Diabetisweet is isomalt with a pinch of ace-K thrown in. Although polyd can be used as a partial sugar replacer, I do not know how it will react in this recipe. I have never made any fudge with polyd in it. If you try it, let us know how it turns out please.

BTW this is my favorite fudge.

Erythritol Chocolate Fudge(18 servings)

2 cups powdered erythritol
1 splenda quick pack
2 T. diabetisweet
4 T. not/sugar
1.5 oz. unsweetened chocolate or Lindt 85% dark cocoa bar (grated)
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
2/3 cup Hood calorie countdown 2% milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon butter

In a small mixing bowl combine powdered erythritol, not/sugar, cream of tartar, diabetiSweet, and splenda quick pack until all lumps are gone.
Mix the sweetener blend, milk, grated chocolate, and bring to a boil slowly, stirring until the ingredients are well blended.
Boil to the soft-ball stage, or until candy themometer reaches 235 to 240 degrees.
Remove from the stove, add the butter, but do not stir it in.
When lukewarm, add the vanilla and beat until it creams; meaning, until the shiny appearance disappears and the fudge holds its shape.
Spread it in a buttered pan and when it hardens cut it into squares.
I made the above recipe again and to it I added :

6 T. peanut butter powder
4 T. peanut butter davinci

I hydrated the powder with the davinci and added it with the milk and chocolate.

It looks basically the same but when I tasted it....I was in heaven!!!

Kevin, how do you store this? Regular old sugar fudge could just be stored in the cupboard, but with so many LC things getting moldy, I am wondering. Very probably I will be the only consumber, and 18 pieces 'should' last me at least 18 days.

That's a good question Bette. I gave most of the first batch away so it wasn't around long enough. I will have to do a test to see how long a piece will last sitting out. The rest I will most likely keep in the frige or freezer after a few days.

Kevin, can I ask why you chose not to use peanut butter? Just curious.

Regular peanut butter would have been twice the carbs. That was my original reason of buying the powder.

I take it, Kevin, that it has passed the taste test too!

I always am interested in saving carbs!

OMG Janie, I swear I would put this to a taste test with any good HC fudge and challenge anybody to pick out the LC fudge.

Here was set and cut.
