For the keto peanut butter filling
57gunsalted grass-fed butteror coconut butter, at room temperature
Add the butter and coconut oil (or more butter) to a large bowl. Cream the mixture with an electric mixer until evenly combined and super smooth. Add the lesser amount of sweetener to start and continue to mix until light and fluffy. Add in the peanut butter and mix until just combined. Check for sweetness and salt, keeping in mind that the store-bought version is on the salty side. Set aside.
Melt the chocolate in a water bath stirring frequently, adjusting the thickness with a touch of coconut oil (do a teaspoon at a time!). You want the consistency to be pourable but thick, and how much you need depends on the chocolate you're using.
Spoon chocolate into moulds, and swirl it around so it goes up the sides (1/2-1", depending on how thick you want your cups to be). Freeze for a few minutes until set.
Add a dollop of your peanut butter filling, freeze for 15 minutes until set, top off with a thin layer of chocolate, and refrierate once again until set. Keep in the fridge for a couple weeks or frozen for three months.
*A bit of coconut oil improves the texture quite a bit, without any taste whatsoever. But feel free to sub with more butter.
The Three Types of Keto Chocolate (!!)
Feel free to pick between your favorite keto chocolate (i.e. white, milk or dark!). And p.s. while you can find them on amazon now, they're waaaay better price at your local WallMart)All three of Bake Believe's current products have incredible texture, with very (very!) little aftertaste*. Imo, they might even be better than Lily’s… And this isn’t sponsored btw, just happy to recommend per usual.* I did notice that the cooling aftertaste was accentuated when the chocolate is melted (same as Lily’s). But once it has cooled down in the fridge the problem is solved.Please note that nutrition facts were estimated per fat bomb, assuming a 24 yield. Also keep in mind that nutrition values may vary widely depending on the peanut butter and chocolate used.
