I could’ve tried the Double Chocolate Mousse, or the Almond Fudge Brownies or the Banana Pudding but the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups won the day. Probably because they contain my 2 favorite things – chocolate and peanut butter…

But first, the Baking Day (it wasn’t very low-carb)…..


I took part in a baking day yesterday for the annual fair at my son’s school. Between a few moms and one grandma, we were charged with making no less than 24 Sticky Toffee Puddings.  Once the first pound of butter was unwrapped, we were off. Beaters were whirring and an untold amount of sugar was poured into the cake and the sticky sauce. I was thinking to myself how difficult it is to eat low-carb in this sugar filled world. We used up 28 pounds of brown sugar (that’s 13kg for the metrics!)


I oversaw several batches of the Toffee Sauce which was made of brown sugar, cream and butter. I was thinking about how I could make a low-carb version of this using Sukrin Gold, a low-carb brown sugar replacement made with erythritol. Something for another day! The cakes turned out beautifully and I made it home with thoughts of sweet treats.

I realized that I had struck gold when I remembered that I had a batch of Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups sitting in the fridge!!

When you’ve got young kids, you are surrounded by bake stalls and sweets. My kids probably eat less carbs than average but they don’t eat low-carb like I do, so temptation is all around. Rather than trying to have will-power of steel, I try to have something sweet in the fridge to satisfy my sweet cravings every now and then.

If you have a sweet tooth, you will love these low-carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. They take about 20-25 minutes of prep time and use only 5 ingredients like all Dessert-in-5 recipes.  Each layer needs to set in the fridge or freezer, so allow some time for that. Trust me, it will be worth the wait!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are strictly for adults only! Stash them in the fridge or freezer where the kids won’t find them.
