Peanut butter cups

Peanut butter cups

Peanut butter and dark chocolate is one of my fave flavour combos! So I’ve recreated Reeses peanut butter cups with less sugar and carbohydrates, making these cups keto-friendly 🙂

Because of the high cocoa content (I used 85% dark chocolate but you can use whatever you like), these are really rich and super satisfying. One PB cup is perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth 😉 If you don’t like really dark chocolate, you can always use milk chocolate. I like to go for the dark stuff because it means I won’t go crazy eating the whole batch! Dark chocolate is much more satiating than milk choc.

These are so damn easy to make. All you need is 3 simple ingredients.

I also made a peanut butter and jelly version of these cups. All you need to do is add a spoon of berry chia jam to each cup along with the peanut butter. The combo is SO good!
