3/4 c. peanut butter (Skippy Natural, smooth is my favorite)
1/3 c. vanilla protein powder of choice
1/2 t. vanilla extract
2 T. maple syrup
1/2 c. chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients, except chocolate chips in a bowl.
Spoon mixture evenly into a mini muffin pan. Use a spoon and make a small divot in the center of each cup.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave (~90 seconds), top PB cups with a spoonful of melted chocolate.
Freeze overnight or for a minimum of 2 hours, use a knife or icing spatula to remove from mini muffin pan; place in freezer bag and store in freezer.
