How to Make Keto Inside Out Peanut Butter Cups
For the top and bottom layers
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup grass-fed unsalted butter
2 tablespoons swerve confectioners
For the middle layer
3 ounce bar Lily’s Dark Chocolate, very finely chopped
1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
Add the Crazy Richard’s peanut butter, mascarpone cheese and butter to a microwave safe cup and melt in the microwave for 15 seconds.
Stir in the swerve confectioners, then microwave for an additional 10-15 seconds, or until melted.
Whisk to combine.
Separate out 3/4 cup of the mixture and set aside for the top layer.
Pour the mixture into silicone molds 1/3 of the way up, then put in the freezer for 10 minutes, or until set.
Add the Lily’s chocolate and coconut oil to a microwave safe cup and melt in the microwave.
Stir until well combined.
Then pour another 1/3 of the way up the molds. Freeze for another 10 minutes, or until set.
Pour the remaining peanut butter mixture over the top and freeze for 15-20 minutes or until firm.

Why Eat Keto Fat Bombs?
A Ketogenic Diet consists of a high amount of fat, moderate protein and low carbs, so the bulk of our calories come from healthy fats. If we don’t consume enough healthy fat, we run the risk of following a high protein diet which is not Keto!
Some people struggle with this concept, since we’re been told for many years that fat is bad and we should eat low/no fat. Nothing could be further from the truth!
These fats can include butter, heavy cream, coconut and coconut oil, avocados and avocado oil, mascarpone cheese, olive oil, cream cheese to name a few. For a more comprehensive list of these foods, see my Keto Foods List! For different ideas on how to use them , check out 15 Ways to Add More Fats into Your Keto Diet.
Adding these healthy fats into our meals is key, but there are times when you just don’t have enough or doesn’t quite fit into a particular meal that you’re preparing. Fat bombs are perfect for times like this, where you can consume one or two and get your healthy fats in your macros! Most recipes make a fairly decent amount and most often can be frozen, so you can always have some on hand!
Another great perk to most fat bombs is they double as a sweet treat, that doesn’t kick you out of Ketosis! Who doesn’t love a bite of something sweet, without having to make an entire cake, pie or batch of cupcakes!?
