Who doesn’t love fudge, especially this time of year when the holidays are fast approaching? This Keto Cacao Nib Mint Fudge is perfectly sweet and festive without the typical sugar rush and crash.

This fudge is also a great source of healthy fats from almond butter and coconut oil. It’s very filling and provides a great energy boost, especially with the added dark chocolate!

Your recipes are great!!! Just wanted to confirm that the almond butter you recommend for this recipe is also salt-free. Thanks for all you do!

Thank you for your kind words!

    Is there away to incorporate cocoa butter so that it is more stable at room temperature

Hi Lynda, yes, you can partially or fully substitute the coconut oil with cocoa butter. To make it room temperature stable, I'd fully substitute coconut oil with cocoa butter.

It says to put everything except the chocolate - looks like a step has been missed?

Hi Lindsay, it is "except the cacao nibs" (not chocolate) - the chocolate is melted and the cacao nibs are aded in step 4. I hope this helps!

Hey Martina,
Would you happen to be planning an instant pot recipe book?

Hi Jasmine, I haven't planned any book for next year yet. There will be another book (Beginner's Keto Cookbook + guide) in spring 2018. I think I do need a break after writing 5 books 😊

Can you make this without the nutbutter? Just leave it out, or does it contribute to the body of the fudge?

I wouldn't leave it out as it makes it creamy. You could use coconut butter or any seed butter if you are avoiding nuts. I hope this helps!

"Nutritional values (per serving, 1 piece)"
What is the weight of one piece?

That will be the total weight divided by 12 (I did not weigh is but it can easily be calculated).

That fudge looks so delicious!
