Once you try this ridiculously good keto chocolate dessert, you’ll see why I had no choice but to call it “Keto Chocolate Crack.” Each piece is oh-so-decadent and will satisfy all your chocolate cravings!

Up until recently, this recipe was exclusively called “Keto Chocolate Heaven” because it is heavenly! When you’re struck by a serious chocolate craving, a single piece of this stuff will crush your craving in two seconds flat (or maybe two minutes, depending on how quickly you devour it!).
I’ve decided “Keto Chocolate Crack” is also a good name for it because it is SO, SO good. I’m following in the footsteps of oh-so-delicious recipes like Keto Crack Coffee (mine) and Keto Crack Chicken (not mine). Whether you call it Keto Chocolate Crack or Keto Chocolate Heaven, you will LOVE the flavor!
I’ll let you in on a little secret, too. You can store Keto Chocolate Crack in the fridge or the freezer once it’s set… and here’s the secret: when you store it in the freezer and you let your piece thaw for a few minutes before eating, I swear it tastes like a Double Chocolate Klondike Bar. No offense to the original Klondike Bar, but I was ALL about the double chocolate flavor growing up, so this stuff brings back all the sugary childhood happiness without the sugar or the carbs.
You’ll also be happy to know that each piece contains only 1g net carbs, which means you can happily satisfy your chocolate cravings without blowing your daily macros.
I won’t waste any more time blabbing… let me show you how to make this amazing keto dessert!
Ingredients for Keto Chocolate Crack / Chocolate Heaven
This recipe uses basic keto staples that you most likely already have on hand. Two that are worth pointing out because they are a steal on Amazon:
Swerve Confectioners: If you’re looking for a sugar substitute, you’ll love Swerve Confectioners! It uses (natural) sugar alcohols which have zero effect on blood sugar, meaning you can subtract them from the net carb count. (That gives Swerve zero net carbs.) It also measures just like sugar, so there isn’t any guessing about how much to use. I purchase the 48 oz. bags because they are convenient and a much better price per ounce than the 12 oz. bags.
Nutiva Coconut Oil: While my favorite coconut oil is Dr. Bronner’s, Nutiva is a great brand that provides affordable, high-quality bulk options. I often buy the 54 oz. containers!
- Cocoa powder (traditional cocoa powder can taste a bit bitter to some people; for a smoother, less bitter flavor, use Dutch Process Cocoa Powder)
- Cream cheese
- Vanilla extract
How to Make Keto Chocolate Crack / Chocolate Heaven
There are three phases to this recipe, but they are all EASY. In phase one, you will make the chocolate base. In phase two, you will make the chocolate topping. In phase three, you will marry the base and topping, and they will live happily ever after. 😉
Phase 1: Make the Chocolate Base
Melt the butter, then add the softened cream cheese and vanilla extract. Mash with a fork until combined like this:
Combine cocoa powder and Swerve Confectioners, then add your cream cheese/butter mixture.
TIP: Traditional cocoa powder can taste a bit bitter to some people; for a smoother, less bitter flavor, use Dutch Process Cocoa Powder.
Mix on low with a hand mixer until well-combined and fluffy. Resist the urge to eat it all now. Note: The mixture will be very thick.
Spread evenly in a pan (I used an 8x6x2 glass pan), then place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Phase 2: Make the Chocolate Topping
A few minutes before you take the base out of the freezer, combine all the topping ingredients and mix well to create a liquid topping. (The photo above is unmixed; I forgot to take a mixed photo. Oops!)
Phase 3: Create the Final Dessert
Remove chocolate base from freezer. If there are any ridges on the top, smooth them a bit with the back of a spoon.
Then, pour chocolate topping on top, as evenly as possible, tilting the pan if necessary. Some of the base may melt slightly and give the top a fun chocolate swirl.
Cut into 30 pieces and enjoy!! This dessert is SO good.
Store: Covered in the fridge or freezer.

Chocolate Base Ingredients
How to Make the Chocolate Base
- Melt butter in a small pan on low.
- When butter is melted, add softened cream cheese and vanilla extract. Turn off the heat (but keep pan on the stove) and use a fork to mash the cream cheese and vanilla extract into the butter.
- To a large bowl, add cocoa powder and Swerve Confectioners. Mix to combine.
- Add cream cheese/butter mixture to the large bowl. Using a hand mixer on low, mix everything until you get a well-combined, fluffy mixture. (Note: The mixture will be very thick.)
- Spread mixture evenly into a pan, making the top as smooth as possible. (I used an 8x6x2" glass pan.)
- Freeze for 30 minutes. A few minutes before getting it out of the freezer, make the chocolate topping.
How to Make the Chocolate Topping
- Mix all ingredients. (Note that the coconut oil should be melted, and the topping should be made right before adding it to the base; otherwise, it will begin to firm up.)
How to Make the Final Dessert
- Remove chocolate base from freezer. If there are any ridges on the top, smooth them a bit with the back of a spoon.
- Pour chocolate topping on top, as evenly as possible, tilting the pan if necessary. Some of the base may melt slightly and give the top a fun chocolate swirl.
- Cut into 30 pieces and enjoy!

- Use unsalted or salted butter depending on your personal preferences.
- Traditional cocoa powder can taste a bit bitter to some people; for a smoother, less bitter flavor, use Dutch Process Cocoa Powder.
