Frozen Peanut Butter Cups
Happy Freakin' Friday! This week felt like it went by in 3 seconds and my to-do lists got longer, not shorter...can you relate?
We finally got a full time day care spot starting on May 1st and this mama could not be happier. I feel like the the waiting game was beyond stressful... "Did they forget about us?" "Maybe I'll call again for the 14th time" "Maybe I'll bribe them!" - all my thoughts to all 8 places we were waiting on.
One place got us in for drop in days a few months ago, so at random they would call and I'd pack him up and we'd both be the happiest campers. My goal is 3 days per week, but pay for the full time so it's there if and as needed. Ya'll working from home with a WILD toddler is no joke. Last night's business meeting was proof of that in a nutshell while he drew on me, head butted me, and yelled at all my zoom guests.
Let's get to it though, the frozen peanut butter cups
Mix the following ingredients together, then form into the bottom of a muffin liner and freeze for 15ish minutes
- 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
- 1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 cup natural peanut butter
Then remove from the freezer and top with melted chocolate. The easiest version of this is to melt 1/3 cup dark chocolate with 1 teaspoon coconut oil in the microwave for 40 seconds and stir well or until melted completely. Then top the bases off with chocolate.
I added a sprinkle of pink salt to the top of each one.
This recipe made 9 delicious frozen snacks, one of which I devoured immediately before it was even frozen yet haha.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
