Happy Chocolate Day! It’s that one day of the year when you can indulge in your favorite chocolate treats without being judged (too much).
If you’re on the ketogenic diet, you might think that this day isn’t for you. Like that sad kid looking in the toy store window at something you can’t have, you frown and walk away with soluble tapioca fiber and exogenous ketones in hands. But not so fast.
There are plenty of keto-friendly chocolate dessert recipes that let you satisfy your sweet tooth and celebrate this unofficial holiday. Here are five keto chocolate day recipes that you can make today.
Keto Nutty Chocolate Fudge
Let’s kick off our list with one of the best ways to satisfy your chocolate day cravings: fudge.
Traditional fudge is packed with sugar and while it may taste like heaven, it’ll kick you out of ketosis. Our keto-friendly version tastes exactly the same, but you don’t have to feel guilty about enjoying it. Careful with this one though. It’s a bit higher in net carbs than our other recipes at 7 grams per serving.

Keto Reese’s Cup Fat Bombs
For the chocolate lover who loves to mix sweet with salty, try these keto Reese’s Cup fat bombs. With only 2.8 net carbs and 5 grams of fat, these are a guilt-free treat that can keep you in ketosis.

Keto Nutella (Chocolate Hazelnut Spread)
When you started the ketogenic diet, did you think you’d ever see Nutella again? Sure, if you want to stay in ketosis, you can’t buy the actual brand, but you can do the next best thing: make your own keto-friendly version.
Our keto chocolate hazelnut spread will have you saying, “Nutella who?”

Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Cake
Are you looking for a way to support your post-workout recovery while indulging in keto-friendly chocolate? Our high-protein, high-fat keto cake provides the amino acids you need for recovery and the fat your body requires to stay in ketosis.
Best of all, this one will become a fast favorite with friends so don’t be surprised when you’re asked to make everyone’s birthday cakes.

Another classic snack favorite, we all have our own ways of eating Oreo cookies. Do you separate the cookie pieces or go right for the full milk dunk? Did you think you’d never be able to do that while on the keto diet? Think again.
