& The Locklaces Winners!!

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great week! I know a few of you will be having an even better week once you find out that you just won a pair of Lock Laces! πŸ™‚ But before we get to the winners, let talk a little bit about my favorite candy in the world…..Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! Yes, ever since I can remember these delicious chocolate and peanut butter candies were always my favorite! I could eat them by the bag full….no joke! My favorite way to eat them was frozen too! The chocolate shell would have a hard crunch while the peanut butter center was still slightly soft……OK, I am beginning to drool now! haha Although I do still enjoy these delicious candies on occasion, it is a very rare occasion. Travel back a few months when Quest came out with their PB Crave Cups, which are protein PB Cups. It got my mind thinking…if they could make a protein packed PB Cup, why can’t I?! Peanut flour is loaded with protein! OH YES!! Mission accomplished! Not only are these PB Truffles delicious, but they are also healthy, packed with protein and VERY simple to make! How can you go wrong with that??!! So, if you are ever in need for a Reese’s fix (i.e, Easter on Sunday for many of us), yet you still want to keep it clean, I HIGHLY recommend you whip up a batch of these! You won’t be disappointed! Enjoy! πŸ™‚

  • Definitely Kit Kats all the way! Hoping over Easter to get some extra exercise in as I've been lacking in motivation of late.

  • Woohoo! Thanks so much! My favorite candy is definitely M&Ms. I wonder if there's a way to make those healthy...? ;-)

  • SO EASY! You're saying I only need Peanut Flour and Protein Powder--and chocolate, of course?! Who knew? Thanks for sharing! :)

    Mmmmm- these look really good and such wonderful nutritional stats! I'm not a chocolate fan much but I could pour a drizzle of maple syrup on these and be in love! (I always loved to mix together peanut butter and maple syrup as a kid and make sandwiches!)

    Yum!! I don't like my vanilla protein other than when it's in my shake (ie it's tastes funny when baked or used in recipes.) What vanilla protein did you use? I have the chocolate hemp powder you recommended for your chocolate donuts. Do you think that would be good here for a chocolate version?

  • Easy and uses ingredients I have!! Love it when it works out that way.

    Omg thank you for posting this recipe!! haha I am a huge fan of Reese's. I could live without candy but not without PB/chocolate... I think I will try this recipe this weekend :)

  • I'm fairly certain I will be making these tonight. I wonder if I could add some chocolate chips in the batter and skip the chocolate on top (out of pure laziness). Hmmm....

  • Oh yum! These sound amazing. My favourite candy would probably have to be chocolate - I have the most ridiculous chocolate stash filled with different types of Dark Lindt chocolate (my favourite!) but I also really like licorice (it's just a challenge to find GF and soy free licorice!) My favourite sweet flavour combination would probably have to be peanut butter and bananas - they are made for eachother! As for Easter, today is Good Friday in Australia and we're celebrating with a seafood filled dinner party with family and friends - and then on Sunday we're having an easter bbq/get together with some other friends!

  • Oh my goodness those look so good! What's the difference between Peanut Flour and PB2?
    March 29, 2013
  • I've...never had a frozen Reese's. And now I have no idea why not. Because that sounds like heaven.
