CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE FUDGE-Sugar-Free & Keto Friendly
4oz Unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
4oz Dairy-free dark chocolate chips or chocolate bar. Chopped
¾ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
8oz cream cheese, room temperature
2 tsp. Vanilla extract
½ tsp. Stevia Select pure stevia
½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts, lightly toasted
Lightly oil a standard size loaf pan before lining it with plastic wrap. Set aside.
Prepare double boiler (or place a large glass bowl over a pot of simmering water). Add all of the chocolate (unsweetened and chips) to double boiler and allow to melt, stirring frequently. Once chocolate is almost melted, carefully remove top of double boiler (containing chocolate) and continue to stir until all of the chocolate is melted. Allow to cool slightly while preparing other ingredients.
In large bowl, blend softened butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add partially cooled chocolate to the butter-cream cheese mixture (chocolate shouldn't be hot) and blend well with hand mixer. Add stevia and vanilla and blend well. Taste for sweetness and adjust if needed. Stir in half of nuts.
Pour the fudge mixture into the lined loaf pan and spread it out evenly (consider hitting the pan on the side of the counter). Top the fudge with the remaining chopped nuts. Refrigerate for at least minutes or longer before cutting into smaller pieces. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
