One of the most popular keto recipes on my blog is the aptly named Keto Chocolate Heaven. It’s a decadent, creamy chocolate base covered with a layer of keto chocolate topping. I’ve received many requests to make a peanut butter version, so here it is! Of course, I had to name it Keto Peanut Butter Heaven. 🙂

Note: If you try Keto Chocolate Heaven after making this recipe, you’ll find that the process is a bit different. Both processes are easy and produce the same result, but I’ve come to prefer this process. I’ll update that post soon!

Step #2: Make the Chocolate Topping

Mix all ingredients.

TIP: Note that the coconut oil should be melted, and the topping should be made right before adding it to the base; otherwise, it will begin to firm up.

Step #3: Make the Final Dessert

Add the topping to the base, chill in the fridge, and then remove before cutting into 30 glorious pieces!

TIP: If you have a hard time cutting it, let it thaw slightly on the counter. You can also warm the tip of your knife in hot water.

How to Store Keto Peanut Butter Heaven

Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container (freezer-safe if using the freezer). As long as none of the ingredients expire sooner, I’ve stored this in the fridge for up to three weeks and the freezer for up to three months.

Ingredients

Peanut Butter Base Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 4 oz butter softened
  • 1 cup unsweetened creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup Swerve Confectioners plus more if desired

Chocolate Topping Ingredients

Instructions

How to Make the Peanut Butter Base

  • Combine cream cheese, butter, and peanut butter in a large bowl. Beat together until smooth. Add Swerve and beat again until smooth and well-combined. Taste and add more Swerve Confectioners if desired.
  • Line a pan with wax or parchment paper and spread mixture evenly into the pan, making the top as smooth as possible.
  • Freeze for 30 minutes. A few minutes before getting it out of the freezer, make the chocolate topping.

How to Make the Chocolate Topping

  • Mix all ingredients. (Note that the coconut oil should be melted, and the topping should be made right before adding it to the base; otherwise, it will begin to firm up.)

How to Make the Final Dessert

  • Remove the peanut butter base from the freezer. If there are any ridges on the top, smooth them a bit with the back of a spoon.
  • Pour chocolate topping on top, as evenly as possible, tilting the pan if necessary.
  • Chill in the fridge for ten minutes or until the topping has fully hardened.
  • Remove pan from the fridge, remove dessert from pan, and cut into 30 pieces. (If you have a hard time cutting it, let it thaw slightly on the counter. You can also warm the tip of your knife in hot water.)

Notes

Tips:
  • I used a 6×6 square pan like this one.
  • If you have a Kroger grocery store in your area, I highly recommend using their Kroger Natural Peanut Butter.
  • Store covered in the fridge or freezer. 
  • Use MELTED coconut oil as listed in the recipe for best results. If you use liquid coconut oil (coconut oil that does not solidify, even in cool temperatures), you will need to heat it in order to properly combine it with the dry ingredients.
  • Use unsalted or salted butter depending on your personal preferences.
  • Traditional cocoa powder can taste a bit bitter to some people; for a smoother, less bitter flavor, use Dutch Process Cocoa Powder
