No Bake, Keto Peanut Butter Cups

Next time I will know to smooth their tops
and level them while in the freezer.
This recipe is so easy, it took me about 10 minutes all together. 

It makes 9 peanut butter cups that will leave you feeling full afterwards. 

This snack is a good quick fix if you need a snack to survive cooking a meal. 

1/2 cup of melted butter
6 pieces of 90% dark chocolate
1/4 cup of granulated sweetener
10 drops of liquid sweetener
1 tablespoon heavy cream
4 tablespoons of peanut butter
1 teaspoon of unsweetened chocolate almond milk

Prep work:
-Melt 1/2 cup of butter.
-Line a cupcake tray with cupcake papers.

-Melt chocolate and sweetener with the butter.
-Stir in cream, peanut butter, liquid sweetener and almond milk.
-Divide ingredients in the cupcakes papers.
-Smooth the tops for even texture on the tops (I did not worry about this). The peanut butter cups firm quickly, I recommend doing this immediately after each is poured.
-Freeze, they will firm up quickly and are able to be eaten after 10-15 minutes.

Keep the peanut butter cups in the freezer, they melt quickly. 

****An easy way to reduce carbs is to switch out the typical Kraft Peanut Butter (again, using what I have) and to use a low sugar peanut butter.
