Equipment

  • 8 x 8 inch pan

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (Jif No Sugar Added)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter - melted
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar (Swerve Brown Sugar replacement)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups powdered sugar Truvia
  • 10-12 oz Russel Stover Sugar Free chips

Instructions
 

  • Line 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, stir together peanut butter, melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla and salt, until sugar is dissolved.
  • Press the mixture into the prepared pan. Press it to flatten into about 1/2 inch thick layer.
  • Place in freezer until firm enough for cutting.
  • Line a tray with parchment paper, and with a tree cookie cutter, cut out the trees and place them in the freezer for 45-60 minutes until completely firm.
  • Melt the chocolate, and using a fork, cover each tree completely. Since the peanut butter trees soften fast, it is recommended to take a few trees from the freezer at a time.
  • Place chocolate covered trees on the parchment lined tray and refrigerate until chocolate has set.
