Chocolate Fudge Fat Bombs
I grew up with some very finicky fudge recipes that I could never get quite right or accept as a “good for you” treat. Anything with a candy thermometer and I think it’s a science project not a recipe. Marshmallow creme didn’t seem like a real food and was too weird to buy. Then, once corn syrup entered the scene… forget about it, that’s way too sweet!
Imagine my struggle trying to find a suitable keto alternative! How can I make my Aunt’s family famous fudge without the sugar?
Well, many thanks to the Spruce Eats for the inspiration behind this recipe. I love conjuring up a festive feeling with a treat that crosses traditional fudge with nutella.
If anyone doesn’t know, nutella is a sweet hazelnut cocoa spread, kind of like chocolate peanut butter.
This high-fat treat is perfect for the holidays, so nibble away as you plan your keto Christmas dinner recipes. However, once you try it, don’t be surprised if you’re making this fudge all year long.
Nutella fat bombs have healthy fats with a winning flavor combo that will appeal to everyone. From kids to adults, keto or not, there is sure victory with this recipe!
How to Make Nutella Keto Fat Bombs
Gather just six ingredients and you’re already halfway to making perfect keto fudge with hazelnuts!
Cacao paste – raw cacao paste is my preference, but you can also substitute with baker’s chocolate.
Butter – grass-fed butter whenever possible! The butter gives it the consistency that you want to sink your teeth into.
Keto sweetener – I use powdered Monkfruit Sweetener to add a sweetness without any carbs (or calories!). Powdered sweetener works best for keto fat bombs because it blends perfectly smooth while granular sweeteners tend to leave a gritty texture.

Heavy whipping cream – fold in the cream and watch the fudge take on a beautiful milk chocolate color.
Vanilla extract – fill your kitchen filled with the heavenly aroma of vanilla when you add it the melting cacao and butter.
Hazelnuts – are essential for the “Nutella” flavor! They also provide that bit of crunch to this festive fudge.
Not to be redundant, but this recipe is the bomb! It is a simple melt, mix, and set method that is easy to make in minutes and oh so decadent. It will store well in the fridge or freezer so you can meal prep a batch once and have many servings made ahead of time for the whole week.
Begin by melting the chocolate with the butter in a small saucepan or a DIY double boiler over low heat. Remove from the heat once the chocolate and butter have melded together into a hot fudge consistency.
Next, fold in sweetener, cream, and vanilla.
Last but not least, add in the hazelnuts. Pretty simple right?
Line an 8×8-inch dish with parchment paper and pour the melted chocolate mixture into the dish.
Then, chill in the freezer for an hour or until firm.
Finally, pull up the parchment paper and place it flat on the counter. Use a sharp knife and cut fudge into 24 pieces (4 long columns x 6 short rows). If the chocolate sticks to the knife, dip the knife in warm water between slices.
Store in the fridge or freezer. You can make the fudge an hour or a week before and store in an airtight container the freezer before serving.
Chocolate Keto Fat Bombs FAQ
You might be asking these common queries if you’re new to making sugar-free desserts or don’t have much experience with keto fudge. Let me help!
No, not if you want to stay in ketosis. Nutella is high in sugar and contains too many low-quality ingredients like vegetable oil and chemical preservatives to recommend for a keto diet.
One tablespoon of Nutella contains 12 grams total carbs! Skip the commercial stuff and make something even better.
