We have good news for those with a sweet tooth.
This scrumptious treat is chewy, decadent, and marries the irresistible combination of chocolate and peppermint. Top it off with a touch of sea salt, sweeten with dates and honey instead of refined sugar, and enjoy 3 grams of protein per bon-bon.
Chocolate coating ingredients
Add the dates, walnuts, protein powder, and cocoa powder to a food processor and blend until everything is finely chopped. Add the liquid ingredients and blend again until everything is smooth. Spoon into 1-inch sized bonbons onto a cookie sheet with wax paper.
For the chocolate coating, add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until everything has melted into a smooth liquid. Use a spoon to coat each bon-bon with the chocolate coating, and sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
Let the bonbons set in the refrigerator for one hour before serving. Makes 12 bonbons.
