Keto Bacon Fudge? Before you think I’ve eaten one too many slices of bacon, please stay with me. Although my keto bacon fudge is not your grandma’s fudge, one bite will make any skeptic a believer.

Have I piqued your curiosity? Great! Before I share my low-carb bacon fudge with you, I have a couple of qualifiers to see if this recipe will suit you.
One, do you love bacon? Two, do you love fudge? If you answered yes to both these questions, be prepared to be impressed.

Not only does keto bacon fudge make a great little treat it’s also a fat bomb. You see this isn’t just a creative spin on fudge it’s actually a recipe that will keep your hunger at bay.
Making this low-carb bacon fudge also a fat bomb means that it’s packed with good for your healthy fats and the bacon adds a little protein. What’s not to love?
Keto Bacon Fudge
Keto bacon fudge is packed with good for you nutrition such as protein, good fats.
Coming up with a recipe with this combination of flavors may seem odd, but not for this girl. You see I’ve always loved to combine foods that are sweet with those that are salty.
Back in my high-carb former life, I would dip my fries in ice cream like it was as popular as combining peanut butter and jelly. Dunking my fries in ice cream always garnered a glare or two but that never stopped me.
Those days are safely in my past now. But what hasn’t changed is my salty-sweet taste preference. Something about this combo always seems to satisfy a craving.
The addition of reserved bacon grease takes this keto fudge to the next level. It just adds so much flavor and makes it super creamy.
I was missing those days when I came up with this low-carb keto bacon fudge. It appears it was a good thing because my little experiment of combining bacon with chocolate received high marks from those who tasted it.
My non-bakers will love this treat because no oven is required. That’s right so stop saying you can’t make keto treats because you can’t back. Because this girl has you covered.
Not only is this low-carb keto bacon fudge delicious, but you can create a batch in under 15 minutes. Even less than this if you have your bacon already pre-cooked.
If you don’t already cook your bacon ahead of time you should really consider doing so. It will make prepping for your keto meals that much easier.
Personally, I love cooking my bacon in large batches in the oven because it makes cleaning up a breeze. But if you’re short on time you can also use a pre-cooked bacon option.
Keto Bacon Fudge Fat Bombs
If you are doing a ketogenic diet and still have considered adding fat bombs to your diet for fear of fat, rest assured.
You see when doing a keto diet you use fat as fuel instead of glucose, sugar. It also means that your diet is up to 75% fat for this same reason.
By adding more healthy fats into your diet and reducing your carbs you naturally raise your ketone levels. A treat like this keto bacon fudge acts as a fat bomb and can assist you on your keto diet.
Making sure your healthy fat ratio is higher, helps you be satiated longer. Fat bombs can also give you a boost of energy and give your brain the healthy fats it craves. Who doesn’t want more energy?
Your Brain Needs Fat
Most people don’t realize that a ketogenic diet can offer more than just weight management benefits. In fact, being in ketosis has neuroprotective properties.
This is why you shouldn’t ignore essential fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6, both of which are crucial for brain health and function.
Do you know that most of our brain tissue is made up of fatty acids? This is why it only makes sense to include more recipes that embrace fat.
