Protein Peanut Butter Eggs!


Ummm YES PLEASE!!!! I will be making these!!!

Protein Peanut Butter Eggs

Ingredients:
1-1/3 cup peanut butter or vanilla protein powder
1 cup smooth peanut butter
Wilton Chocolate Candy Melts

Directions:
In a medium mixing bowl, combine peanut butter and protein powder. Mix until a dough forms. The peanut butter filling should be playdough-like in consistency, not sticky. If your dough is a bit sticky, add a touch more protein powder.

Form the mixture into egg shapes. I used approximately 2 tablespoons of filling for some of the eggs, and others (not pictured) were smaller. If you want a huge Easter egg, then go for it!

Pop the eggs into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to dipping.

Prepare the chocolate for dipping: Place the Wilton Chocolate Candy Melts in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power for one minute. Stir. Continue microwaving in 30 second intervals at 50% power until chocolate is completely melted and smooth. (Directions are on the bag.)

Coat peanut butter eggs with chocolate: Working with one egg at a time, place top side down in bowl of chocolate. Use a fork to flip the egg over and cover the bottom with chocolate. Place on wire rack, parchment or waxed paper to harden. Repeat with remaining eggs.

Should you wish to be creative and decorate your eggs, let your imagination run wild! I used a combination of chocolate drizzle – messy is good! – and some purchased candy flower decorations. “Glue” the decorations to the eggs with a tiny bit of melted chocolate.

Store your chocolate peanut butter eggs in the refrigerator or freezer.
