Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Recently I saw a recipe video for peanut butter eggs. I have eaten low carb for years now, but I can still remember how delicious peanut butter eggs are. They also happen to be my husband’s favorite. They looked so good in the video that I had to make them.

Except the recipe had sugar. So. Much. Sugar. It had cane sugar. It had brown sugar. It pretty much was just en egg full of sugar. I decided to give the recipe a try, but since I eat low carb, high fat, I just left out the sugar. Don’t go thinking I added a bunch of artificial sweeteners either.

No added sugar. No added artificial sweeteners. Still every bit of delicious!

*If you are accustomed to a lot of sweetness in your diet, add Stevia or Swerve at your own risk 😉

Tip: I no longer use artificial sweeteners in my recipes. If you still use sweeteners, these may not be sweet enough for you. Try adding liquid stevia drops or Swerve to your desired sweetness level.
