These are a few of my favourite things….. chocolate… peanut butter… rice crispies… nom nom nom nom nom nom nom nom
Sometimes it can seem super hard to contain yourself during the holidays, and I mean, it is good to take a break from the strict eating and enjoy life.. however it might be easy to get carried away…especially at Easter when we have a lot of chocolate in the house.. and then it continues to be found over the next few weeks hidden in discrete places that the kids did not find… dangerous! So I like to prep for this by having some heathy snacks on hand that will be accessible when I find myself eyeing those solid chocolate milk chocolate bunnies.. I mean just eating the ear is fine.. but then continuing and stopping at half the body.. now that just isn’t healthy. I am not a binge eater… but when it comes to chocolate, I lose all will power. So I have created these “healthified” chocolate peanut butter crunchy bunnies because A. they’re cute B. they’re delish! I also based it on a treat I make around christmas time and am absolutely obsessed with.. but it is definitely not healthy, so I decided to modify that recipe and add in some protein for an added touch! For a quick video on this recipe head over to @cash_creations to see a video of the process of how to make these yummy bunnies!
Cash Creations: Chocolate Peanut Butter Bunnies
Prep Time: 15 mins
- 2 TBSP of Peanut Butter
- 1 scoop of Vanilla protein
- 1/2 cup of rice crispies (I use Nature’s Path Organic Crispy Rice)
- 1 TBSP of maple syrup
- 1 Tsp Sea Salt
- 1 cup of dark chocolate chips
- 1 TBSP melted coconut oil
Here’s how you do it…
- Heat up some water on the stove using a double boiler. Include your dark chocolate and your coconut oil and stir until it is completely smooth. Remove from heat. (modified version would be to combine and put in the microwave until it is melted)
- Pour a thin layer of chocolate into each silicon bunny- try to spread it out so that it covers all of the bunny and goes up the sides of each mould.
- Pop in the freezer for about 15 minutes/until you’re finished making the next set of ingredients.
- In a food processor or using a spoon and pressing down, crush your rice crispies down so they’re crumbly.
- In a separate bowl add peanut butter and protein, mix together
- Once mixed add in the maple syrup and sea salt, mix until combined.
- Add in the rice crispies and stir until it is equally combined.
- Roll about TSP of your mixture into small balls.
- Remove your mould from the freezer and place the peanut butter dough inside each of your silicon bunnies. Spread out to cover the entire bunny.
- Cover the peanut butter filling with another scoop of your dark chocolate so that the entire mould is filled.
11. Place back in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until the bunnies are nice and firm. Pop out of your mould and devour!! Store in the freezer to keep them intact! They will melt so eat them very quickly 😉
