Peanut Butter Cup Froyos

My son is a little bit of a peanut butter freak.

To be fair, his dad might be a bit of one too.

I would be inclined to say it’s a man thing but I’m into it to, so… there’s that.

Peanut butter chocolate is obviously a tried-and-true combo so combining them for a delicious frozen treat may not be overly unique but, no less, makes total sense.

Mix It Up

Don’t feel like you absolutely have to put that top layer of chocolate on. This is an opportunity, my friend – an opportunity for you to get creative. You might try some fresh chopped nuts, fruit (although, if using banana, I’m going to suggest putting banana between the chocolate and the yogurt so it doesn’t get some funky color to it), shredded coconut or whatever you’re into. Hey, worst case scenario – you scrape it off the top, it looks a little ugly and you shove it in your mouth and enjoy it anyway.

Bon Ding Dang Appétit!

Ingredients

  • cup organic semi-sweet chocolate chips divided
  • cups organic greek yogurt I used Fage’s Lactose-Free Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup I personally love stockins raw honey; add half the honey and adjust up to desired sweetness
  • 1 scoop Orgain Protein Powder, Peanut Butter Cup flavor optional
  • 2 tbsp organic PB Fit peanut butter powder see notes

Instructions

  • Line baking sheet with foil. Set aside. *See notes
  • Melt half of your chocolate chips and spread across the foil lined baking sheet. If your oven will allow you to do so, you can place them on your pan or in molds and put them in at 125° just until melted. A simple light tap of your pan/mold will even out the chocolate.
  • If not using a mold, you may want to be mindful that there is some sort of rim or edge to contain your melted chocolate so it doesn’t just spread all over the place and possibly thinner than you would like.
  • Place chocolate into the freezer to harden.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together Greek yogurt, honey, peanut butter powder and protein powder, if you're using it.
  • Spread the yogurt mixture on top of the chocolate and drizzle or pour the rest of your melted chocolate on top.
  • Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight. Break into pieces, cut into squares or remove from molds, and serve immediately.

Notes

* My son requested that I use more peanut butter next time to make them more peanut-buttery.  His dad didn’t think it needed it.  Adjust based on how peanut-buttery you and your family like these sorts of things.
**I made these originally in silicone molds just to make them a little more festive and to divvy up the servings. I scooped a tablespoon and a teaspoon into each of the mold cups and melted them straight into them in my oven at 125 degrees while I knocked out my dishes.
You are certainly welcome to spread them on a baking sheet and break them into bark or cut them, though you’ll have to let them soften just a bit after being frozen to get a clean cut. Still, this would be my preference to keep the portions controlled and evensies.
