Tips & Tricks

  • Instead of white chocolate, you can consider combining Keto Protein Powder (Birthday Cake Flavor) with almond milk to make a thick paste. Works really well and adds lots of protein to these adorable snacks.
  • If you can’t find sugar-free eyes and mouth candy, make your own using sugar-free almond bark and black fondant. Another option is using black food coloring instead of the fondant and applying with a toothpick.
  • Store these cookies in the fridge once fully frozen and eat within 5 days.
