12 Homemade Candy Recipes with Real Food Ingredients

12 Homemade Candy Recipes with real food ingredients - DontMesswithMama.comWhile candy is certainly sweet and delicious, it’s hard to give in to kids (or adults) who want a sweet treat since most store-bought candy is usually nothing more than sugar (or worse high fructose corn syrup), artificial colors and preservatives.

So I’ve rounded up the sweetest (pun intended) homemade candy recipes that feature real food ingredients. Many of these recipes are gluten-free, Paleo and low in sugar – great for those with food allergies or dietary restrictions. So whether you like sour candies, homemade marshmallows or dark chocolate, we’ve got you covered with these healthier candy recipes.

Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials

I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.

Sign up for a Thrive Market membership and get 2 months free and 10% off your first order.
