  • Sharon

    Would love a really moist pumpkin nut bread. I am gran free and low carb. Thank you

  • Carla

    Followed recipe step by step, wondering why mine turned out like pudding. How long was the wait time on spreading the topping onto the fudge so that it wouldn't melt?

    • Swerve

      Hi Carla, we're sorry to hear you are having trouble with this recipe! Did you let the fudge chill for at least an hour? If so, you could try reducing the heavy cream down to 1 cup.

  • Daphne

    I absolutely hate coconut flour. Like coconut but hate the texture of coconut flour. Is there anything I can substitute it with?

    • Swerve

      Hey Daphne! You can substitute almond flour, regular flour, or just leave it out!

  • Leslie

    This recipe is delicious. it is the best "real" fudge I've made yet that is low carb! Thanks for sharing the recipe and I will definitely be checking this site for more recipe. Swerve is my absolute favorite sugar substitute and I use all the types...granular, confectioners, and Swerve Brown.
