What makes this Homemade Chocolate Fudge Sauce healthy, you may ask?

This recipe is made with healthier ingredients than typical recipes.  Typical hot fudge sauce recipes call for LOTS of white sugar, LOTS of corn syrup, and LOTS of heavy cream.  Store-bought fudge sauce contains dangerously unhealthy ingredients like hydrogenated oils (aka trans fats), high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, and preservatives.  Yuck.

So I swapped out those nasties and replaced them with better-for-you ingredients.  I used evaporated milk to replace the heavy cream, a mixture of dried milk and dutch cocoa to create the richest milk chocolate flavor ever, and combined organic stevia extract with all-natural erythritol to replace the white sugar and corn syrup.

The result?

An ULTRA creamy, healthy Chocolate Fudge Sauce that also happens to be sugar free, low carb, and low fat too!

  4. Is it a bad idea to just grab straw and sip the chocolate? Or is it only socially acceptable if you pour onto something else? … Asking for a friend! haha in all seriousness, this is a great recipe, thank you!
