• 2 scoops Lean Body for Her peanut protein
• ¼ cup coconut sugar
• ¼ cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder

• ¼ cup all-natural peanut butter

Optional Topping: Melted dark chocolate
1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together all of the ingredients until everything is smooth and well combined. *The mixture will be very thick, so I used my hands to mix it at the end.
2. Place 18 mini silicone cupcake liners on a large, flat dish. Fill each liner with fudge batter until each liner is about 2/3 full.
3. If desired, melt about ¼ – ½ cup of dark chocolate chips and drizzle each fudge cup with melted dark chocolate.
4. Place the fudge in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
5. Remove fudge from fridge and serve immediately.
You can store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days. Or you can keep them in the freezer for up to 1 month.
