Sugar Free Candy Recipes

- Mix all ingredients together.

- Checking the texture: If your helper does not measure properly add more of the type of ingredient needed...
- Too wet or sticky? add more coconut or nuts.
- Too dry to hold together? add more condensed milk.
- Roll into balls. Chill well (overnight) and then ENJOY!
Hints, Tips and Variations:
- This candy can be made in a sugar/ full fat version by simply using jello, sweetened coconut, and sweetened condensed milk.
- The pecans can be omitted and or traded for your favorite nut or seed. We use an old coffee grinder to "chop" our nuts or seeds super fine.
- Try this recipe with your favorite flavor (orange, raspberry, cherry, lime, lemon, grape) of jello.
Light (sugar free non fat) condensed milk is super easy and inexpensive to make. I keep basic ingredients on hand but don't always have canned milk or want to run to the store.
- Dissolve 1 cup Equal (Nutrasweet, or other sweetener) in 3/4 cup warm water then add 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons Nonfat dry skim milk and blend. This recipe makes 14 ounces or the equivalent of one can.
