Sugar-Free Chocolate Fudge Sauce
This is simply the best, low carb, sugar free chocolate fudge sauce ever! It is easy to make, tastes incredible and is ready in 5 minutes!
I have a very long checklist of meals and recipes that I want to make…like everyone, right? And one of the recipes that I have wanted to try (for like a year now) is Chocolate Fudge Sauce! Even though, I am not the biggest chocolate lover, my husband and kids are extreme chocoholics and I knew this would be a winner.
However, what I didn’t expect was..I ADORED it! Oh my gosh, I could not stop tasting it and being amazed by its rich, decadent taste AND smooth & silky texture. This is the first chocolate recipe that I have fallen IN LOVE with!
This recipe requires the simplest ingredients, most of which are in your cupboard and refrigerator! All you need is:
Xylitol – I have only tried this recipe with “xylitol” and it resulted in perfection. But, if you do not have xylitol on hand, give this recipe a go with your favorite granulated sweetener and let me know how it turns out!
Cocoa powder – I mentioned “good-quality” in my ingredients list, because there are so many cocoa powders out there that lack the rich, “chocolate” flavor that is necessary in this sauce. Trust me, spending an extra dollar or two on a good-quality cocoa powder, really is worth it!
Heavy Cream – You never know when a recipe calls for heavy cream…but if you are keto, then you can guarantee tons of them will! Therefore, I always have at least two large cartons on hand…yes, we do go through A LOT of cream!
Unsweetened Almond Milk – This is another classic ingredient in our house. Always make sure you opt for the “unsweetened” variety since those hidden sugars really add to the carb count!
Butter – Everything is better with butter (so my grandpa used to say)…and I couldn’t agree with him more! Make sure your butter is cold and cubed, before you start making this recipe, because you need to add it relatively quickly.
Vanilla Extract & Salt – Make sure you don’t miss out on these two ingredients. They make a world of difference in chocolate recipes. Just note that a little, goes a long way!
Ok, since discovering my love for Chocolate Fudge Sauce (not just because it only takes 5-minutes to make), I have realized it’s great on pretty much everything! It is perfect for:
- Ice Cream
- Milkshake AND
- By the spoonful…seriously you guys, you HAVE to do it!
After this heavenly sauce has been made (in practically no time at all) and cooled down for 2/3 minutes, it’s good to serve! However, if you want to make it ahead of time, simply follow the instructions as directed, but transfer it to an air-tight container to cool down completely. Once room temperature, seal it and refrigerate for up to 10 days!
Side Note: This sauce thickens as it cools down (try it, because it kinda tastes like truffles – yum) but, in order for it to become silky again, reheat it in the microwave in 15-second increments, until melted!
