2tablespoonButter, Non-Dairy Butter, Or Coconut Oil(I recommend coconut oil if using the honey option)
1 ½CupChopped Nuts of Choiceoptional
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees if using nuts.
Spread the nuts in a single layer on a large baking sheet and bake 5 - 8 minutes or until fragrant. Set aside.
Prepare an 8 x 8 inch baking dish by lining with foil (cover 2 edges of pan with enough foil to use as handles and remove fudge from pan) and lightly grease with oil of choice. Set aside.
Bring a small pot of water to a boil. In a large heatproof bowl or pot, add the chocolate chips, coconut cream, honey or keto sweetener, and coconut oil or butter. Place the bowl over the boiling water, being sure the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water.
Stir until everything is completely melted and smooth.
Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla, pinch of salt, and nuts (if using).
Pour into prepared pan and place uncovered in freezer for 1 hour or until set.
Remove fudge from pan by using the foil as handles and cut with a very sharp knife into 1 inch squares. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
Nutrition info uses the keto options and includes pecans.
For the coconut cream, place full-fat canned coconut milk in the fridge for 24 hours. I recommend Thai Kitchen, Native Forest, or Sprouts brands. Other brands may not separate as well or leave an aftertaste.
If you're not dairy-free or vegan, feel free to use heavy whipping cream instead of coconut cream.
For the keto sweetener, I prefer Powdered Erythritol Sweetener With Monk Fruit Blend. It's keto-friendly and tastes remarkably like traditional powdered sugar! However, any erythritol-based powdered keto sweetener will work. I don't recommend granulated sweeteners because they will make the fudge grainy. You *can* use powdered allulose (if using pure allulose add an additional tablespoon or two) or a powdered allulose/monk fruit blend, but the fudge will be really soft.

I like to use ChocZero Chocolate Chips, which are keto AND paleo-friendly, but you can choose any chocolate chips that you prefer that work best for your diet. I also love these Paleo Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips, but they are not keto-friendly. Whichever you choose, just be sure they are high-quality chocolate chips that you like the taste of! The taste of the fudge largely depends on the taste of the chocolate chips.
Tastes vary, so taste the batter andadd more keto sweetener on step 5 if desired. Do not add more honey, as it will make the fudge too soft. If you are using honey and want the fudge to be sweeter, add a few drops of liquid vanilla stevia to taste.
