Just a thought for those looking for candy molds. If you have a Hobby Lobby, or similar craft store, nearby go check out our their bakers aisle. The Hobby Lobby here sells all sorts of candy molds for less than $5.

Okay, I have my chocolate and my mold came, but I will have to use either real vanilla or some vanilla stevia (drops). Any hint as to how much or do I just go by taste?

1T Erythritol
1 T Vanilla (or other) splenda syrup
dash salt if your butter is not salted (mine IS!) for that authentic PB cup taste.

I put mine in a (Wilton) silcone candy mold, 1 TBS poured into each cup. STICK EM IN THE FREEZER to solidify, and keep them there!!!

A serving is then 2 pieces ... around 200 kcal. (Best to calculate and divide by the number of pieces!!!).
I presume CO = Cocoa powder like nestles?

I wanted to thank everyone for this reciepe. I thought I would have to live the rest of my life without choclate!

I just made these last night with a silicone mini-muffin tray, they came out perfect! I included 2 walnuts per cup and used crunchy peanut butter. They were fantastic.

Oh I substituded Monk Fruit extract, as sweetener, olive oil for the coconut oil. Like I said, I am delighted that I could make candy and have choclate again!

BTW some one asked how much sweetener is needed? It depends on the brand, but I only needed 1 teaspoon of monk fruit extract.

I've started to use Monk Fruit in the Raw because I can find it at the regular grocery store. Here's a link to the manufacturer's home page. The grocery store I go to carries the box of 40 packets.

Am I right in calculating that a tablespoon of monk fruit sweetener is between 1 - 1g of carbs?

I am willing to bet that it is 0.49g / teaspoon, so it would be 1.47g / tablespoon. Whenever I see an ingredient with carbs that reports as 0, the safest assumption is that it's just a smidge under 0.5 and is allowed to be rounded down.

I am baking for my DIL baby shower this Sunday and have just bought paper-cups for the red velvet cupcakes. I also got some mini ones for just in case. I wondered if I could try this in those or if they would stick.
I was also thrilled to find ground almond in small quantities in the event of me wanting to make a small cake or pancakes.

Thanks, it sounds delicious. Just looked at the choc eclaire sweets I use to buy.
