Keto Mint Chocolate Cream Cups

I set out to make a St. Patrick’s Day Dessert Recipe.  I knew that I wanted them to be similar to the Keto Coconut Cream Pie Cups because they were such a hit!  So that is what I did. 

Except…. the crust is different, the cream is different and the whipped cream is different.  BUT I used the same cups!  So, there’s that!

The flavors throughout this entire dessert just flow beautifully and melt into one another in perfection.

I really like single serving desserts.  I think they stay fresher and there is less time needed when you just want to pull a little treat out of the fridge.  

You don’t have to cut anything, slice anything, partition anything.  You just pop the top off and are on your way!

So whether you are making these for a fun keto St. Patrick’s day dessert or simply because you want to enjoy a keto mint dessert – be prepared for to discover your new favorite dessert.

Kitchen Essentials

You’ll need some sort of jars.  I used 5 2 ounce jars like these.   You can really use just about anything. 

I like the mason jars because you can screw to top on, pop them in the fridge and they will keep their freshness!

You will certainly need hand beaters for whipped cream!  You can’t make homemade whipped cream without hand beaters!

Keto Mint Cream Cup Flavors

Obviously mint and chocolate were the main flavors that I was going for in this recipe.  

The crust is a chocolate based crust flavored mainly with unsweetened cocoa powder.  A hint of coffee really adds to the fullness of the chocolate flavor.  But it is subtle enough that unless you know it is in there, you probably won’t be able to pinpoint it.  

Peppermint and mint flavor/extracts are my new favorite flavors to play with!  I got them when I went to the store looking for caramel extract (which I did not find), but came home with peppermint, mint flavors and lemon flavor.  I made my first peppermint dessert for Valentine’s day!  You can check it out here : Peppermint Mug Cake.

How to Toast Almond Flour

If you’ve been following my recipes recently, you’ll know that my new favorite thing (besides peppermint of course) is toasted almond flour. 

I’ve used it for desserts like coconut cream pie cups and graham cracker pie crust

I’ve also used it for things like cauliflower tots, tuna casserole and beef casserole.

How To Make Keto Mint Cream Cups

Chocolate Crust

In a large bowl, add almond flour, cocoa, monkfruit, and coffee. Mix until well blended. Add in the melted butter and vanilla and keep mixing!

Keto Mint Cream Cups

Fold with a spatula until all chunks are dissolved.

No need to bake!

Diving into 5 and put into the bottom of 5 2 ounce mason jars. Pat down.

Keto Mint Cream Cups

Set aside.

Filling

Add 2 egg yolks to a small bowl, beat, and set aside.

In a medium sauce pan, warm heavy whipping cream over medium-medium-high heat until hot but not boiling.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix monkfruit, almond flour, salt, and xanthan gum.

Once the heavy whipping cream mixture is hot, add monkfruit mixture.

Continue stirring until sauce begins to think. This could take anywhere from 2-5 minutes depending on the heat. It will start to lightly bubble and that is perfect. Keep stirring until slightly thicker.

Temper egg yolks: Pour a small amount of hot mixture into the egg bowl. Mix quickly and add back into hot mixture. Continue stirring for another few minutes as sauce thickens even more.
