One of the best ways to avoid unhealthy, processed candy laden with sugar and artificial ingredients at Halloween is to make your own! We like to use 85% dark chocolate and sweeten it with a little bit of stevia extract. The best part about homemade candy and chocolate is that you know exactly what is it in, and you can adjust the sweetness to your own taste preference. These are so easy to make, absolutely delicious, and sure to be gobbled up by kids and adults!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cups
Makes 6 servings
- 6 tbs dark chocolate chips
- 3/4 tbs coconut oil
- 3/4 Quest Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough protein bar, cut into 6 pieces
- candy mold (we bought one at Michael’s!)
In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave for 30 seconds, remove and stir, then place back into the microwave for 10-15 second increments stirring in between until chocolate is melted. Spoon melted chocolate into each candy cup mold until almost halfway full. Roll Quest bar pieces into round balls and drop into each chocolate cup, lightly pressing it down into the chocolate. Top with remaining chocolate and place in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours or until hardened. Enjoy!
