Happy Valentine's Day

Here are some special V-day treats that I made to spread the love. Were you lucky enough to get some? Either way, you really might want to consider making them. 3 grams of protein in each one! I won't mention the grams of fat, but when eating something like this, it really shouldn't even be a consideration.

Here's how it's done:

1 cup creamy peanut butter, divided
4 Tbs. butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
4 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 ounces each), coarsely chopped
Colored sprinkles, optional
With an electric mixer, combine 1/2 cup peanut butter, butter, confectioners' sugar and salt until smooth; set aside.
In a microwave, melt the chocolate chips, candy bars and remaining peanut butter; stir until smooth.
Drop teaspoonfuls of chocolate mixture into paper-lined miniature muffin cups. Top each with a scant teaspoonful of peanut butter mixture; top with another teaspoonful of chocolate mixture. Decorate with sprinkles if desired. Refrigerate until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 3 dozen.

So glad you told me about these today! I think they'll be the perfect addition to Miss Z's birthday party treats. :)
