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.
