Reeses Cup Frozen Yogurt Bites

17 Jul

Remember those fruity frozen yogurt bites I shared with you all the other day? Well as the chocoholic I am, I had to make a different variety.

See, chocolate and peanut butter may be my two favorite things. Well almond butter actually,  but peanut butter comes close behind.  That is why I was always a Reese’s cup lover. Unfortunately they are anything but healthy.

That is why I created these. A healthy, cold, refreshing, and delicious take on the typical Reeses cup! High in protein and low in fat, these should be a winner in anyone’s eyes.

Stored in the freezer, they are the perfect little bite of heaven at any time of the day. Even breakfast! Watch out though, mine disappeared extremely quickly :)
