Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Peanut Clusters

 

Homemade sugar free Dark Chocolate Candy can be easy to make at home. I started making my own sugar free candy a few month ago when I realized how much sugar was in even the dark chocolate candy bars. I love chocolate and wanted a way to enjoy it without all the sugar.

Why should you make homemade candy?

1) Cheaper

Good quality sugar free candy is expensive!

2) Quick and easy dessert

Dessert can be ready in less than 20 minutes!

3) Healthy

Using coconut oil and stevia, these candies are actually quite healthy for you… so no guilt if you happen to eat the whole batch in one sitting (not me of course, cough)

Making Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Peanut Clusters

I used Stevia Extract powder to sweeten my candy bars. I love the way the stevia sweetens without affecting my blood sugar. A little goes a long way too!

A few weeks ago I was shopping in Hobby Lobby with my family and noticed their silicon baking cups were on sale. I thought they would be the perfect thing for making homemade chocolate. I also bought a set of number and letter molds for making some fun jello molds for Aidalyn.

If you don’t have silicone molds, you can use a shallow glass pan. That is what I normally was using until I bought these molds. I would cut the chocolate into squares using a knife. It wasn’t as easy, but it tasted great.

Making homemade chocolate could not be easier. You can double this recipe pretty easily too. This recipe will last about one day in my house, haha. Between the 3 of us eating. It makes about 2 full sized candy bars.

Coconut oil is so healthy for you, so I don’t mind Aidalyn enjoying these right along with us.

    • We are pretty much sugar free here at our house. I’ll use natural sweeteners for my daughter if I’m making something just for her. I love that stevia is a good healthy alternative for sugar free goodies.

  1. I swear, coconut oil is magical. I don’t know how I did anything before I started using it! Great recipe. I can’t wait to try it.

  3. I love Stevia. I’m allergic to coconut but this is something I would really like my kids to try out. I look forward to seeing how they like it. Thank you for linking up at MaMade Blog Hop!

  4. Definitely my kind of treat! I’ll eat anything with peanut butter or cocoa in it. 😉 Thanks for sharing this at Savoring Saturdays, Angela!

  5. I’ve stayed away from storebought, even healthy storebought candy because it usually doesn’t make me feel too good. I should try making my own. I have a feeling I’ll find a lot of sales in the next few weeks as the craft stores move along the Easter and spring items.

  6. This looks similar to something I make only I don’t put nuts in mine. 🙂 It is so good. I use stevia and xylitol to sweeten it and love eating candy that is guilt-free.
