Yes, its nutrition stats DO look good.  Hummm .. idk

I was skeptical as I reached for my protein powder.  We'll start by making half of a batch

To date, homemade protein snacks have made me feel like I was settling if even just a little bit.

It's not like any of them were bad, but something about the taste and texture that weren't quite on for me the way my favorite chocolaty treat was.  The mental conversation I had with myself while it rolled around on my tongue, “It isn't too bad.  I could live with this.”

Thin Mint Fudge Covered Cookies (Protein Powder optional) - Finally .. a homemade snack made with protein powder that doesn't make one feel like they have to settle. They really are that good!

So I faithfully made a batch.  As they came out of the freezer, they were love at first bite

Everyone who's tried them since has asked for the recipe and had the same response. “They taste good!”

Yep, no more settling.

Enjoy!

ps:  I've made these several times since.  The key is to put a small amount of cookie dough into the bottom of the muffin tin.  Barely enough to cover the bottom.  That way, when you dip them in the peanut butter chocolate protein fudge, you'll have a thin mint cookie

    God these look so good. I’m a bore chocoholic and am munching on a bar of Cadbury’s choc as we speak. I also love mint and the fact there is added protein in there to is a win win for me.
