Yield: Makes 8 cups
 
Ingredients
  • 2 x Simply Lite Milk Chocolate Bars (100 grams each bar) (Or your favorite sugar-free chocolate bar)
  • 1 scoop (1/4 cup) whey protein, vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 20 drops vanilla stevia (I used NuNaturals)
  • ¼ cup natural smooth peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Break up 1 of the chocolate bars and melt over LOW heat in a small pot. While its starting to melt, make sure you stir frequently. Once its just about melted, pull off the heat and keep stirring until the last of the pieces melt down.
  2. Spoon the melted chocolate into your silicone molds. Place in the freezer until it hardens.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the protein powder and 1 Tbsp milk. Once its the consistency of a paste, add the other tablespoon of milk.  Add the stevia drops.  Mixture will be runny.
  4. To the protein mixture, add your peanut butter. You'll want the peanut butter to be room temp, or it will be hard to mix it (also depends on the brand, I find some easier to stir than others).
  5. Once the chocolate has hardened in the silicone molds, pull them out of the freezer, and using a teaspoon measuring spoon, place 1 tsp of the peanut butter mixture on each of the chocolate cups. Press down so it covers the whole surface of the chocolate.
  6. Then, melt the other bar of chocolate, and once melted, spoon on top of the peanut butter mixture.  Return to the freezer and allow to fully harden (at least an hour).
  7. Best stored in the freezer, and can be eaten directly from the freezer.
