June is Candy Month and what better way to celebrate than learning or expanding upon ones craft of candy making? Candy making is easy and really fun to do but where to start? Recipes galore exist on candy recipes and it’s always hard to narrow it down. Not to mention allergies, other health issues, and personal preferences always impact decision making. However, I’ll let you in on a secret – the best part is you can make recipes to suit your own needs. Find copycat recipes for your favorite recipes, that’s the best place to start. That’s how I found all of these handy and easy recipes. Having keto options for fan favorites like chocolate orange truffles or the ability to have peanut free nougat bars is amazing.
Try out these easy recipes to start your summer off right!
These orange chocolate truffles are delicious keto alternatives to chocolate at the store. This recipe uses stevia, orange extract, heavy whipping cream, dark chocolate, and other tasty ingredients to make delicious truffles.
The best part of this recipe is it’s easy to modify it to be allergy friendly (they’re so good). You can take out the peanuts, like I have to, and still get to enjoy this amazing candy. Big hunks are made of nougat and peanuts. They’re a delicious old fashioned candy. In order to create this dish, you need sugar, marshmallow fluff, corn syrup, and peanuts.
Caramel is so easy to make. Butter, erythritol, and sour cream make this delicious recipe. Dress it up with chocolate to make chocolate caramels, or sprinkle it with salt.
Food coloring, citric acid, apple candy flavoring, light corn syrup, butter, and sugar make up these delicious fruit chews.
Ever want to make your own pop rocks? Now you can! Sugar, honey, baking soda, citric acid mix together with a few other ingredients to make this candy.
Fudge is an easy and delicious treat. Use this recipe to a keto version! All you need is sugar free sweetened condensed milk and sugar free chocolate chips.
This delicious recipe includes condensed milk, cherries (maraschino or cherry frosting), chocolate, powdered sugar, and nuts. This recipe can also be modified to have different flavored centers and/or no nuts depending on preference!
There are so many recipes to choose from and wanting something sweet from time to time happens. These recipes can be made during family bonding nights (supervision required, it is not safe to let children mix boiling candy but they can help gather ingredients or make easier recipes) or as gifts. You get to learn a new craft while you also get a tasty treat out of it, enough candy to share with family for half the price of buying individual bars!
