Crispy Peanut Butter Toffee Protein Balls

Stumbling upon an absolutely mouth watering delicious recipe by starring into the wonders of my peanut butter cupboard. Yes, that is what happened on Monday.

Missing baking treats to share with the world I decided to take a break from work and see what magic I could come up with. Even though these aren't technically baked they are seriously dreamy. So if there are any of you out there that fear the oven, you cannot go wrong with these. All you PNB lovers out there, you have to try them!! Plus, they couldn't be easier!
 

Recipe

  • 1 cup puffed rice
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter (I used Meridian)
  • 10 Oz of milk or dark salted chocolate
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar (I used Sukrin)
  • 1 tbsp real butter
  • 1 scoop of vanilla whey (I used PhD Nutrition)
  • handful of toffee pieces

Method

To start, mix together the peanut butter and butter until combined. Then pop in the powdered sugar until fully mixed together (this literally tastes dreamy on its own!) 

Then add in the puffed rice and half the toffee pieces. Leave this concoction in the fridge for an hour to set. 

Then take out (and taste test, essential!) roll into balls and then put them back into the fridge for another hour.

Melt the chocolate (I used the microwave but you can use the hob!) This is when the best part happens, drop the balls one at a time into the melted chocolate covering completely and place on baking paper. Once you have covered them all, top with the rest of the toffee leave them to set (if you can) in the fridge before enjoying! Oh, and of course it would be rude not to lick the chocolate bowl right?

I really hope you love these as much as I do, they are a dangerous combination purely because you could eat the whole lot in one sitting!

If you make these, please make sure you post them up. I love to see!
