I love peanut butter. Once I went to a family dinner and someone made a peanut butter pie that I still think about it. That is why I decided to make these keto peanut butter cheesecake mousse desserts for our Valentine’s Day dinner.
I should have made something my husband would like but I’m much more of a sweets person so I thought he would forgive me. 🙂 They are super easy to make and I even put a little chocolate heart for some Valentine’s Day decoration. They are small but filling and have only 3.2g net carbs!

How to make low carb chocolate hearts
These chocolate hearts are really easy to make. You can see the photos below of how I did it.
- Take half of the small Moser’s dark chocolate bar and melted in the microwave for about 1 minute. Take it out and mix it well until everything is melted.
- Then on a wax paper covered baking tray use a little spoon and put a little dollop on the wax paper.
- Then taking the spoon and push the melted chocolate up on the sides and then dragged the bottom down to form a heart.
- Freeze them for 5 minutes and you are good to go!
What type of chocolate should I use?
I like this Moser 85% dark chocolate I get at Aldi. Each little bar like the one below has only 6 net carbs. I used 1/2 of the bar and got 4 hearts made. So that means each heart has roughly 0.8g net carbs. You can use any chocolate you want but remember to count the carbs.
Below you can see that I also shaved the chocolate with a peeler and I also have Lilly’s chocolate chips. You can decorate with any of these things if you wish. I liked the shavings and hearts the best.
How to make the keto peanut butter cheesecake?
First let your cream cheese soften on the counter. Then add it to a mixing bowl along with the heavy cream, sweetener, peanut butter and peanut butter powder. Cream all the ingredients together with a hand mixer and you are done.
If you want you can pipe them into a little dessert dish. I used to use 4 oz mason jars but my husband took all of mine to put in his homemade chili powders. The ones below are 3.5 ounce dishes. I found these on Amazon that are similar.
Where I got the ingredients
I got most of the ingredients at Aldi. The chocolate bars, peanut butter powder, unsweetened peanut butter, cream cheese and heavy cream. The Swerve sweetener and Lily’s chocolate chips I buy on Amazon.
Refrigerate these until you are ready to eat them and they keep for a few days. My batch made 5 of this size, so use that as a guide for your containers. Remember they are very rich and filling so less is more.
I hope you like these keto peanut butter cheesecake cups as much as I do. I loved them!! For most of the ingredients for this recipe you can find them on my Amazon shop here. The nutritional information for 1 serving is:
274 cals / 25.8g fat / 5.4g carbs / 2.2g fiber / 5.5g protein = 3.2g net carbs*
Using 1 Moser 85% dark chocolate bars, each heart has roughly 0.8g net carbs.
*Note I do not include the Swerve sweetener in the calculation as it has no carbs nor calories. Also I did not include the chocolate in the mousse calculation either.
Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake Mousse

- 3 oz cream cheese, softened
- 3/4 cup heavy cream, cold
- 1/4 cup peanut butter, no sugar **
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter powder **
- 4 tablespoons Swerve sweetener
- dark chocolate (optional) **
How to make the peanut butter mousse.
Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and with a hand mixer cream together until the mousse is thick and creamy.
Spoon or pipe into dessert cups and refrigerate until ready to eat.
How to make the chocolate hearts.
Melt 1/2 of a low carb chocolate bar in the microwave for 30 seconds. Take it out and stir until it's all melted.
On a wax paper covered cookie sheet, take a small spoon and place a small circle of chocolate on the paper. Take your spoon and move the chocolate up to make the top of the heart. Then take the spoon and drag the chocolate at the bottom down to a point to form a heart. Do this with all of the chocolate. This should make 4 or 5 hearts.
** I used Aldi Simply Nature peanut butter and peanut butter powder. Both are just peanuts and no added sugar. I also used Moser's 85% dark chocolate bars as they are low in carbs. Each small bar has 6g net carbs.
