‘Tis December, which means that it’s time to make Christmas candy! Buckeyes, caramels, chocolate-covered pretzels, and peanut clusters are all Thomas family favorites, with buckeyes being the most important. In case you’re in the candy-making mood, I’ve put together a list of 21 low-carb Christmas candy recipes (all THM S or Deep S) for inspiration! Comment below and tell me what your family’s favorite Christmas candy is! Have you found a THM-friendly version?
Buckeyes are a Thomas family tradition, so having a healthy version is imperative! I use the leftover dipping chocolate to make peanut clusters, and both store well in the freezer. (Necessary Food, pg. 306)
