Just like the real thing!

I love peanut butter cups, I would always pick up a package while I was waiting at the grocery check out looking at all the chocolate bars. The marketers know exactly how to target the sugar addicted. This recipe is a great replacement for those store bought carb loaded cups of heaven. Use a silicone tart pan and the cups will pop out in perfect shape.

Dave and I didn’t really get into keto fat bombs, we just didn’t need them and not many tasted very good. You can use this recipe as a fat bomb, the portions are about right. Freezing them is great if you want a more solid treat.
