Coconut Delights

Coconut Delights

I created these coconut delights specifically for my sweet Richie!  His favorite candy is, well, you can probably guess the name.

The problem with commercially produced candy bars, is that they are LOADED with sugar!  Being a diabetic, he really missed having his favorite treat, so I just had to add them to my list of unconventional recipes so that he could indulge more frequently and not have any guilt (or spikes).

This delish recipe is found on page 98 of my recently published cookbook, Healthy Holidays with the Unconventional Foodie.  It is one of 52 amazing, full-color recipes that you are sure to LOVE!  You can pick up the book HERE.
