Imagine an ocean of peanut butter.
Filled with peanut butter and maple pecan fish.
Imagine that ocean’s waves crashing onto a beach made out of chocolate.
With tiny specs of sea salt sand.
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.
“I want to eat it all!!
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.
I need to do something… anything!”
And like so… BAM! You wave your wand and turn the whole scene before you into the world’s most delicious protein truffle.
I know, I know. It’s a kind of… whimsical introduction. But I could honestly find no other way of introducing Charlie’s Double Peanut Butter Salted Chocolate Brownie Protein Truffles! They’re just out of this world! If your tastebuds are anything like mine, I swear, these truffles will floor you too. Just make them and you’ll see. You’ll be transported to a totally different reality! One where the above story actually makes a lot of sense.
