Healthy Chocolate Candy
Happy Halloween from the Sugar-Free Fairy! You might wonder how you can stay healthy on Halloween, despite all the sweet, sticky temptations teasing you at every turn…
I know that quitting sugar isn’t easy, which is why I believe that it is perfectly acceptable to indulge in a sweet treat every once in awhile, especially on special occasions like Halloween.
Grocery stores are probably lacking healthy Halloween candy alternatives that subscribe to your special diet. Being someone who [these days] is paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and fructose-free, I find myself spending hours in the health sections of grocery stores scouring the ingredients lists just to realize after two hours of squinting at tiny print that I might as well just make the dang thing myself.
Does that sound like you, too?
Luckily, I found Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips and my life changed forever. Now I can satisfy my chocolate cravings with healthy candy that I can make quickly at home. Better yet, I don’t need to feel left out on Halloween, and now neither do you.
These are kid-friendly healthy chocolates, suitable for any party or after-dinner dessert. Just be careful – they can be quite addicting (and yes, I do believe there can be too much of a good thing – though my mother would argue that there can never be too much chocolate)!

Question of the Day:What was your favorite candy as a kid, and have you found a healthy replacement? Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were absolutely my favorite candy as a kid. These healthy chocolate candies I think taste more decadent and gourmet.
What about you?
