Low Carb Tahini Butter Chocolate Cups

5 ratings

These tahini butter cups are super easy to make and can be ready in as little as a half hour. They are the perfect treat to satisfy your sweet tooth and require almost no prep. Simply melt some dark chocolate (use 85% or higher to limit carbs -- I use Theo brand 85%) and then layer chocolate and tahini butter in a cupcake liner and freeze! Top with sesame seeds and unsweetened coconut flakes (I love Let's Go Organic's brand because they offer a toasted, unsweetened version) to make them extra pretty. Store them in the fridge so they are extra cold and delicious.

    I used natural peanut butter instead of tahini. Home made Reese's PB cup. Is there a way to adjust recipe for macro counting?

      Yes, just save recipe to your recipes and then you can edit/customize and get macros automatically adjusted for you.

    These taste OK but not my favorite. I'll try with peanut butter next time. Make sure to thaw for 5 minutes before eating it.

      Simply delicious. This has been the single best change since I rejoined Carb Manager; they have so much more variety in the desserts section. Kudos!

        Not sure if my tahini is more runny than that in the recipe, but I'm having a hard time getting the tahini fully covered and then into my mouth without it getting everywhere! Alternately, completely frozen, I feel like I'm missing out on the rich chocolate flavor (not a fan of frozen chocolate). I used bake believe chocolate chips, about 2tbsp erythritol, and added about 4tbsp coconut oil. Portioned these into mini cup silicone molds (made 18 instead of 6). Will make again, but probably with cashew or almond butter (or maybe mix some coconut oil with the tahini to solidify it at fridge temperature...)

          And where can I find the Seeds, Sesame Butter, Tahini from Roasted and Toasted Kernels?

            It's only two items: Sesame seeds and Tahini butter. You can find them pretty much everywhere but especially in a market that sells Middle Eastern foods.

            It’s the long version…they should’ve just said Tahini 🤪

          I LOVE these! I added coconut oil and cocoa (2 TBLS each) and 1/4 cup cacao powder to chocolate bar melt. Will double next time!!

            This is great additional info. I have some pure cocoa solids, so I think I’m going to try to use that with an as-yet-undetermined sweetener. Probably stevia drops.
