Most fudge has scads and scads of sugar – usually multiple kinds: confectioner’s sugar, evaporated milk, milk chocolate, brown sugar, granulated sugar… most recipes have at least 2 types.

Here’s a refreshingly simple recipe for fudge that only has a bit of honey, instead of tons of sugar. I’ve adapted it from the recipe here.


Low-Sugar Chocolate Fudge

In your stand mixer, or with an electric hand mixer (whisk attachment), combine:

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons honey, or however much you think you need.
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut cream concentrate

At first it might seem like it’s not going to come together, but just keep mixing on high speed until everything is combined. It’ll look like a rich chocolate dough.

Scoop the dough out onto a piece of waxed paper, fold the paper over the dough, and press to form a sort of patty. Refrigerate or freeze until firm, then cut into pieces to enjoy.

This recipe made 9 small (rich) pieces.

My husband and I both really enjoyed this fudge. It’s almost like eating a dark chocolate truffle. Mmm.

    Wow we just made this with candy cane added. For a cup of cocoa (4 x batch), we used 4 T rapadura instead of any honey, & 7 mini candy canes which we blended altogether in the blender. We also topped the fudge with some more crushed mini candy canes. I think we will be giving this out for Christmas!

    So far I have tried several of the recipes they a re to die for. I have tried the new York peppermint patties, granola bars. They are great.

    I made this today and it was delicious! I used coconut milk because I didn’t have any concentrate. Thanks for sharing!

    YUM! My daughter and I just sampled this right after I mixed it together. YUMMY! We both enjoyed it. I could see somehow making this into a fudge frosting! I added a few drops of vanilla creme stevia and thought it balanced the flavor better. THANK you for a wonderful recipe!

    This fudge is very tasty because it is not too sweet. I remember my grandmother sometimes made similar candies, and we, children, liked them very much.
