HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE CHEESECAKE CUPS KETO RECIPE?
PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIPS COOKIE CUPS
These peanut butter cookie cups are so delicious and they work great as shells for delicious peanut butter cheesecake filling.
I was using just slightly modified recipe for keto peanut butter chocolate chip cookies which is already published on my blog.
That recipe is already loved by my readers, it is proven and so tasty!
So, I just baked these peanut butter cookies in a form of shell in these silicone muffin cups. I love those silicone muffin cups because they are totally non sticky and so easy to use.
PEANUT BUTTER CHEESECAKE FILLING
This peanut butter cheesecake filling is my children’s favorite dessert. They make it by themselves. They just grab some cream cheese or mascarpone and peanut butter and they whip this by themselves.
My children are 6 and 3 years old. 😆
That keto cheesecake filling is probably my family’s favorite emergency keto dessert. However, it’s even better when prepared in these keto peanut butter cookie shells.
For this filling you need cream cheese or mascarpone, 2 TBS of pure, unsweetened peanut butter, vanilla extract and any low carb sweetener you like. If you’re totally sweetener free, this is good even without sweetener. Literally, you just whip it altogether and that’s it!
KETO GANACHE TOPPING
When making this keto ganache make sure you have a good quality dark chocolate. I always use at least 70% dark chocolate or even 85% sweetened with stevia and erythritol.
You will need to bring heavy whipping cream to boil, remove from the heat and add chocolate with constant whisking until starts thickening.
Pour it over the filling in the peanut butter cookie cups and leave it to become thick for few hours in the fridge. It’s always the best if it stays in the fridge overnight.
