One hour before starting the recipe put the peanut butter and the cream cheese outside of the fridge, so they can reach room temperature before you start cooking. When ready mix them both in a bowl till you get a nice clear brown dough. Optionally you can add some chocolate chips to give a harder texture to your dough. Scoop the dough and place the balls on a baking sheet that you will place in your fridge for at least a couple hours. And you’re done! Enjoy your cheesecake keto fat bombs!
