Grinch Low Carb Fudge Treats

Easy Grinch Low Carb Fudge Recipe

I love eating my kids’ snacks. And that’s dangerous when I’m on keto. Kid’s treats – especially during holidays – are nothing but sugary carb-filled danger zones. So I set out to create my own versions. And they turned out even better than any store-bought ones I’ve tried.

This low carb fudge recipe makes the perfect DIY gift idea for almost anyone. Give it as a teacher’s gift, or share it with a bus driver or share with some co-workers. Since it is both gluten-free and keto-friendly, almost anyone can eat it. It’s nut-free but does have dairy.

If you want to give this fudge as a gift, pack them in a holiday fudge tin and wrap it with a bow.

You can make it Grinch-themed by putting the fudge in a green tin and tying it with a red ribbon. Don’t forget a heart as the tag (his heart grew, after all!).

What’s In It:

The entire recipe is at the bottom of the post. But here’s what you need from the store to make your fudge.

How to Make It

There are only a few simple steps and then you’ll have the most memorable and cutest low-carb fudge ever.

1. Mix together heavy cream, Pyure*, butter, and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat.  This will create a thick sauce.

2. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips.

3. Pour into a baking pan and refrigerate. Let it chill for about 20 minutes, if not longer.

4. Create the mint layer.  Mix together the cream cheese, Pyure*, heavy cream, and mint extract.

5. Add green food coloring.  Mix it up until it’s the color you want.

6. Spread over the refrigerated chocolate layer. There will now be two layers, a chocolate one and a green mint one.

7. Refrigerate for another hour. Let this set in the fridge for at least an hour or more.

1 1/2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream

Sugar Free Sprinkles

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Line an 8×8 square baking pan with parchment paper.

6. For the mint layer, add cream cheese, Pyure*, heavy cream and mint extract to a medium-size mixing bowl. Beat until smooth.

7. Add green food coloring (I used about 10 drops) and beat until incorporated.

8. Spread over the refrigerated chocolate layer evenly, making sure to get into the corners.

9. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before cutting and adding hearts.

Notes:
* I used Pyure Organic Confectioners Stevia Blend in this recipe as it is my preferred sweetener. If you would like to use another sweetener, use the equivalent of 1/2 cup sugar in the chocolate layer and 1/4 cup sugar in the mint layer.

** I purchased my edible heart at Michaels Craft Store (easy low carb sprinkles above).
