Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

This tastes like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup had a baby with a Butterfinger bar.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Total time: 50 minutes

Ingredients:

• 1/2 Cup + 2 Tbls. Chunky Natural Peanut Butter

1.) Place Peanut Butter, Powdered Erythritol, Butter, Coconut Flour, Vanilla and Salt into a stand mixer (Or large bowl with a hand mixer). Once combined add in the Pork Rind Panko, and mix until combined.

2.) Line a muffin tin with 8 cupcake liners. Roll into 8 Equal sized balls. Flatten to a little smaller than the muffin tin.

3.) In a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips and butter. Keep an eye on it, and stir often.

4.) Place a teaspoon of melted chocolate into each of the muffin liners, and use a spoon to bring it up the sides about 1/4 of an inch. Try to work quickly.

5.) Place flattened Peanut Butter filling on right on top of the melted chocolate layer. Then top with a teaspoon of chocolate and smooth it out, and try to cover 1/4 inch down the sides.

Top with more chocolate, and smooth it out around the sides too.

Sprinkle with Salt Flakes and pop in the freezer for a half hour to set.

Notes:

💙 I haven’t tried this recipe with any of the no stir peanut butters. I used Kroger’s Simple Truth Crunchy Peanut Butter. It’s just Peanuts and Salt, you have to stir to combine the oil.

💙 I used So Nourished brand of Powdered Erythritol and Baconsheir Brand of Pork Panko. (Both you can find on Amazon.)

💙 If you can’t find Pork Panko you could always grind up some pork rinds in your food processor, and then measure it for the recipe. If you do this, try to find a good brand, not the super cheap stuff.

💙 Does it taste Porky? No at least not using the Pork Panko it added the buttery crunch you would find in a Butterfinger.

💙 These keep for weeks in the freezer. I just take one out about 1/2 an hour before I want to eat one.

💙 Salt Flakes on the top are optional, but highly recommended as it really brings out the flavor.

💙 You could make them in Mini Muffin Cups with liners. You may need additional chocolate chips and butter for the chocolate layer.

💙 Peanut Butter Filling makes 1 Cup or 252 grams.

💙 I use Keto Diet App to calculate using exact or as close to what I used. If you change the brands you will have to recalculate. Macros for the whole recipe.
