I remember these around fall as a kid! It would be at Halloween parties and of course at Christmas time celebrations!!
To say these are good is not in equality to the actual monumental taste these have!! The powdered erithrytol seals the deal so do not skip it!
Order some online, or grind some of your own with a coffeegrinder, but dont skip that step😁
On the nut butter, it traditionally uses peanut butter, which you can absolutely use, but we have peanut allergies so I went with 1/4 almond butter and 1/4 cashew butter. It amazingly smelled and tasted reminiscent of peanut butter!! Soo good!
Also on the butter and coconut oil…..use both or use all coconut for dairy free….or all butter for coconut free. It is a forgiving recipe that you can customize!
Keto Muddy Buddies
1 bag plain pork rinds (3.5 – 4oz)
1/2 cup ANY nut butter (use a combo of 2 kinds or all of 1)
3 Tbsp coconut oil
4 Tbsp butter
12 drops liquid stevia, OR 1/4 tsp powdered stevia
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 to 2 tsp powdered erithrytol/or swerve confectioners
Pour your bag of pork rinds in a large bowl. Set aside.
In a small saucepan put all ingredients in and warm up on medium heat. Whisk until melted and all incorporated.
Slowly pour half over the pork rinds in the bowl. Stir and fold with a spatula/scraper or wide spoon.
Repeat. Pour the rest and stir/fold well.
Spread it all out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silpat. Foil will not work well as when you try to remove,bits of foil tear off, eww. Get some parchment, its worth it!
Put into the freezer for 20 minutes.
Remove from freezer and start lifting the parchment or silpat and gently work the muddy buddies loose. Once loose, sift 1 to 2 tsp powdered erithrytol over all. Use a spatula to stir/fold them a bit.
I stored it in the original bag they came in, or use a gallon zip top bag.
Store in the fridge.
Carb count is determined by which nut butter you use. Figure that out and you have your calculations since the rest is carb free!
