Refrigerator Nut Fudge

Are you a chocolate lover? Try this sugar free yet decadent-tasting recipe for a lovely, occasional treat, packed with healthy walnuts and a hint of cinnamon.

  • 2 Tablespoons soy flour
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup Diabetisweet
  • 1/2 cup granulated erythritol or maltitol
  • 4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 packets Splenda
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
Refrigerator Nut Fudge Prepare an 8 inch square baking dish by greasing it with butter or spraying it with a butter flavored non-stick spray. Set aside until ready to use.

In a medium sized sauce pan, whisk soy flour with heavy cream until the mixture is smooth. Add the butter, cream cheese, Diabetisweet, erythritol or maltitol, chocolate, and cinnamon.

Place the pan over medium heat until the mixture becomes warm enough for the chocolate and cream cheese to begin to melt. Lower the heat to the lowest possible setting.

Continue melting the ingredients for the fudge, stirring as necessary. When the mixture is melted and smooth, add the vanilla and packets of Splenda. Taste the fudge. If it is not as sweet as you like, adjust the sweetness, by adding sweetener of your choice.

Beat the fudge for a minute or two with a heavy spoon. Add the nuts and thoroughly combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared 8 inch square baking dish. Spread it evenly into the baking dish, using the back of the spoon to smooth the surface. If the surface looks a bit greasy with the melted butter, press a paper towel into the surface to remove the excess.

Cool the dish to room temperature. Refrigerate for several hours or until chilled and firm.

Remove the fudge from the refrigerator. Cut into 1 1/2" squares.

Makes 36 (1 1/2 inch) squares of fudge.   Each square is 3 effective grams of carbohydrate.
