52gramscacao/cocoa butter(or 1/4 cup butter or coconut oil)
1/4cupgranulated or powdered sweetener
In a sauce pot on medium/low heat pour in heavy cream
As cream begins to heat up pour in sweetener
Using a whisk give the cream a stir. Cream sould not be boiling or sticking at all. If so the heat is too high.
Gradually add in cocoa powder little by little making sure all powder prior is dissolved before add more. This will avoid lumps of chocolate in fudge.
After chocolate has dissolved remove from heat and allow it to rest about 10 minutes.
At this point add in cacao butter and whisk in to make sure it's fully combined becasue it will want to seperate.
Pour in parchment paper lined pan adn place in refrigerator or freezer for a few hours. The freezer will be quicker but the refridgerator will allow the fudge to set more properly.
What's The Best Fat Source
Coconut oil- If you choose to use coconut oil there will be a coconut taste. Not to mention coconut oil is liquid when heated and solid at room temperature. But unless it's cold, it's not rock hard. So, in turn your fudge may leave residue and melt in you hand.
Butter- Butter is a good option, it will bring a shiny fudge and that amazing flavor butter brings. As you know butter is semi-solid when cold. The fudge will get somewhat hard but not really. And it takes little heat for butter to begin to melt. But, if you want to double these as a frozen treat butter is a great option.
Cacao/cocoa butter- This is the best option to me, but the trickiest. Chocolate has crystals that are disrupted when introduced to heat which is why it has to be tempered. If using cacao butter wait until the very end when the fudge has cooled some then add it in and allow it to melt slowly. When tempered correctly this gives the most shelf stable keto fudge out if the three.
