• 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.
