Kacey’s Dark Chocolate & Peanut-Butter Protein Cups!

Here’s the recipe for my Dark Chocolate & Peanut-Butter Protein Cups.  I got a bee in my bonnet last week about trying to recreate a Reese’s peanut butter cup (which I loved having as a kid) so I started mixing up healthy & yummy ingredients in my kitchen to see if I could come up … Continued
