Tips and Tricks: Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Hearts

  • Double Broiler: This is a must for melting chocolate. Keeping the chocolate on very low heat helps the chocolate stay smooth as the peanut butter hearts are being dipped.
  • Using a Fork to Dip: Placing the heart on top of the fork and dipping really make it’s so easy to cover the hearts then to transfer to the wax paper.
  • Adding Coconut Oil to the Chocolate: Coconut oil really does help the chocolate have a really smooth and shiny consistency.
  • Use Wax Paper: This is a must and will make removing the chocolate after it sets so much easier.
  • Sprinkle with Kosher Salt: I love sprinkling each chocolate with Kosher Salt. It really gives the hearts such an amazing texture and flavor.

What’s The Best Keto and Paleo Chocolate?

  • Keto: I love using Lily’s Chocolate Chips. This brand tastes so good and has minimal carbs. This does have dairy, so if you are DF, you will need to stay away from this brand.
  • Paleo/DF: Hu Chocolate is by far the best Paleo and Dairy Free Chocolate. This brand does have a few more carbs, but I do love the fact that it’s dairy free.

What if I Don’t Have Heart Molds?

No worries if you don’t have heart molds. My other favorite way to make these is rolling them in balls instead. Using molds makes them super cute, but can be a bit time consuming. Instead, just roll them in golf ball size balls, dip in the chocolate and freeze.

If you do want to use molds, below are the ones I recommend. You can also roll the dough out and cut them using a cookie cutter of choice.

  • Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes
  • Yield: 40 small hearts 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Use a hand held mixer and mix on medium speed until completely combined. The consistency will be dough-like.
  2. Place in heart molds or molds of choice. If you do not have molds, feel free to roll these into balls and place onto a baking sheet. 
  3. Transfer the molds or baking sheet to the freezer and freeze for a minimum of 45 minutes to 1 hour (or longer) until they are firm enough to dip into the chocolate. Line another cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside. 
  4. Using a double boiler, fill the bottom boiler with about 1 inch -1.5 inches and simmer over low heat. In the top boiler. Add in the chocolate chips and stir continuously until completely smooth and melted. Add in the 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and mix. This will make the chocolate really smooth. 
  5. Using a fork, dip each peanut butter heart into the melted chocolate. Gently tap any excess chocolate off, then place onto the wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Repeat until all the hearts have been dipped in chocolate. Sprinkle each heart with Kosher salt if desired.  Place them in the refrigerator to allow the chocolate to harden.
  6. Store the hearts in an airtight container in the fridge or you can freeze them for up to a month.

Notes

  • If you are needing a Paleo sub for brown sugar swerve, feel free to use coconut sugar (this is not keto).
  • If you do not have heart molds, feel free to roll them in balls instead.
  • For Keto, Lily’s Chocolate Chips are great. For Dairy Free and  Paleo, I love using HU Chocolate.  
  • Nutrition is calculated using peanut butter and Lil’s Chocolate Chips. 2 Net carbs per heart. Take the fiber and subtract from carbs to get NET.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
