How to Make Keto Peanut Butter Fudge
- Prepare your pan. Line a loaf pan with some parchment paper. When making fudge, always use parchment paper to help with clean-up.
- Melt the butter. Over low heat, melt your butter in a small saucepan. Add sweetener until fully dissolved. Remove from the heat once done.
- Add the vanilla extract and peanut butter. Mix well until combined.
- Pour into the pan and refrigerate overnight. I prefer freezing because it’s a little faster but refrigerating overnight works well, too.
- Serve. Slice it up into squares and serve.
Other Keto Fudge Flavors to Try
We already know how wonderful peanut butter and chocolate can be, but here are some other combinations you should definitely try as well. I’ve tried all of these combinations and they’re all fabulous:

- Triple chocolate fudge
- Salted chocolate fudge
How to Store Fudge for Later
I know it can be tempting to gobble up all the fudge in one go, but in case you have some leftovers for later, make sure to store it properly to extend its shelf-life.
Fudge is best stored in individual packaging. My preferred method is cutting it up into squares and then wrapping them in freezer-safe plastic wrap to ensure they don’t get freezer burned.
Do not freeze the entire batch in one large block. Once frozen, fudge becomes a lot harder to slice and manipulate. You don’t want to make a huge mess of it, so be sure to slice it and portion it up before freezing.
