sooner!

I have no idea why making fudge never appealed to me. Maybe it was because the texture of the shop-bought fudge I had tried before didn’t quite manage to stimulate my senses. Or maybe it was because the simplistic recipes I came across made me somewhat believe that they couldn’t possibly turn out any good. Well, no more. This easy keto nut fudge is so yummy that I shall be making it all the time now.easy keto nut fudge

So why did I make fudge if I wasn’t keen on it in the first place? I hear you ask… Quite simply because I was having a lazy day and there were no desserts anywhere in the house (yes, on occasion I have to hide things if I don’t want them to disappear as soon as my back is turned!). I knew the munch monster would look really disappointed when he got home and found nothing to appease his sweet cravings. So I decided to make something up with whatever was in the fridge and cupboard. The only usable thing in the fridge was an unopened tub of cream cheese that was quickly approaching it’s ‘best by date’. Sponge cake didn’t appeal. Not enough cream cheese for a cheesecake. Brain fog. No idea what to do.

That’s when I looked for cream cheese ideas and came across a recipe for Walnut Keto Fudge by Libby at ditchthecarbs.com. It seemed so quick and simple that I felt inspired to try it. Only thing is, I didn’t have any walnuts, so out came macadamia nuts as a substitute. A few adjustments to Libby’s recipe and I was good to go. I made the easy keto nut fudge in a blink. Literally. The result took me by surprise. Totally delicious. I was hooked. Thank you Libby! And the munch monster was well chuffed when he tried it later.easy keto nut fudge

Easy keto nut fudge can be made using whichever nuts you prefer.

 Macadamia nuts have recently become my firm favourite. I just love their crunchy-on-the-outside + soft-on-the-inside texture. They also taste buttery and sweetish at the same time. But if you prefer almonds, or walnuts, or pecans, that’s absolutely fine. All you have to do is substitute the nuts weight for weight.

There are so many good things about this easy keto nut fudge. It’s quick. It’s fuss-free. There is no baking involved. It uses few ingredients. It’s very high fat and perfectly keto. It’s very chocolatey. It’s very filling. Need any more reasons to make it? No I didn’t think so.easy keto nut fudge

I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Hi, I was wondering if this can be made without the cream cheese and butter and use coconut oil instead?

    • It could work, but the flavour and texture would be different and it will probably be quite oily. I would try with half the amount of butter and cream cheese given in the recipe, and add if necessary.
