Low Carb Chocolate Pecan Candy

Print Friendly

These are a great alternative to the sugar-free candies sold in the grocery store– plus they don’t have maltitol. They are very rich and really satisfy a craving for chocolate. Actually, they remind me of no bake chocolate and oatmeal cookies that some people call “oaties.” They are quick and easy to make. I hope you give them a try!

 

 

Low Carb Chocolate Pecan Candy

1 stick of butter

24 drops EZ Sweetz

1 cup granular erythritol

1/4 cup cream

pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup pecans

1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut

1 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate

In a small saucepan, melt butter and stir in EZ Sweetz, erythritol, cream, and salt. Bring mixture to a simmer and stir until sweetener is completely dissolved. It only takes about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Add the chocolate and stir until melted. Stir in pecans and coconut and combine well.

 I allowed my mixture to cool slightly and put small spoonfuls in a mini-muffin tin. I let them sit in the freezer for 20-25 minutes. I removed them from the pan and stored them in the refrigerator.

However, I must admit the muffin tin was probably more trouble than it was worth. They were hard to get out of the pan. The next time I make these, I’ll put spoonfuls of the mixture onto wax paper like a drop cookie, and then let them set in the refrigerator until firm.

  1. These look wonderful! I had to have some chocolate today and yes, it had the malitol, and yes, my tummy did not like that at all! What is the sugar equivalent of the EZ Sweetz, as the 2 sized bottles do not measure out the same (wish that would change).
    As for the muffin tin, I am going to use my mini silicon “tin”. Love that I can tip it upsidedown and push things out of it.
    Can’t wait to try these, thank you!!!!

    • Awesome idea about the silicon pan! I need to get one of those for myself. My EZ Sweetz is the smaller bottle where 24 drops is equivalent to one cup.
      Thanks!
