Recipe Tips for High-Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Adjust the softness: You can adjust the sweetness of the chocolate mixture by adding more or fewer chocolate chips.

Get the consistency right: Gradually add water to achieve the desired thickness when making the peanut butter filling. You want the filling to be thick enough to hold its shape but still be spreadable.

Cool the cups: Let the peanut butter cups cool in the freezer or refrigerator for the recommended amount of time to ensure the chocolate sets properly. This will prevent them from becoming too soft or melty when bitten.

Get creative with toppings: Sprinkle crushed nuts or coconut flakes over your peanut butter cups before they harden for an extra layer of flavor and texture.

Put away your cups refrigerate for up to 10 days!
