  3. Close lid, set valve to seal. Select Manual for 1 minutes. (quick release when finished)
  4. To make the garlic butter you can use a small frying pan on the stove or just use the saute' function on your instant pot once they are done cooking. just simply remove them, dump water out Melt the butter Saute the garlic until fragrant 1-2 minutes add the brussel sprouts, add a dash of salt and pepper Saute in the butter for a few minutes, tossing to coat them well! transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Sugar Free! Sweetened Condensed Milk and Creamy Fudge

sugar free sweetened condensed mlikSugar free sweetened condensed Milk and Fudge!

 

 

 

 

Sugar free sweetened condensed milk and sugar-free fudge! Yep, It’s real and it’s so good!

 

 

Don’t be intimidated about the idea of making your own sweetened condensed milk! I looked through a few recipes and tips and I’ve made this three times now and it comes out perfectly every time!

 

 

First, I’d like to point out that the ingredient list is crazy simple!

sugar free sweetened condensed milk

 

 

Sugar free chocolate chips

Just three ingredients for delicious sweetened condensed milk!

  1. Cream
  2. Unsalted Butter
  3. Sweetener

And for fudge all you add to the condensed milk is sugar-free chocolate chips!

 

 

 

For sweetener I use a blend of stevia, Xylitol, and Erythritol But, you can use whatever sweetener you prefer!

Side note about sweetener: I haven’t said much about my sugar-free choices but I really love this combination of sweeteners,

they are natural and allow for no rise in your blood sugars!

My favorite Stevia is from Trim Healthy Mama, although you can also find many good choices of Stevia on Amazon or the grocery store.

and the others I order in bulk from Amazon and then blend together!

 

 

 

The most helpful trick I have come across for making the sweetened condensed milk is using a large shallow pan. Like a large frying pan!

This makes the milk condense so much faster and gives you a beautiful thick and creamy product in about 20 minutes.

 

Start by putting 2 cups of cream, 2 TBSP of unsalted butter, and 1/3 a cup of sweetener ( may need to convert the amount of sweetener if you are using something different, my blend is some what of a super sweet blend. ) into a shallow pan.

Condensed milk sugar free

 

Stir until dissolved and bring to a boil on medium to high heat.

Once boiling, simmer, stirring occasionally until condensed by about half and thick and bubbly. Should be about 15-20 minutes.

 

Cooking sugar free sweetened condensed milk

This will make about a cup to a cup and a half! seriouslysugar free sweetened condensed mlik LOOK at how creamy and thick this is??  (one note of caution…. no matter how badly you want to, Do Not lick the spoon and taste this right out of the hot pan.. you may or may not burn your tongue and regret it for the next two days! ?) But trust me, its soooo yummy!

 

 

 

 

 

Now to make fudge!!!

I love to make fudge right away while the milk is still hot. The chocolate chips melt right away and I can stick it in the freezer! Easy sugar free fudge

 

It’s a one to one ratio… so a cup of condensed milk and a cup of chocolate chips makes a full batch.

But if you are being weird and don’t want to eat the whole dish. (I guess it could happen?!) You could always make just half a cup and half a cup… or whatever you want!

 

You can also make it later by mixing the chocolate chips with the condensed milk and microwave in small increments, stirring in between each time until fully melted and blended together! Chill until hardened.

 

And then do your best to not stand at the counter ( or fridge) and eat the entire thing.. I’m not totally sure why that isn’t a good idea.. but we are supposed to resist the urge to do so.. I know, weird!  I just might have done this ( ok I didn’t eat the WHOLE thing) with a tub of peanut butter and a spoon… and I’m not going to say it was a bad idea! 🙂

Also, My friend Tiffani and I are dreaming all kinds of deliciousness like coconut flakes and nuts for the next time. And there will definitely be a next time!

 

I hope you try this recipe out and I hope you enjoy every sugar-free bite!

Instructions
Sweetened Condensed Milk
  1. Start by putting the cream, butter, and sweetener into a shallow pan (like a frying pan or skillet). Stir until dissolved and bring to a boil on medium to high heat. Once boiling, simmer, stirring occasionally until condensed by about half and thick and bubbly. Should take about 15-20 minutes. This will make about a cup to a cup and a half of sweetened condensed milk. And now you are ready to make fudge! (This cream can also be used as a yummy coffee creamer.)
Fudge
  1. Take 1 cup of the condensed milk and 1 cup of chocolate chips. If your sweetened condensed milk is still hot your chocolate will melt right away, stir to combine! If it has already cooled just microwave, stirring every few seconds until fully melted and combined. Chill in the fridge or freezer until solid. Pour into a square dish or just leave it in the bowl if you want thicker pieces. I've also seen some bloggers put their fudge into ice cube trays for easy personal serving sizes!
