These Cookie Dough Candies are going to save me from off plan treats this Easter!!

Easter has always been a hard holiday for me to stay away from candy, these Cookie Dough Candies are really going to help keep me on plan. They are super rich and satisfying so it only takes one or two to curb that candy craving.

I used stevia sweetened chocolate chips in the filling as well as making the outer shell. You can use Lily’s Sweets sugar-free chips or these Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips.Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips (THM S, Low Carb, Diabetic friendly) Sugar free chocolate baking chips

I love these chips for so very many reasons.
They make it easier for my baking to come out with a more traditional taste and look. They are inexpensive and easy to keep on hand in the freezer for whenever I want some baking chips.

It will not take you long to make these candies. The longest time that is needed is the chilling time when you add it all up, it totals about 15 to 30 minutes. I used to make candy with my children when they were younger and the process really gets much easier the more often that you make recipes like this one. The memories that you make are for a lifetime. 
 

I’m a huge believer in family traditions and these cookie dough candies are going to become the new tradition for my husband and myself. Healthy choices aren’t nearly as hard when there are bloggers and Mama’s that share their creativity within the Trim Healthy Mama Community.

May your Holidays and Journeys be blessed.

      1. That would mean there are 120 carbs in the whole recipe? That seems really high. There are only 12 grams of net carbs in the coconut flour and 10 in the peanut flour. That makes 22 net carbs for the whole recipe; not 120. I just can’t see how they are that carb loaded. I’m sure they are delicious, though!

        1. It may be a glitch in the nutrition calculations also sometimes the calculations get a bit wonky with the alternative flours and sweeteners 🙂

  1. OK, I gave up and just made them. I said to myself…”It’s Easter, so Ill just have a couple, if they turn out reasonable.” OMG! I made them with your Stevia choc. chip recipe and they totally ROCK! I used my silicone peanut butter cup mold and followed the recipe exactly. Thank you so much for all your work and the time it takes to perfect a recipe. I will be making these again… I also plan to make a batch of your peanut butter chips to fold into brownies and/or ice cream. Those silicone pot holders work great for getting small chips. What an ingenious idea!

    1. I’m so very happy you gave them a try 🙂 and yes it’s a special treat for once in a while… I LOVE the baking chips — they make baking within this lifestyle so much easier.
