Ingredients

Peanut Butter Filling
1 cup peanut butter -- sugar free
3/4 cup splenda
1/4 c whey protein Isolate -- vanilla
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp butter
Chocolate Coating
4 squares unsweetened chocolate (Bakers)
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp shortening
2 tbsp heavy cream
1 pinch salt
1 cup splenda

Directions

Peanut Butter Filling - Melt butter over low heat. Stir in all other filling ingredients. Knead until it can be handled like playdough. (You can add extra cream if it is too dry.) Mold into egg shapes. Freeze solid on wax paper before coating.



Chocolate coating - Melt all ingredients over low heat, stirring constantly. Cool almost to room temperature before dipping. Dip each egg and return them to the wax paper. Refrigerate.

Additional Information

You can try substituting powdered milk for the whey protein, but remember to add it to the carb count.

I've also added about a half a square of parafin wax to the coating mix when I was taking these somewhere that they could not be kept cold. Otherwise they melt pretty fast at room temperature so keep them in the fridge!
