Who needs peanut butter cups when you can have coconut butter cups that are just as indulgent and delicious? These mini Keto chocolate coconut butter cups are the perfect nut-free High-fat snack to satisfy your sweet cravings. These Keto chocolate coconut butter cups are made with unsweetened chocolate chips, creamy coconut butter, and just a few drops of Keto-friendly sweetener, perfect for when you need a mini treat during the day. Once you make them, I doubt you will have any leftovers to store.

How to store these Keto chocolate coconut butter cups?

These Keto chocolate coconut butter cups can be made ahead of time to be enjoyed throughout the week. To store these Keto chocolate coconut butter cups, transfer the chocolate coconut butter cups to an airtight container and place the butter cups in a refrigerator and store up to 1 week. Alternatively, you can store these Keto chocolate coconut butter cups in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Why use coconut butter in this recipe?

Any dessert ought to have somewhat of sweetness to it. We used coconut butter to add a hint of sweetness to these Keto chocolate coconut butter cups. Coconut butter contains natural sweetness; instead of adding additional sweetener, it does just the trick! It is creamy, slightly sweet, and melts in your mouth, making it perfect for desserts. Besides making desserts, coconut butter can also be used on almost all baked goods. Just smear it over warm Keto muffins or Keto bread. It can also be used in place of butter.

Are there any flavor variations to this recipe?

This recipe is relatively simple, making it adaptable to many flavor variations. To make Keto coffee cups, replace coconut butter with almond butter and add a dash of espresso powder. For almond-flavored Keto butter cups, replace coconut butter with almond butter and add crushed almonds.

Recipe Steps

steps 6

40 min

  • Step 1

    Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe dish until melted. Mix using a spatula and allow the chocolate to finish melting as you mix. Then add 1/8 tsp. vanilla extract and any sweetener of your choice (a few drops of stevia extract works best) and mix.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Line the muffin tray with mini muffin liners and carefully add a small amount of the melted chocolate to each muffin hole while spooning the chocolate up the sides about ¾ of the height of the muffin liners. Transfer the pan to the freezer for 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to firm up.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Meanwhile, melt the coconut butter by placing the coconut butter jar in a hot water bath. Do not melt the coconut butter in the microwave since It will burn the coconut butter. Once melted, measure out 1/5 tbsp. coconut butter in a small bowl and mix in 1/8 tsp. vanilla extract.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Remove the muffin tray from the freezer and add a dollop of coconut butter to each muffin hole. Transfer the muffin tray back to the freezer to allow the coconut butter to set for a couple of minutes.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Once the coconut butter is set, take the muffin tray out of the freezer and cover the coconut butter layer with the remaining melted chocolate. Evenly spread out the chocolate over the coconut butter to ensure all the coconut butter is fully covered. Sprinkle unsweetened coconut flakes on top of the chocolate layer.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Transfer the muffin tray back to the freezer for about 20 minutes to allow the chocolate to fully set and firm up. Enjoy right away. Leftover chocolate coconut butter cups can be left in the fridge to remain chilled or in the freezer.
    Step 6

      What can I use instead of coconut butter? It’s not available here. Just coconut oil?

        you just need to get unsweeted coconut flakes and use a high quality blender like vitamix and you will have coconut butter. most stores dont have it in butter form and its way cheaper to blend it yourself

        Is this recipe for the mini cupcake tray? I’m assuming so, but would like to make sure. I’ve made Keto copies of Reese’s peanut butter cups when I was first trying to get my husband on Keto, and I used a silicone mini cupcake try. He loved them.

          Lily's has sugar-free semi-sweet chocolate chips. Probably can use them.

          You cannot eat semi-sweet chocolate on a Keto diet; the sugar will knock you out of ketosis. You would have to use completely unsweetened chocolate, like Bakers, or plain cocoa powder and butter.

        Do we have to use the brand names mentioned here or would any 100% semi sweet dark chocolate be ok?

          Unsweetened is what you need, not semi-sweet.

          ChocZero sells dark, white, milk chocolate and peanut butter keto chips that all taste amazing. Buying directly from their website is cheaper than Amazon and they sell them is 6 packs.

          You can use Baker's unsweetened 100% chocolate is on the baking aisle. it's delicious and is dairy and sugar free. Lily's makes dark chocolate chips. They are dairy free chocolate chip sweetened with stevia but, they are pricey and sometimes hard to find

        I haven't made these YET but plan to as soon as I get choc chips. I am commenting bc there is an error in the ingredients list! "Unsweerened" (the chocolate) should be "Unsweetened". Minor nitpick I know.

        • MirthfulArugula379546

          MirthfulArugula379546 a year ago

          It’s not minor. Semi-sweet chocolate would have so much sugar in it you would most likely no longer be in ketosis.

        Any hints on technique to get the chocolate up the side of the cup without it all pooling in the bottom?

          They make small candy brushes, they look like a pastry brush

          When it's partially cool maybe try taking the cups out the freezer and holding individual cases tilt them to coat the sides.

        Excellent recipe! I can’t wait to go home and make for my family but my 87 yr old parents enjoy them with me.

            I am trying these now but I guess I need mini muffin cups I made a double batch and used the whole thing of chocolate for the bottom 😔 I guess I need to adjust the value for mine but anxious to eat one!!

              In step 3 it almost sounds as if we are adding the vanilla to the entire jar of coconut butter, rather than just to the measured amount. In step 4 we are removing the pan with the chocolate from the OVEN -- haha! (a small mental slip, something we all do from time to time) These sound yummy and I look forward to trying them.

                It must have been corrected as the recipe says as it should from the freezer.
