Five Minute Milk Chocolate Fudge is unbelievably rich and satisfying! Those of you who have loved deep, dark, chocolate your whole life are in luck with Trim Healthy Mama! Others, like myself, who have always avoided dark chocolate have had to adjust for the most part as the dark chocolate is going to be the healthiest choice.
But what about those special occasions when you just really need that sweet, milk chocolate that you’ve enjoyed from your childhood? Here’s one answer, healthier than any sugar-laden, guilt-plagued, insulin inducing chocolate bar, but still best for special occasions because it is fairly high in fat and needs an added protein source. I drink a warm collagen coffee with mine.

I get asked about blackstrap molasses a lot so here’s the deal on it. This highly nutritional but very sweet supplemental sweetener is allowed in tiny amounts for the purposes of enriching recipes and giving them a “brown sugar” type experience. Be sure and buy a very small bottle because the most you’ll ever use is 1 tsp per recipe, if that. In fact, I only used 1/4 teapoon for this recipe. This one has a squeeze top which is a huge plus cause it’s a little messy. Affiliate link:
Five Minute Milk Chocolate Fudge
Yield 8 pieces
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup Gentle Sweet or 2 tablespoons Pyure -(powdered in a coffee grinder or other)
- 1 pinch of mineral salt
- 1/4 teaspoon blackstrap molasses (optional buts adds a lot)
- 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum (important to keep it from separating)
- 2 tablespoons collagen
- 1/3 cup Lily's chocolate chips
- pecan halves
Lightly oil a small silicone loaf pan (mine was 3 x 7) or use silicone mini muffin cups or whatever shapes you'd like. If you don't have the silicone then line a small loaf pan with plastic wrap.
- In a heavy 1-quart glass bowl melt the butter in a microwave for 1 minute or until melted. (Placing a paper towel over the butter will keep it from making a mess in the microwave if it pops.)
- Remove the melted butter from the microwave and whisk in the cream, sweetener, salt, and molasses and return to the microwave.
- Microwave this mixture for 2 more minutes.
- Remove from the microwave and whisk in the xanthan gum and microwave for two more minutes.
- Remove from the microwave and whisk in the collagen and chocolate. Continue to mix the chocolate into the hot mixture until melted; it melts quickly... Top with some pretty pecan halves.
- Lightly oil a small silicone loaf pan or use silicone mini muffin cups or whatever shapes you'd like. If you don't have the silicone then line a very small pan with plastic wrap.
- Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and allow to set up in the fridge for a couple of hours. If you're in a hurry it will set up faster in the freezer.
*This fudge is very tasty before it sets up in the fridge for a few hours or faster in the freezer but it has a slimey texture while wet. I have no idea why this happens because hardly any xanthan gum is used but it is cooked into the caramel base so possibly that is why. I'm letting you know because that disappears as soon as it firms up and does not return.
*I did not test this fudge with gluccie instead of xanthan so I have no idea how it would work.
