Keto Pfeffernüsse

Have you ever had a Pfeffernüsse? As a special request from my husband, this was my first time making them… And wow, let me just say these are fantastic! They have a lot more zing than gingerbread, making them a bit more of an “adult” cookie that goes great with coffee or something stronger.

Try them out and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Keto Hot Fudge

If you are deciding to indulge in something sweet and chocolatey, why not have it be hot fudge! This is a keto-style hot fudge that is simply the best topping for your low carb ice cream or added to brownies and cakes for the ultimate indulgence!

This is real hot fudge, not chocolate syrup lameness like many other recipes claiming to be your secret low carb chocolate treat. Do not be fooled by weak imitations… Trust the pig!

What you need

5 oz Lily’s chocolate chips

5 oz Dark chocolate unsweetened chips

1/3 cup Dutch cocoa powder

1/3 cup Sweetener Lakanto Monkfruit 1:1 Sugar Substitute (Golden)

3/4 cup Vita FiberVitaFiber IMO Syrup – Prebiotic Fiber Sugar-Free Sweetener

1/3 cup Heavy cream

1/3 cup Water

1 tsp Vanilla

3 tbsp Salted butter


First melt your chocolate chips in a small pot or in the microwave. A stove-top with a double-boiler is the safest way to not burn the chocolate, but you can do it directly over low heat or with the microwave if you are careful and stir frequently. Once the chips are melted, add the cocoa powder, mix well and set aside.

Warm sweetener, vita fiber, heavy cream, and 1/3 cup of water in a medium  heavy-bottomed pot over low heat without stirring until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium high, stirring frequently. It will bubble up once it get’s really hot and that’s exactly what you want! Let it bubble for about 4-5 minutes, stirring it constantly so as not to burn.

Turn off heat and whisk in the salted butter, vanilla and melted chocolate. It will look messy at first but will come together beautiful and creamy but thick like real fudge should be. I would not keep this in the fridge, or you’ll be getting your hammer out just to get some. It keeps beautifully on the counter and is much easier to get into…   🙂
