one cup dark chocolate chips
In a medium mixing bowl, combine peanut butter and Jamie Eason Lean Body for Her Whey Protein Isolate. Mix until dough forms. The peanut butter filling should be playdough-like in consistency but not sticky. If your dough is bit sticky, add a touch more protein powder.
Using approximately 2 tablespoons form the mixture into egg shapes. Place the Easter eggs in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or firm.
Place the dark chocolate chips in a small glass bowl. Microwave for one minute. Stir, then continue to microwave in 30 second intervals until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Working with one egg at a time, place top side down in bowl of chocolate. Use a fork to flip the egg over and cover the bottom with chocolate. Place Easter eggs on a wire rack, parchment or waxed paper to harden. Repeat with remaining Easter eggs.
Note: Although the calories and other nutrients are a little high for most snacks, remember that the ingredients are much better than those found in other similar candy. You may also tweak the ingredients as you desire.
