Protein Chocolate Treats: 3 Valentine's Day Recipes
If you're looking for the perfect Valentine's Day gift to surprise your fit sweetie, here it is. Make your own protein chocolates and display them in a box of your own design! Awww.
Is your significant other is a muscle-building, macro-counting, protein-loving beast (or beastess)? If the answer is yes, then a box of protein chocolates might just be the ticket to his or her heart!
Protein chocolates are fantastic because they're high in antioxidants, rich in fiber, and completely sugar-free. Also, did I mention they're delicious? Giving your loved one homemade protein chocolates in a homemade box is a great way to show him or her how much you care! I guarantee you'll be well rewarded for your hard work (wink)!
Be warned: Once your better half knows you know how to make them, you'll turn into a personal protein-chocolate-making factory! Don't have a fitness-bunny honey? Who cares! Make these and eat them yourself. They're so good you'll be glad you don't have to share. Here's how they're done:
Strawberry Protein-Filled Dark Chocolate Bites
Chocolate Protein-Filled Dark Chocolate Cups
Be creative! Add some brandy if you want to make boozy chocolates, or some chili powder for that extra spicy oomph. Throw in some peanut butter, add cocoa nibs, or try using sunflower seeds. You can also try adding orange peel, dried coconut, or make vanilla filling by using vanilla casein and adding cinnamon. Unflavored casein blended with dates is another great-tasting option. These will be your signature chocolates, so go crazy!
