Enjoy a rich and creamy ketogenic fudge textured with crunchy walnut pieces the next time you’re feeling like something sweet and chocolately.
Cacao paste is the chocolate base of choice in this sugar-free fudge recipe. It is called “paste” but comes in little bricks or pieces like unsweetened bakers chocolate.
Cacao paste is 100% cacao, made entirely from the cacao bean that has been pressed into a mold. It includes a natural mixture of both the cacao powder and cacao butter.

I make chocolate two ways.
- With cacao paste (see recipe below)
- With a mixture of cacao powder and cacao butter (see Sugar-Free Chocolate Bites with Reishi and Shilajit and Nutrient-Dense Low-Carb Mint Chocolate Bar)
Each technique serves its purpose. Cacao paste is easy to work with and very straight forward, just melt it down and add whatever flavorings you like. Using butter and powder as separate ingredients gives you greater control over the ratio of chocolate flavor to fat. If you prefer a very dark, rich chocolate, you may prefer to use the individual materials.
