    These were good. Next time I’ll add more chocolate… ran out halfway through the last step.

      Can these be stored at room temperature?

        Unfortunately no they melt quickly due to the coconut oil

      What can I use to substitute the coconut oil?

        If it's because you don't want the added coconut taste, use the LouAna brand, not the liquid oil kind but the kind in the white tub that is solid below 76 degrees. That way, it will melt to mix with the melted sugar-free chips (I like Lily's brand), then harden in the fridge or freezer until you want one. The LouAna brand does not taste or smell like coconut. If you are allergic to coconuts, use butter.

              Question I have the Hershey’s chipits chunks dark chocolate it’s keto grade A bit this recipe calls for unsweetened chocolate so how much do i use for mine ?

                dovecreekwinns 8 months ago

                The recipe calls for sugar-free chocolate, but it doesn't have to be unsweetened. It can be sweetened with a sugar-free sweetener or blend of sweeteners that you prefer. I use Lily's chips for things like this. If you use unsweetened chocolate and unsweetened peanut butter, it will not taste like a 'real' peanut butter cup. As for how much to use, that's up to your own taste, but I'd try 1/4 cup of powdered (not granulated) low-carb sweetener or an amount of liquid low-carb sweetener of the equivalent sweetness. You can also try adding a little sweetener to the peanut butter, too, if you want.

              OH MY GOD, what happens if you forget to add the coconut oil? AND I made 12 instead of 8....hope they're fine...

                frommetovuu 4 years ago

                Will be fine just macros will be less! Coconut oil just helps the chocolate spread easier

              Can you substitute cocoa powder for the choc chips?

              • dovecreekwinns

                dovecreekwinns 8 months ago

                Sure, but you'll probably want to add sweetener too. I'd try 5 tables of cocoa powder along with 1/4 cup of powdered low-carb sweetener and maybe an extra tablespoon of butter. Adjust to suit your own tastes.

                frommetovuu 4 years ago

                Yes! It will just be runnier but it will be frozen anyways.

              These are good. I used sugar free peanut butter and added some swerve confectioners to the peanut butter!

                  Use any nut butter you like. I ❤️ Nutzzo. If tracking macros consider that when changing from peanut butter.

                  gsmallory 4 years ago

                  I keep mine in the freezer because I use natural peanut butter and then tend to get soft

                Love these! Great way to get my sweet fix! So easy to make! They are small but DELICIOUS! I made mine on wax paper on a small baking sheet instead of the cupcake papers! Will definitely be making again soon!

                  Can I change peanut butter to almond butter?

                    I imagine any nut butter would work. Macros will change based on nut.
