Low carb peanut butter fudge can be whipped up fairly quickly. What you need to remember is that it takes 2 hours to set in the fridge. You can’t whip it up before dinner to eat it directly after. Always keep those 2 hours in mind when you want to make it.
Before you begin doing anything, take your cream cheese and butter out of the fridge. They need to be room temperature to whip up light and fluffy. I like to take them out of the package or at the bare minimum, open the package so they can get the chill out faster.
Get out two 9×9 bakers or your large sheet pan. If you can fit your large sheet pan in the fridge then use it. The smaller pans will work as well. Place wax paper in the bottom then spray with cooking spray. This enables the fudge to come right out.
Blend the cream cheese, peanut butter, and butter in the stand mixer until smooth or about 5 minutes. Slowly add the vanilla, peanut flour, and sweeteners. Keep blending until well mixed. At this point, you should taste it just to be sure it’s delicious. Prepare to have kids fighting over the mixing paddle.
Spread the mixture into the sheet pan or bakers. Chill in fridge for 2 hours or until completely set. Once set, remove from fridge and take out using wax paper. Place on cutting board to cut into 1 inch squares.Print
