PLEASE tell me you are a chocolate and peanut butter fan!!! If not, I don't think we can be friends... Honestly!  These 2 things exist in every single day of my life!  They make life more enjoyable :)
AND if you like reese's peanut butter cups.... Get your hands on some of these puppies!

1/2 Cup Melted Coconut Oil
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Honey
5 Scoops Chocolate protein (Whey or Casein- preferably Casein if this is a after dinner dessert!)
** Chocolate topping is optional

1.  Mix all ingredients together until you are able to form the dough into balls. Size should be about an   inch and a half.  (if they start to fall apart or aren't holding together well, then add more protein powder. If they are too dry, add a little bit more PB)
2.  Place on wax paper and put them into the freezer for about 30 minutes.
3.  If you chose to add some chocolate to the top, melt some dark chocolate cacao chips with a little bit of coconut oil and then dunk the tops!

I was able to make about 25- 30 Amazeballs... You'll want that much to last you all week! They truly are Uh-MAZING if you are a PB and chocolate fan!  Hope you enjoy :)
