Here is a low-carb sweet treat that is really simple and easy to make. These Peanut Butter Keto Fudge squares only take about 10 minutes to prepare (or longer if you keep eating the mixture as you go), then pop them in the fridge to set, and you have a perfect treat for the lunchbox or for after school. Make sure you use full fat regular cream cheese in a block for best results, not the spreadable kind.

Omit the peanut butter to make this a 6.6 : 1 Fat Bomb. Finally a fat bomb that doesn’t have coconut oil in it. Yes!!!

You can replace the Peanut Butter with Almond Butter or Trader Joe’s Nut Butter.

*Remember when making keto fudge do not melt the butter or cream cheese in the microwave. Let them soften on the counter for 30 mins to an hour (they need to be soft enough to blend together with a hand mixer) and then you will achieve that rich creamy texture.

  1. Thank you for this recipe, which has saved Christmas for my son. Unfortunate it has me saying “ketooooooo fudge”, like Ralphie from A Christmas Story every time I get him a piece ;).

  2. Hi! This looks soooo good. Can’t wait to try it for my daughter. Two quick questions: how much/what type of sweetener, and how are the pecans used?

  3. Hi Aimee,

    Sorry for the confusion. The first time I made these I used 11g of Truvia for the sweetener, to offset the 11g of Hersey’s Unsweetened Cocoa. But the second time I realized that the peanut butter made it sweet enough. Either way, it won’t effect the ratio much (4.1 : 1 compared to 4.0 : 1) and does make for a good option! I will make that more clear in the ingredients list. And thank you, I forgot the instructions for the pecans, I will add that in now!
