PB2 is a powdered peanut butter that contains less fat than regular peanut butter.
Our sweetener of choice is Sukrin 1 which is a natural, granulated sweetener (just like sugar) that has none of that horrible, artificial taste.
That being said, you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality, granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket including Canderel Sugarly and Natvia.
If you’re using powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners can weigh less.
You’ll also need to use a tin that’s about 35 x 24 cm for the sponge to make these Snickers Mini Rolls.

This Snickers Mini Rolls is perfect if you’re following a calorie controlled diet, and fits well with any one of the major diet plans such as Weight Watchers.
As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day. Obviously, if your goal is to lose weight then you might want to adjust these slightly! You can read more about these recommendations on the NHS website.
Grease and line a shallow sided baking tray (about 8″ x 11.5″) and preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and sukrin 1 – keep whisking until very frothy and light, for around 5 minutes.
Gently fold in the sifted flour and cocoa until fully incorporated.
Pour the mixture into the lined tin, making sure that it is a completely even layer – as this is a fatless sponge, it does not self level and therefore you need to make sure it it level and even.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Mix the P2B with approximately 8 teaspoons of water until it is a good consistency for drizzling. Stir in the salted caramel flavouring and mix well.
Take out of the oven and turn onto a clean teatowel. While still warm, drizzle over the P2B mix, saving a little to use at the end. Drizzle over the Choc Shot.
Cut the rectangle into two (cutting long edge in half). Roll each of the new rectangles up, starting at edge you’ve just cut. This needs to be done before the cake cools too much or it’ll firm up too much to roll.
Cut each roll into 3 pieces and, with the left over P2B, just drizzle onto the ends of the rolls in a swirl to bring out the shape of the roll. Serve with a big cuppa!

What do you mean by choc shot please
HollyMonday 10th May 2021
Hey Allison, Choc Shot is a a chocolate syrup made by the brand Sweet Freedom it’s made from naturally occurring fruit sugars so is lower in calories than regular chocolate syrup. You will find it online and in a lot of supermarkets. Hope that helps!
StephanieThursday 21st February 2019
I really can’t understand step 8? What do you mean cut long ways in half?
AshWednesday 6th February 2019
Hi, what is the salted Carmel flavouring? Thanks
LouiseMonday 15th October 2018
Sorry if this has been asked but can I use PBfit instead of PB2?? Picked up the wrong one and didn’t realise til too late. Thanks x x
Ryan HillSunday 16th September 2018
You mentioned using baking parchment rather hannah greelse proof paper. What’s the difference? I thought they were the same?
MeganSaturday 18th August 2018
I just made these and used 7 grams of cocoa. They’re very pale. Your photo looks like they’re chocolatey and mine look like there’s none in it. Did I do something wrong?
John QuinlanSunday 17th September 2017
Just made these but no idea how they taste. The peanut butter was runny but i hope will thicken as it cools. Out 1st time of tray and flat and 1 piece but ong how thin!!!
Claire StoneSunday 6th August 2017
I just made these. Took two attempts and the second attempt was almost as strenuous as the first.
The first time, I made it with greasing proofing the try (as per the instructions). Took it out of the oven, and couldn’t get it off the grease proof paper. It’s so thin, you couldn’t even attempt to peel it off or get a knife between the sponge and the grease proof.
Second time, I decided to just do it straight in the tin, lower heat, less time. Again, really thin and stuck to the tray. This time I managed to get a thin cake knife to ever so slowly and delicately try to get between the tray and the sponge. Finally managed to get it off the tray (not without a few holes!). By that time it was cool and so not easy to roll.
Tastes nice, but a complete challenge to make – not sure it’s worth it.
Have I done something wrong – your picture looks like it should be thicker. I only had barely enough to cover the tray. Does it rise much in the oven?
Any tips would be helpful, as it *should* be such a quick recipe that I’d like to give it another go!
Emma TMonday 11th September 2017
It’s worth trying them on baking parchment rather than grease proof paper, or use an oven proof silicone tray or sheet.
Hope that helps!
CatherineThursday 27th July 2017
Where can you get the salted caramel favouring? Can’t wait to make these! Thank you
DennisTuesday 11th July 2017
is there an alternative to PB2 for allergy sufferers please?
Rhian PhillipsSunday 11th June 2017
Iv just tried making this, took the cake out of the oven and it went in the bin! It was like mousse and wouldn’t come off the baking paper!
JSaturday 6th May 2017
Can I use Stevia instead of Sukrin? Same amount?
KateTuesday 9th May 2017
Sukrin is the same weight, sweetness and consistency as normal sugar so you use it like for like, unlike other sweeteners which are lighter and sweeter. This means you probably wouldn’t need as much. You can usually find conversion information on the website of the brand of sweetener you are using
VickyFriday 28th April 2017
What is choc shot?
RhianThursday 23rd March 2017
Can i use sukrin gold in place of sukrin 1? Thanks
KateSaturday 25th March 2017
Yes, you could probably use Sukrin Gold instead.
vicki fSaturday 4th February 2017
Mmm just made this. Had to tweak it though. I used plain flour with baking powder, I used a choc fudge options as no caramel flavouring and used peanut hottie powder. Tastes lovely but think it needs more sweetener (I used canderel for baking).
Emma TTuesday 12th September 2017
So glad you enjoyed it!
ChristieFriday 27th January 2017
Can I use something chocolatey other than peanut butter
ChristineFriday 27th January 2017
What do ou mean by “choc shot”? Thanks
Jemma ColganWednesday 10th April 2019
I picked up some Peanut Hottie peanut butter powder is that the same as PB2? Calories are 51 per 12g serving or 427 per 100g. What are the values of PB2?
CateFriday 12th April 2019
PB2 is 45 calories for 12g so Peanut Hottie is a little higher.
Hope that helpS! 🙂
LauraFriday 20th January 2017
Do you use the same amount of powdered sweetener if not using the Sukrin? Also do you have to use salted caramel essence? xx
KateSaturday 21st January 2017
You use Sukrin in exactly the same way as you would normal sugar, it weigh the same and behaves the same way as sugar. You would have to check the specific sweetener that you are using to see what the sugar to sweetener ratio is. You can usually find this on the website for the specific sweetener
ThereseMonday 9th January 2017
What about using cashew butter ? Or maybe almond and coconut? Meridian brand.
HelenSaturday 24th September 2016
They look fab but I hate peanut butter! Can anyone suggest an alternative?? Thanks
BredaSaturday 17th September 2016
Holland and Barrett sell powder peanut butter too
SarahMonday 12th September 2016
