Tasty almond covered low carb candy bites. This simple chocolate covered coconut candy recipe is an easy to make treat for those on a sugar free diet.
When I was a teenager, I worked in a store that made candy. This recipe is very similar to one of the handmade chocolate candies I used to make there.
Rather than use the typical sweetened coconut in the candy, I used unsweetened. Although you don’t have to sweeten the coconut first, I chose to do it.
I simply stirred in some hot sugar free vanilla syrup into the coconut and let it sit. The result is a low carb sweetened coconut that is perfect for using in recipes.
This sugar free chocolate covered coconut candy recipe makes the perfect gift. Just put each bite into small paper candy cups and box them up.
When you are craving a sugar free Almond Joy candy bar, this sweet low carb coconut candy is sure to hit the spot. What’s your favorite way to enjoy the flavors of chocolate and coconut?
