Makes 6



  1. First, prepare a cupcake tray with 6 cake cases. Then melt half of the white chocolate and pour a layer into each cake case. Chill in the fridge until set.
  2. Now mix together the melted peanut butter, vanilla protein, and maple syrup — you should get quite a solid, almost dough-like consistency. Divide this into the 6 cupcake moulds on top of the white chocolate layer.
  3. Add the remaining melted white chocolate on top of the peanut butter filling and chill in the fridge again until set, usually around 1 hour.
  4. Enjoy immediately or keep in the fridge for when you’re craving something sweet.
