These Dark Chocolate-Coated Pumpkin Spice Candy Cups show that candy doesn't have to be filled with "empty" calories! Keep these on hand for Halloween and you won't miss snacking on regular sugar-laden candy.
With Halloween just a couple days away, candy is ubiquitous and along with it temptation. There’s no reason not to have candy though…if you’re having the right kind of candy. After all, who says candy has to be unhealthy?
That’s where these candy cups come in.
The bottom layer is “pumpkin spice”, made from coconut butter (to make the candy set), pumpkin puree, a mélange of warm autumnal spices, and just a touch of honey for sweetness. The top is just good quality dark chocolate that cracks (the way good quality chocolate should do) as you bite down into the candy.
Unlike regular candy, there’s nothing artificial going on here; it’s just good (real!) food in the form of candy that will actually nourish you. Candy without a sugar crash is my kind of candy.
If you make this candy to have on hand for snacking on Halloween while you’re passing out sweet treats to trick-or-treaters, you won’t even be tempted by the goodies in their little plastic jack-o-lanterns. ;)
