The "Do You Like Reese's" Protein Ball

Thursday, August 29, 2013

If the answer is "no" to my question then there's a pretty little x at the top of your screen, feel free to press it. But who am I kidding, we all love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! With this recipe I'm going to give you just the base recipe. It's up to you to decide what to put into these bad boys! I put in 2 tbs chocolate chips...I know, I know but how can you have peanut butter with no chocolate?! You just can't. These are no bake so the combinations are endless. Feel free to substitute the peanut butter for your favorite nut butter. Throw in some coconut, maybe some fruit! Let me know what you decide because these are amazing! I have to tell myself, "Moderation Aspen, moderation!" to keep from inhaling one after another. ;)
