Your friends and family might think that going Keto means no treats, but you know better. There are plenty of low-carb Keto-friendly treats that skip the sugar without sacrificing flavor. For example, these homemade Keto cups fat bombs are delicious and easy to make and light on carbs. These Keto candies are packed with good fats from coconut butter and MCT oil. They only take ten minutes to make, plus hardening time but if you can’t wait to enjoy, you can also buy premade Keto cups from Eating Evolved. Just make sure you store them in a cool place, if they make it that long!

Check out how easy it is to throw together these Keto cup fat bombs:

Top Tips for Getting the Perfect Chocolate Shell

  • If you can, use a silicone muffin pan instead of a metal one. If you can’t, line your muffin cups with liners to ensure easy removal of your Keto cups once they are set. You can also get fancy with other candy molds. This recipe is best suited to simple shapes without much surface detail. Hearts or stars would be particularly nice!
  • If you are using the freezer to speed up your hardening process, take your Keto cups out of the mold when they are still frozen but allow them to soften before enjoying. This ensures that you will have both a good shape and a good texture.
  • If you have time and you’re looking for a challenge, try tempering the chocolate. Tempering is a process that organizes the structure of the chocolate and gives it a shiny finish. One big advantage of tempering is that the chocolate won’t immediately melt at room temperature or in your fingers. Instructions for tempering can be found here.

Liven Up Your Keto Cup Filling

There’s nothing wrong with coconut butter filling, but there’s also nothing stopping you from making an assortment of fillings with only a few tiny tweaks to the basic recipe. Why not make a Keto cup box of chocolates so you have a fat bomb for every occasion?

  • Luscious Lemon – Add a teaspoon of lemon zest or a few drops of lemon extract to the coconut butter before melting.
  • Raspberry Ripple – Add a tablespoon of freeze-dried raspberry powder to the liquid filling before freezing.
  • Lavender Love – Add a half teaspoon of lavender to the coconut butter before melting, strain when melted and proceed with recipe as written.
  • Sea Salt Surprise – Sprinkle a few flakes of kosher salt on top of the finished cups before chilling.
  • Chili and Chocolate – Add a quarter teaspoon of cayenne pepper, or more to taste, to the melted chocolate before pouring.

More Recipes Featuring MCT Oil

MCT oil can be used to give a nutrient boost to many Keto recipes! Read on for just a few.
