Frozen Protein Peanut Butter Bites ingredient breakdown.

These are super simple to make, let’s take a look at some of the ingredients! 

Light Peanut Butter – I prefer using light, but you can use any type or style you like! 

Vanilla Protein Powder – I think vanilla is the best but again you could use any flavour. 

Greek Yogurt – A great binder and a sneaky little extra dose of protein. 

Roasted Peanuts – Not 100% necessary, but it adds more toasted nutty flavours and texture. 

Rice Krispies– Helps keep their shape and adds a bit of bulk. 

Chocolate Chips – You could use any chocolate to coat them in. Dark, milk, white whatever you want!

How to properly melt chocolate.

The best way to melt chocolate (in my opinion) is to use a double boiler. If you don’t know what that is, no worries let’s get into it! 

A double boiler is just a bowl set over a pot of simmering water. It’s great for melting chocolate, cheese, making sauces and a ton of other uses. 

Set a medium sized over medium low heat. Add a few inches of water. You don’t want there to be so much water that it touches the bottom of the bowl, there should be a decent amount of space. You want the steam of the water to heat the bowl, not the water itself. 

Make sure you have a good seal over the pot, add your chocolate, keep your eye on it and stir often. 

It’s also a great way to keep melted ingredients warm. Keep your eye in the heat, you don’t want the water to boil (even tho it’s called a double boiler – idk I didn’t name it).

Melting chocolate in the microwave.

If you don’t want to use a double boiler don’t worry, you can also use a microwave. 

Make sure you use a microwave safe container. Add your chocolate in and nuke it for 15 seconds at a time. Take it out, check that it’s melting, stir and nuke for another 15 seconds. 

Make sure to not “overcook” your chocolate, it can almost split, clump together and become lumpy.
