Peanut Butter Protein Fudge Cups

These peanut butter fudge cups are protein packed and a great alternative for the “Reese’s lover” in the family (who isn’t though?). The chocolate fudge layers are dense and rich while the peanut butter layer is on the lighter side. The combo together makes for a delicious protein snack that rivals the best around! Enjoy 🙂
