Default PB fat bombs

These are the ONLY way I can tolerate my beloved PB, so a just reward at the end of the day.

1/4 c PB
1/4c CO
1/4 c BUTTER
1 square chocolate
Microwave all together till melted then add
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!!!).

A candy mold is a great idea! I keep using my mini-muffin tin for stuff like this and it's a huge pain to get everything out in one piece.

I have learned you have to put the candy mold on a baking tray, in the freezer. But not for long. But the molds are floppy.

Do ice cube trays work or has no one tried them?

Maybe if they were chilled first ... but how do you get the FBs out? I think they may stick more than ice. If you try, let us know.

Oh, also, the flat shapes are MUCH easier to bite into! Cubes would melt on the outside and still be frozen in the middle, so you would end up gnawing on them.

I'll try it but have little hope for success after reading your reply. The trays I have are plastic and twist for loosening the ice or your can set them in warm water to loosen the ice before twisting. Guess I'll have to look for silicone trays!

I use these - the pink ones - for mine. They come out great as long as they are fully cold from the frig.

I make mine pretty much in the same proportion you do, maybe less almond/peanut butter, but add a little heavy cream and these days some granulated coffee cuz I love mocha ...

What does your recipe yield with 1 tbs in each mold? I'm trying to figure out what size chocolate mold(s) to get.

Thanks,

Candy

You rock, Lady!!! Those are great pieces of FB!!! I bought a Wilton baking sheet with 24 squares, made the recipe above which filled 16 squares with 1 tablespoon servings. I made a second batch, modifying the recipe to fill the sheet (24). I calculated calories to 92.5 per piece; 1.6 carbs per piece; 1.2 g protein... and I LOVE them!!!

Thanks for sharing!!!

I'm trying this mold. The internet listing calls it a Peanut Butter Cup mold, but the package says it's just a Candy Mold. I don't think they'll be as good as the silicone mold, but it's only a tenth of the cost of a silicone mold. It's not that cost is a problem, it's that Dear Hubby HATES kitchen clutter and I can't really justify a candy mold -- yet
