Sugar-Free Frozen Peanut Butter Cups are just as good as traditional peanut butter cups, only frozen is even better!
These little creamy frozen peanut butter cups are what summer dreams are made of! Made without sugar, low carb, gluten free and pretty quick prep time too! The hardest part is waiting for the ice cream to harden before coating them in chocolate!
I'm always looking for easy recipes in the summer. You know the kind that give you the most bang for your buck in the kitchen. The ones that leave you feeling completely satisfied and pretty enough to serve to unexpected summer time guests.
This is one of those recipes to keep in your freezer at all times!
Chocolate and peanut butter of course is a classic combo that never gets old. But adding in the frozen aspect and it's even more heavenly.
These little bites didn't last long in my home at all. Within days my daughter, my hubby, my sister-in-law and I had eaten them all up. And I feel absolutely no guilt whatsoever!
Once you make these, you may never want a regular peanut butter cup again. Just Saying. 🙂
Here's my video showing how easy these really are!
Frozen Peanut Butter Cups
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ½ cup peanut butter unsweetened
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla liquid stevia
- 12 ounces sugar free chocolate chips
- crushed peanuts optional
- In a stand mixer, blend all the ingredients—except chocolate and peanuts—together until thoroughly combined. Taste and adjust Stevia if needed. Pour batter into a mini muffin cup pan lined with silicone liners for easy removal. Freeze for 1 hour before coating with chocolate.
- To make outer chocolate coating, simply melt chocolate over a double boiler or melt in a microwaveable bowl, at 30-second intervals, stirring until smooth.
- Dip one frozen peanut butter cup into chocolate at a time. Remove with a fork and tap excess chocolate on the side of the bowl.
- Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. If desired, immediately top each with crushed peanuts before the chocolate hardens. Return to the freezer for at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
I just made these. Not so good with just the stevia. Rather bland. I added 4 heaping tbs of swerve confectioners. DELISH ! Thank you for so many great recipes.
Do you think these would work as a pie filling in a low carb crust?
They look amazing 🙂
Yes I do think that will work.
These look great and I can't wait to try them. Do you have a particular brand of peanut butter you typically use?
What could I sub for the stevia I just never liked the Taste of it? Thanks C
any sweetener you want, add a small amount then taste it before putting in molds and freezing.
Thank you! I LOVE them ??
What's the best way to melt choc.? Easy way.
I microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stir each time, continue until smooth.
These look incredible! To be dairy free too, I guess I could sub full fat coconut milk (or cream?) for the heavy cream but do you have a suggestion for a substitute for the cream cheese?
I believe the brand Daiya sells a dairy free cream cheese at Whole Foods.
Can I use plain stevia and regular vanilla. It's what I have on hand. Will it change the taste a lot?
Thanks for the great recipe!
yes that's fine
I am allergic to chocolate (dark is the worst) do you think I could use white chocolate instead?
most white chocolate is not sugar free but you could I guess
Where did you get the silicone cups from?
I made these for my son who has diabetes. I didn't have silicone liners and just sprayed the tins. They stuck a bit but with a butter knife, I easily popped them out. My son absolutely love them. Thanks for a great recipe and and great website!
I don't have silicone cups. Can I use paper liners? Will they stick when frozen? Or just plain muffin tin?
I think paper liners would stick, I'd spray the pan really well if you don't have silicone liners.
These are SO fun! I'll take 3!

Am I missing it somewhere? the written recipe? I have read and watched the video and still I cannot locate the written recipe with the amounts of ingredients to be used. please help.
Underneath the video is a link. It starts with RECIPE followed by an arrow and the recipe name. (it's in red on my computer, if that helps).
It is NOT the same as in the video
It is the recipe I wrote for Sweetleaf and it is the same as the video I made, thank you! http://sweetleaf.com/reduced-sugar-frozen-peanut-butter-cups/

Under the last picture in Large letters saying the name of the recipe. Click that.
Do you have a written recipe with the nutritional facts?
Is it at the website where I wrote the recipe: http://sweetleaf.com/reduced-sugar-frozen-peanut-butter-cups/
Love your video, Brenda! And you know I love all things peanut butter and chocolate.
Thanks for such yummy recipes....and not to be a downer, but it would be more accurate to say no-sugar added rather than sugar free. There's certainly sugar in the chocolate, the peanut butter and also the creme cheese...although, if the peanut butter is natural fresh ground the natural sugar is minimal. And there is lactose in the creme cheese which has naturally occurring sugar in the milk/creme.
It does look delicious....just a suggestion for full and accurate disclosure.
There is no sugar in the chocolate using Lily's Sweets chocolate made with stevia. There is no sugar in the peanut butter using all natural no sugar added, just peanuts. Total sugar per peanut butter cup is 0.6 grams due to the natural sugars in cream cheese. I do not know of any frozen sugar free treat with completely 0 grams sugar per serving. I think anything listed having LESS than 1 gram of sugar is indeed accurate to state sugar free.
Sugar free implies the only sugars are naturally in the ingredients. Unless you're making them out of meat and fat, everything has carbs. The chocolate is sugar free, natural pb has no added sugar, and cream cheese has no added sugars. I think you're confused about sugar free and what it means. Even regulated labels list carbs as 0 if less than 1 carb per serving.
