This basic recipe has become a go-to “candy” recipe in the house inspired by a recipe developed by Tropical Traditions. It combines coconut, peanuts, and chocolate to make an exceptional treat for all ages. Our children call it “candy” and prefer it over any other “candy” they might find out in the big, bad candy world. In fact, when I was shooting the picture, the hand reaching for the candy was entirely unplanned. That is my three-year-old taking his opportunity.
This recipe is extremely versatile. Explore different nuts, seeds, and sweeteners. The proportions are totally forgiving as well. Experiment. The sugar in the recipe is optional; chocolate chips provide a nice level of sweetness on their own.
We used coconut cream concentrate and coconut oil that we purchased from Tropical Traditions, our affiliate partner.
Serve the candy immediately from the freezer — the coconut oil will melt in your hands if kept too long.
If you are new to coconut product shopping, check out the catalog at Tropical Traditions. On your first order, you will receive a book about coconut oil and I will receive a discount coupon as well.
