Charlie’s Double Peanut Butter Salted Chocolate Protein Brownie TRUFFLES (TM)

Double Peanut Butter Salted Chocolate Protein Brownie TRUFFLES

Imagine an ocean of peanut butter.

1

Filled with peanut butter and maple pecan fish.

2

Imagine that ocean’s waves crashing onto a beach made out of chocolate.

3

With tiny specs of sea salt sand.

4Imagine then a bunch of moist and delicious brownies, laid out on the beach…

5… being covered and uncovered by the ocean’s peanut butter waves as they crash and recede against them.

6

Now, imagine then yourself as a wizard who, one day, stumbles upon this land.

“Whoa… By the power of Pow!” You think to yourself when you see the beach before you.

WHOA

“I want to eat it all! But unfortunately, I can’t, for my stomach is human-sized and I’d probably end up too full. My mouth also isn’t large enough to be able to eat a whole brownie drenched in sea water with a bit of the fish and a bit of the sand on it. Something, anything, I must do…”

And like so… BAM! You wave your wand and turn the whole scene before you into the world’s most delicious protein truffle (TM).
