These taste similar to a reeses peanut butter cup, but not quite the same. I wouldn't reccomend using "natural" peanut butter because it changes the taste. I use creamy peanut butter such as jif or peter pan, which has some sugar in it, but not much. The almond meal/flour is just ground up almonds, i make it myself and keep it in the freezer, it can go rancid if not refrigerated.
- 2 ounces baker unsweetened chocolate, melted
- 3⁄4-1 cup Splenda sugar substitute, depending on desired sweetness
- 2 teaspoons peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1⁄4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons almond meal or 2 tablespoons almond flour
- 2 tablespoons Splenda sugar substitute
- 1 dash salt
- Butter a small square pan, the pan size depends on how thick you want them to be but it needs to be pretty small.
- Even in a very small pan, these still come out quite thin, if you prefer them thicker, just double all the ingredients.
- Mix the melted chocolate, splenda, butter, and 2 teaspoons peanut butter until smooth.
- Spread half of the mixture into the bottom of buttered pan.
- Put the pan into the freezer.
- While it's freezing, mix together the peanut butter, almond meal/flour, salt, and the 2 tablespoons splenda.
- After the chocolate hardens in the freezer, take it out and spread the peanut butter on top.
- Put the pan back into the freezer for about 3-4 minutes, until the peanut butter layer is semi-firm.
- Spread the remaining chocolate on top and put in the freezer until set.
- Cut into small squares and store in the refrigerator.
