Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cups

I have already made Peanut Butter Protein Cups and Cookies and Cream Protein Cups.  I was in the mood for something chocolatey so I decided to try some Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cups!!! So good!!! 
Of course they are healthy and tasty!! 

Ingredients are super simple.
Chocolate protein powder, unsweetened almond milk, PB2, sugar free fat free chocolate pudding mix, and optional sweetener. 
*You can use any milk*
*Any type of peanut butter or nut butter will work*

We will mix up the peanut butter layer first.  If using regular peanut butter, just melt it slightly.  I prefer using PB2.
Mix with water until it is a real peanut butter consistency.
Distribute evenly into your cups. I highly recommend investing a few bucks in these silicon baking cups!!
Stick these in the freezer for about 15 minutes.  We will get our chocolate layer ready.

Mix together your chocolate protein powder, chocolate pudding mix, and milk.  You can add some sweetener too if you want.  I added one little packet.
You will need to add some extra liquid.  I added a little water, but you could also just add more milk. It should be a little thinner than pudding.

Take your cups out of the freezer and pour the chocolate batter on top.
Back into the freezer for about 30-45 minutes. Don't you hate waiting...

Ready!!! Make sure they are completely frozen before you try taking them out.  
Does that look good or what?! Sorry Reese' got nothing on these!! You can eat all 3 for only about 200 calories!! I believe you only get 2 in a package of Reese's peanut butter cups...

I would rather have 3 and no guilt after eating them :) These are also packed with protein and make a great pre or post workout snack!
They are cold and creamy and chocolatey...Perfection! If by chance you don't eat them all at once, just store the leftovers in the freezer. Let them thaw a minute or two and enjoy them later :) Beware though, they melt fast!!
