#RECIPEFRIDAY: Chocolate Protein Covered PB2 Bites!

Good morning everyone and...

Happy #RECIPEFRIDAY!


As this is officially my first edition of #RECIPEFRIDAY on the blog...

I thought I'd start by sharing something sweet with you all!

Plus...

It's the beginning of the weekend so what better way to get it going than to...

Enjoy some of these little delights!


Now of course...

As #RECIPEFRIDAY calls for me to share my favourite recipe of the week...

I'm thrilled to give you the ins on how to make these bites of goodness!


And trust me...

It's simple! (Look it, you're talking to me here lol)

So enough talking...

Let's get cookin'!

    Honestly...

    They are so delish! (And they satisfy that PB and Chocolate craving I so often have!)


    Now, on top of all of this yumminess...

    You can even...

    Dip some fruit in the remaining protein FUdge if you've got some leftover! (Or, enjoy it whichever way you prefer...with a spoon perhaps? lol)

    Needless to say, it's...

    Mmm Mmm good!

    And...

    Just when you thought I was done...

    I have another way in which you can utilize the same ingredients to make...

    Cookies!

      11. I've been wanting to try out PB2. I tried that Better'n Peanut Butter stuff, and it actually worked ok in baked goods, but I couldn't get into it on it's own. I've heard a lot of good things about PB2 though so I'd definitely be interested in giving it a shot!

      12. LOVE it! I am soo into PB2 too. I have a question though, for the cookies. When you spoon the fudge into the cookie dough mixture, do you mix the two together and then spoon them onto the cookie sheet?

      13. So fun!! I think that we're going to go get our Christmas tree this weekend...or at least get the decorations from storage!! The kids are itching to start putting things up.
