Keto Hershey's Chocolate Cake

Are you missing Hershey’s chocolate cake recipe? You know the one that’s in the back of the Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa box? Well, this Low Carb Hershey’s Chocolate Cake is a low carb keto update of the original. 

So here’s the thing, I love chocolate. See there I admit it. What’s more I love Hershey’s chocolate, specifically when used in baked goods. So naturally there will be times I will crave it, even while on a low carb keto plan.

Usually, when I find myself craving chocolate it’s an indicator that my magnesium levels may be a little low.

So I make sure I take some magnesium and then proceed to the kitchen to find some chocolate. It’s pretty incredible how our body can tell us what we need if we learn to tune in.

Converting Classic Recipes Into Low Carb Options

By now you know this girl is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and try to convert an old favorite into a healthier low carb version.

You may not know this about me but I get bored easily with foods. In fact, it’s probably why I find myself coming up with new low carb keto recipes frequently.

Had it not been the case, this low carb Hershey’s chocolate cake would not have been birthed.

I guess that’s good for my family and anyone who follows this blog. Variety is something that has always compelled me to create in the kitchen. I will never understand how some people choose to eat the same foods over and over.

This low carb Hershey’s chocolate cake recipe was created after I found myself really wanting a slice of that Famous Hershey’s Chocolate Cake.

I used to make that classic recipe on the box of the cocoa powder on a pretty regular basis and could do so with my eyes closed.

However, there is no way that today I would eat anything that is sugar-laden or has grains. A cheat of that nature would be a major setback for me.

So the regular Hershey’s chocolate cake was out of the question. Enter low carb Hershey’s chocolate cake, a healthy alternative.

A Healthy Hershey’s Chocolate Cake

I am thrilled to report that my low carb Hershey’s chocolate cake is a great alternative to the original recipe. It is just as rich tasting and easy to make. Having the ability to enjoy a classic chocolate cake without the worry of it causing you to slip is a major win in my book.


So if you are a fan of the Hershey’s chocolate cake recipe on the back of the cocoa powder, please do yourself a favor and consider making this healthier low carb version.

I am sure you are going to love this low carb Hershey’s chocolate cake and make it often.

Favorite Keto Tip

Experience the power of ketones with keto//OS

Are you looking for a way to jump-start your low carb keto journey?

Can I share with you the number one tip our Fittoserve Group Community Group is using and seeing consistent results with? The use of Pruvit’s exogenous ketones. Keto//OS is the first therapeutic ketone supplement.

Prüvit’s Keto//OS allows you to drink your ketones and put’s you into a state of ketosis in under 59 minutes.

Until now to get into a state of ketosis required days, perhaps weeks of very strict keto dieting.

However, with the ability to now drink ketones you can see the results you want to accomplish consistently. Quickly, you can experience what it feels to be in ketosis.

Why is ketosis the goal? Because once you are in ketosis you don’t have as many cravings and your appetite diminishes significantly. In addition, you have more energy and focus helping you to stay committed to the plan.

In the long run, having a tool like this makes the lifestyle easier.  Meanwhile, I invite you to read more about the benefits of ketosis and how to get into this state quicker.

  1. Looks like a great recipe :-)

  2. I'm going to try it

  3. Yum! In winter, chocolate cake really does hit the spot. But I am intrigued about the relationship between magnesium and chocolate cravings - I had no idea!

  4. Do you know the carb count?

  5. Cheryl M Doll
    I am seriously allergic to milk, cream, soft and hard cheeses, etc., but I can eat butter thank goodness (not enough milk in there to bother me). But whipping cream is definitely not a part of the equation for me. So, have you by any chance tried subbing coconut milk for the (water + whipping cream)?
