This recipe comes together by first freezing the peanut butter whipped cream base then coating each in rich ganache.
- Make the fluffy peanut butter base. In a large mixing bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form. Add the vanilla extract and peanut butter to the whipped cream, then mix with a fork or whisk until combined.
- Freeze to set. Place the mixture into a quart size baggie. Cut a small hole in the tip. Line a muffin pan or use silicone molds. Squeeze the mixture out of the bag into the molds. Place in the freezer for at least 1-2 hours to set.
- Make the ganache. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the heavy whipping cream until it boils. Add the bakers chocolate and stir in until completely melted. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until combined. Let the mixture come to room temperature.
- Add the chocolate coating. Remove the frozen whips from the freezer and dip each one into the chocolate to coat the bottom. Place the whips on a tray lined with parchment paper and freeze.
Your chocolate peanut butter fat bombs are ready to enjoy! Store them in a covered container in the freezer and serve frozen.
Can Cool Whip Be Used?
You may be tempted to use a pre-made non-dairy whipped topping instead of making your own whipped cream. In fact, I’ve seen similar recipes for low-carb cool whip desserts.
But is cool whip keto?
Technically, it’s low in carbs. There are 3 total carbs in a serving size of 2 tablespoons.
Heavy whipping cream doubles in volume when you whip it. So you need about double the amount of cool whip as heavy whipping cream. This means you would need about 3 cups, which is 48 tablespoons.
That would come out to 72 carbs from cool whip alone in this recipe, or 12 carbs per serving. So cool whip is not ideal for the peanut butter whipped cream if you’re trying to keep your carbs low.
Cool whip is also full of ingredients that should be avoided. In fact, the first two ingredients are hydrogenated oil and high fructose corn syrup!
If you are not strict keto and want to dip some berries in cool whip every once in awhile, you’re probably okay. But it should only be enjoyed in strict moderation.
Macros Per Serving
The base for these keto peanut butter fat bombs is so easy to make. You only need three ingredients: heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and peanut butter! It’s so delicious, you’ll probably be licking it off the beaters.
And of course, the ganache adds another level of decadence.
So is this combination of chocolate and peanut butter whipped cream keto friendly?
When I make this recipe, I divide everything into a regular sized muffin pan, which gives me six large servings.
At that size, each frozen whip has about 260 calories, 4 grams of total carbohydrates, and 0 grams of fiber. You also get 26 grams of fat per piece!

Chocolate dipped peanut butter fat bombs
Frozen whipped cream treats are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth on keto. The fat content will help you feel full and satisfied, and you can make some amazing flavor combinations.
These keto peanut butter fat bombs with chocolate ganache are an absolute dream. The frozen creaminess has such a wonderful texture while the chocolate provides a sturdy bottom layer that will melt in your mouth.
Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Fat Bombs
- 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream or coconut cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoon peanut butter
- In a mixing bowl, whip the 1-½ cups heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form.
- Add the vanilla extract and peanut butter. Mix with fork or whisk until combined.
- Place into a quart size baggie. Cut a small hole in the tip.
- Line a muffin pan or use silicone molds. Squeeze out mixture in muffin molds. (I used a large muffin pan and made 6 large whips. You can also do this with mini muffin pans.)
- Freeze for at least 1-2 hour.
To make ganache:
- In a microwave safe bowl, microwave heavy whipping cream until it boils ~30s.
- Add bakers chocolate to heavy whipping cream to melt (I opt to not heat the chocolate as to not burn it)
- Once chocolate is melted, add the remaining ingredients. Mix until combined.
- Let mixture come to room temperature then dip each frozen whip into to coat the bottom. Place on a parchment lined tray and freeze. Store in covered container in the freezer.
