Sometimes you just need a hot fudge sundae, and now you can have it without sacrificing your low carb diet! This keto hot fudge sauce recipe is so impressively easy, it’s ready in just 10 minutes and be easily reheated. It never crystallizes!
I first started playing around with a keto hot fudge sauce several months ago. At first I tried making a thin ganache with dark chocolate, but it separated easily when reheated.
I remembered that my grandma used to make a hot fudge sauce, so I went through the recipes of hers I have and found a good starting point.
Keto Hot Fudge
This recipe is so simple to make it comes together really quickly.
All you need for this recipe is butter, allulose, cocoa, salt, and vanilla.
I opted for allulose as the sweetener here because it doesn’t crystallize at all and reheats nicely without compromising texture in any way.
Allulose is more expensive than many other low carb sweeteners, but there are a few applications for which I think it’s worth using.
Bring all the ingredients (minus vanilla, plus a little water) together, and bring to a boil. Boil for a minute and a half and throw in the vanilla extract. That’s it! Seriously!
It’s so nice and shiny and smooth.
This recipe yields just over a cup. It’ll fill an 8 oz. mason jar to the very tippy top.
This hot fudge sauce is perfect over your favorite low carb ice cream for a super easy dessert.

But my favorite thing to do with this fudge sauce is to make a hot fudge peanut ice cream parfait, like what I used to get at Dairy Queen back in my carb-eating days. *drool*
