Ingredients

5 drops SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Vanilla Crème Sweet Drops®
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup peanut butter, unsweetened
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
12 oz. chocolate chips, sugar-free (85% dark chocolate recommended)

Optional
Peanuts, crushed

Directions

In a stand mixer, blend all the ingredients—except chocolate and peanuts—until thoroughly combined. Taste and adjust SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Vanilla Crème Sweet Drops® if needed. Pour the 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, melt chocolate over a double boiler or 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.
