Low Carb 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.
By now you may have figured out that creating new keto flavor profiles excite me.
Have I piqued your curiosity ? Great! Before I share my low carb keto 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.
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. But those days are safely in my past now.
This however, doesn’t mean I stopped enjoying the sweet and salty combo.
I was missing those days when I came up with this low carb keto bacon fudge. It appears it was a good thing because I 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.
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 clean up a breeze.
No Oven Required Keto Treat
Not needing an oven for a keto dessert may however, prove to be another challenge. Since you may find yourself enjoying this keto fudge often.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Now the question I have for you is if you will be daring enough to try.
If you do make sure you stop by and let me know what you think.
