What Sweetener Do You Use for a Keto Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Balls?

I used Swerve Confectioner Sugar from Amazon in our keto peanut butter cream cheese ball recipe. This gives them a sweet taste without adding in extra sugar and carbs. Score!!

How to Make These Amazing Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Balls

  1.  Set your cream cheese and peanut butter out.  They need to be soft to work with.
  2.  Crush your chocolate chips in a food processor or chopper.  We used Ninja’s chopper.  
  3.  Once your cream cheese and peanut butter are room temp and soft enough to work with, mix them together along with the Swerve confectioners sugar
  4.  Roll into balls.  I made 8 medium balls.
  5.  Dip into the crushed chocolate chips (and nuts if you use)
  6.  Finally freeze them for a couple of hours.  I froze mine for 2 hours and then stored in the fridge. They didn’t last long there – not from going bad but from getting ate. 
  7.  Eat those bad boys!! Who says you gotta share.

Can I Use Real Natural Peanut Butter for these Keto Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Balls?

I would say yes, but I used Skippy’s Natural Peanut Butter which does not require stirring. 

I’d imagine the natural peanut butter you must stir works just fine because you’ll be mixing with cream cheese and the Swerve confectioners sugar

Just know that the consistency might be a bit more mushy and may require you to keep in freezer.
