YUP! They are officially upon us peeps! The merry making, the turkey basting, crazed shopping frenzy and THE EATING!!!!!
We ALL do it! Its just part of the Holiday traditions. You go to a friends house, an office party, family get togethers and we eat. You have to bring something lovely, heart warming and delicious! Something that you made and something that everyone will OOOOH and AHHHHH over and ask you for the recipe.
OKAY! So I totally have you covered, I have made something that is both delicious and not going to ruin your healthy goals completely. A rich decadent treat that is sure you please all the peanut butter lovers out there!
DARK CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER TRUFFLES!!!!
So here are the steps to your mouth watering holiday treat!
You will need:
2 Scoops of Lean Body for Her Peanut Protein
1/2 scoop of Lean Body for Her Vanilla Protein
3 TBSP of water
1/2 Cup of Dark chocolate chips ( look for the high cacao %)
And yes thats really all you need
First take your chocolate chips and melt them down, I have a nifty mini crock pot thats perfect. You can microwave or use a double boiler too. Just be ready to dip the truffles as soon as your chocolate is melted if you use the other ways of melting.
You will get a rather sticky version of Peanut butter.
Next you take two teaspoons and scoop them onto a sheet of wax paper. I tried just using my hands to shape the balls but this is sticky stuff and you end up licking more off your hands than actually get onto the sheet (pretty fun test I must say).
Now you should have about a dozen quarter sized blobs. Put them in the freezer for 5 minutes to set up and get firm.
Take them out and in your hands roll between the palms till you have a nice little ball. Now you just drop into your melted chocolate and cover completely. Fish the ball out with a spoon and place on the wax paper. Once all your little ball of goodness are covered in dark chocolate you put in fridge to set up.
They are best served chilled to avoid being super messy and melty. But TRUST ME on this one, you will never buy another peanut butter cup again! Especially when you see this:

Now that is a treat that anyone can live with!!!!
Now go forth, be merry and EAT!
