PB2 Peanut Butter Footballs, Kim's
number of servings: 16

Adam likes them because they remind him of eating cookie dough (which he used to do by the tub-full before he lost 80 lbs). I like them because, well, because they're peanut butter and chocolate. What's not to like? TIP: Make a small amount. They're dangerous.


ingredients

¼ cup water

Directions

In a mixing bowl place PB2, Whey Low Powdered Sugar and water. Mix until well blended and a stiff dough forms. coop out 1 teaspoon of dough. Shape into balls and pinch the ends (if you are forming footballs). 

Melt chocolate in glass measuring cup in microwave. Spritz 1 spray from oil mister into the chocolate and mix well. This keeps the chocolate thinner. Push the sharp end of a wooden skewer into the bottom of the football and dip the top into the chocolate. Make sure you drag the top and sides of the football along the side of the measuring cup to remove excess chocolate. This is to give it a thin coating and keep the calories down.

Place in freezer for 5 minutes. Remove and enjoy!

Notes

Use carob chips for dairy free.

Without chocolate coating the dough is 25 calories each. 

Variations

If the chocolate taste is overwhelming you can use half PB2 and half PB2 Chocolate. The consistency and calories are the same so you can interchange them.

You can decorate with icing, white chocolate or just sprinkling with powdered PB2, finely ground nuts or Organic Reduced Fat Shredded Coconut
