Reduced Sugar Frozen Peanut Butter Cups
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup peanut butter, unsweetened
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Vanilla Crème Sweet Drops™
- 12 oz. chocolate chips, sugar-free (85% dark chocolate recommended)
- Optional: peanuts, crushed
In a stand mixer, blend all the ingredients—except chocolate and peanuts—together until thoroughly combined. Taste and adjust SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Vanilla Crème Sweet Drops™ if needed. Pour batter into a mini muffin cup pan lined with silicone liners for easy removal. Freeze for 1 hour before coating with chocolate.
To make outer chocolate coating, simply melt chocolate over a double boiler or melt in a microwaveable bowl, at 30-second intervals, stirring until smooth.
Dip one frozen peanut butter cup into chocolate at a time. Remove with a fork and tap excess chocolate on the side of the bowl. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. If desired, immediately top each with crushed peanuts before the chocolate hardens. Return to the freezer for at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
