Protein Ice Cream Bon Bons

When you can't beat back your inner Martha Stewart. Shit like this happens...

You need:
1 batch of Protein Ice Cream (I used Mint Chocolate Chip)
Mini Ice Cream Scoop
Sugar Free Chocolate Bar
Wooden Skewer or Toothpick

Make a batch of protein ice cream following your ice cream maker manufacturer's instructions. When it reaches soft serve transfer it into a tupperware. The ice cream needs to be at the scoopable stage so freeze it for 1-2 hours to firm up. When the protein ice cream is firm enough to scoop use a mini ice cream scoop to scoop mini balls of ice cream. Place them spread apart in a flat tupperware or plate and refreeze for several hours or overnight. Melt Sugar Free Chocolate in microwave. I nuke it in 25 second increments stirring in between. Dip the frozen ice cream balls into the melted chocolate to coat completely. A wooden skewer or toothpick works great for manipulating the frozen balls in the chocolate. Work quickly. Once all balls have been coated thoroughly in the melted chocolate put them back into the freezer for about 30 minutes to set the chocolate.

I know... lunacy but I had to share it. Well I'm off to fold napkins into swans now.

Just kidding.

ETA: Martha need not worry. I can't do swans only chickens...

How do you keep the chocolate from sliding off? Dipping the bottom was not a problem but I was not able to get any of them to look like the picture :-(

Sounds like your ice cream balls are not hard enough.
