  • Line a mini muffin pan with 12 mini muffin liners.
  • Place the chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave safe measuring cup and microwave on half power for 30 second intervals until smooth and melted.
  • Once melted, pour a THIN layer of the chocolate on the bottom of each cup. Place into the freezer for 5-10 minutes to harden.
  • While they harden, mix together the peanut butter and vanilla protein powder. It might be easiest to use your hands! Roll them into 12 1 tsp sized balls.
  • Once chilled, put one peanut butter ball in each cup and press out flat, leaving a little rim around the edges where you can see the chocolate underneath.
  • Fill the cups with the rest of the remaining chocolate.
  • Cover and place in the fridge for about 30 mins-1 hour to harden. **


**right out of the fridge these will be a little hard, so let them sit at room temp for a few minutes before eating
