‘Your new favorite nut butter has arrived and what better way to enjoy it than with these LOW CARB white chocolate nut butter jelly cups!’

Watch out world, there is a new nut butter in town and I can say with absolute certainty you are going to fall head over heels in LOVE!  This Perfect Keto Butter is unreal.  So smooth, so rich, so decadent, and so perfectly keto!  Only 3 ingredients: macadamia nuts, cashews, and vanilla bean.  Great for keto and non keto’ers alike though since this is a wonderful option for you to get in all those healthy fats!

So after going through my first jar of this stuff (that should have been called Perfect Keto Crack), it was time to start coming up with recipes that I could incorporate it into.  The jar and a plain old spoon was getting far too dangerous for me.  What comes to mind when you think of peanut butter/nut butter (besides that spoon of course)? Nut Butter Cups!  For this amazing new product though, I knew I had to take those traditional PB cups up about 10 notches and make these extra special.  Of course it helped my recipe development brain that I also happened to have a batch of my “keto strawberry jelly” on hand for the inspiration.  Nut butter, jelly… yeah, they go hand and hand since age 5.

Not only that, I also opted for ‘white chocolate’ nut butter & jelly cups.  Using dark cacao would have worked just as well, but I really really wanted the flavor of the new nut butter to shine on these.  The raw cacao butter serves as such a great set point for flavors since its virtually tasteless.  Just a touch of sweetener, the new nut butter, and some homemade strawberry chia seed jelly.  You could also use a sugar free store bought brand as well if you like, I’m just not personally a fan of the artificial taste and the higher quality ones won’t work as well if you are on a ketogenic diet.

Any way you bite into it though, these will become a staple in your fat bomb rotation!

These also make for a wonderful make ahead treat.  Make a batch at the beginning of the week and enjoy them anytime a sweet craving kicks in.  Once made they can be stored in the freezer or fridge.  Right out of the refrigerator they are ready to eat.  If they are coming out of the freezer, let them sit out for 5-10 minutes until they soften just a bit.
