Buttery Chocolate Keto Fudge Squares

I’m not much of a sweet tooth, but I do love me some fudge. When I set out to make a fudge, it was important to me that it was creamy and melted in your mouth. That’s pretty much the definition of fudge, right? I hope you enjoy! It’s about 1.2 net carbs per bite, and makes about 16 bites.

But it’s not without whole food sacrifices. It does use sugar-free maple syrup (Carey’s) and sugar-free vanilla syrup (Torani). If this is cool with you, it’ll be your go-to chocolate dish for pairing with wine, or bringing as dessert to your next dinner party — I have to wonder if anybody would even know it’s a keto fudge! It’s so rich and chocolately, I think that’s in part due to the Baker’s Chocolate and all the wonderful butter.

@JoAnnCheeks It's clarified butter. Basically, you simmer butter until the whey/lactose separates and then strain it through a cheese cloth. It's concentrated butter fat, and a lot more solid when cold. It's great for cooking eggs, or sauteeing veggies. I sometimes like to melt a little into my tea if I'm not in the mood for butter or coconut oil.

@amia1013 @JoAnnCheeks What she said. :) You can find it on Amazon (I like Tin Star Foods brand, or in the ethnic section of your grocery store usually with the Indian food.) It cooks and stores like an oil, and is usually lactose-free.

Recipe looks awesome, can't wait to try it! But all I can find for the Carey's syrup is regular pancake syrup flavor, which is more like Mrs. Butterworth's than maple syrup. Is that the one you are using, or do they actually make a maple syrup flavor as well?

@dixiejean  I have bought pure maple syrup.  It comes in a glass bottle.  I think it comes from the tree and I suppose goes through a process of some sort.

@dixiejean You could try a different sugar-free syrup as long as it's low in carbs (some are super high even though they're sugar free). I think mine says maple-flavored. I don't know if I've ever seen a "real" maple syrup that's truly sugar free and low carb.
