A simple way to make an easy dessert gourmet! These bite sized dark chocolate strawberry mini desserts pop with flavor, thanks to a Betsy’s Best nut or seed butter. Change up the nut butter to change the flavor and you will see the cinnamon and cardamom flavors add an interesting twist to this unique dish!
1 dark chocolate bar
5 large strawberries
4 Tbsp Betsy’s Best Gourmet Cashew Butter (or other Betsy’s Best nut or seed butter)
mint for garnish
Slice strawberries and break dark chocolate bar into bricks. Top the chocolate with the strawberry, add a teaspoon of Betsy’s Best and top with mint for garnish.
Ok, so the words bacon and healthy are not always used in the same sentence, but we thought this recipe was so different we just had to try it. We swapped turkey bacon instead of regular bacon to cut back on the fat. This sweet and salty cookie is a fun one to make and will have friends and family going back for more!
- 1 C Betsy’s Best Gourmet Peanut Butter
- 1/2 C white sugar
- 1/2 C brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 7 slices turkey bacon, cooked candied and diced
- 1/2 C dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 C maple syrup
To candy the bacon: When the bacon is 3/4 done add 1/3 c maple syrup and continue to cook until crispy. Reserve.
Cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat Betsy’s Best, sugars, and egg until combined. Add baking soda and salt and mix until smooth. Add chocolate and candied bacon. Form into balls and roll in sugar if desired. Arrange on cooking sheet and bake 8-10 min.
Because this is a sweet and salty treat be mindful to watch your portions. You can easily cut back on the sugar to 1/4 c of each the brown and white to reduce the sugar content if you wish. This will leave you with a rich peanut butter and bacon flavor with half the sugar!
And that is that! A pretty healthy peanut butter cookie that includes yummy dark chocolate and bacon. It’s really delicious.
