Jenny's Story

My husband is diabetic and I am pre-diabetic so we are trying to cut all of the sugar out of our diets. I have been trying various sugar free fudge recipes for years and none of them have come close to the real thing. I thought "real" homemade fudge would be something I'd have to give up, until I took some time experimenting and created this recipe.

It tastes so good, no one will ever suspect it is completely sugar free.

Ingredients

1/4 c
cold water
2/3 c
dry milk powder
2/3 c
splenda
2 Tbsp
butter
1 pkg
sugar free hershey's chocolate chips (9 oz)
1 tsp
vanilla
1/2 c
nuts (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine the water and dry milk in a medium saucepan. Stir til smooth. Add the Splenda and butter and heat on stove on medium heat stirring constantly. Stir til butter is melted and mixture is warm but not boiling. Remove from heat.
2
Stir chocolate chips and vanilla until chips are melted and mixture is smooth and glossy. (1 1/2 Cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips can be substituted if you can't find the Hershey's sugar free ones.)
3
Fold in nuts. Pour onto wax paper and refrigerate until firm. (1-2 hours)

Well done. Taste almost like the good ol' Christmas fudge. I just have one question. Mine was slightly gritty but I think maybe I need to mix the powdered milk differently. Any suggestions anyone how to make the powdered milk and water smoother. I also live at 5,000 ft altitude. Thanks :)

Well "C Wood" It could possibly be because bakers chocolate is unsweetened; whereas Sugar Free Chocolate chips contain Malitol. You can find Sugar Free Chocolate chips easily at any Wal-Mart baking section. Hope this helps.

I made this today, but it came out gritty even after lengthy stirring. Any suggestions.

I don't know what I did wrong, but mine turned out disgusting. It was dry and not sweet at all. The only thing I changed was I used bakers chocolate instead of the sugar free chocolate chips. It's so hard to find sugar free chocolate chips (or diabetic chocolate chips for that matter - though I have found them on amazon for an arm and a leg).
