This low carb fudge works out to a very familiar and comforting fudgey texture, and yet it’s relatively high in protein (definitely high in fat) and has only as many carbs as come from whatever sweetener you choose to use, plus a few from peanut butter. Definitely a “manageable indulgence” for the ultra-low-carb part of Carb Nite or Carb Back-Loading.
Molly’s version calls for xylitol, peanut butter, cream cheese, butter, and vanilla protein powder. You can check out the full recipe on her website, which she emphasizes wasn’t her recipe to start with (here’s the original), but as far as I’m concerned, she’s my low-carb angel of mercy today and gets the spotlight.
Me, I’m going to play around and come up with a version of my own… maybe almond butter… maybe chocolate hazelnut… so many possibilities.
