Need some healthy options for your sweet tooth? Instead of chowing down on store-bought candies during the holidays, give any one of these Healthy Homemade Candies a try.
Healthy Homemade Candies.
I’ve never been a huge candy fan. Y’all can keep your M&Ms, Skittles, and Starbursts. Give me the chocolates! And I’m being totally honest when I say that, as much as I enjoyed chocolate candy bars and peanut butter cups pre-celiac, I love homemade versions even more! Plus, they’re guilt-free…
That’s right, these homemade candies are not only free of refined sugars and artificial sweeteners and flavors, they’re actually full of nutrition! So there’s no need to compromise your health to satisfy your sweet tooth. 😉
