Recipe courtesy Quest Nutrition
Yields: 2 servings
Serving size: 1 cookie
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 6 minutes
1 Double Chocolate Chunk Quest Bar
1 scoop Quest Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder
2 ½ tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon granulated zero-calorie sweetener
2 lollipop sticks
1 oz sugar-free white chocolate
1 drop green food coloring
4 sugar-free chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, heat unwrapped Double Chocolate Chunk Quest Bar for 9 seconds. Break into 4 even pieces.
Coat two large squares of wax paper with cooking spray. Place the bar pieces on the paper and cover with the second sheet. Roll each piece to approximately ¼” thickness. Shape into 4 even circles using a cookie cutter.
Place cookie circles onto a nonstick baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat. Bake for 6 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned. Remove to cool.
In a small bowl, mix the Quest Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder, almond milk and zero-calorie sweetener until a smooth, thick icing is achieved. Mixture will be very thick.
Divide icing evenly onto all four cookies and spread. Lay a lollipop stick in the center of one cookie and sandwich the other cookie on top. Press down gently to secure the stick and both cookies together.
Microwave the sugar-free white chocolate for .45 seconds. Stir. Microwave 10 additional seconds, if needed.
Remove 1 teaspoon of the white chocolate and add 1 drop of green food coloring. Stir well. Spoon the melted white chocolate onto the top and sides of each cookie (do not frost the back). Place two sugar-free chocolate chips as eyes onto the front. Let harden slightly. Spoon ½ teaspoon of the melted green chocolate onto the top of each snowman to create a hat.
Continue to embellish the snowman, if desired.
