Alas, poor Yorick. I knew him…
Never fear, these paleo candy skull crushers are not just tasty Halloween candies. They are also healthy! I have such a sweet tooth, so October through December is basically my favorite time of year in the kitchen. But, I also avoid unhealthy food at all costs. Paleo candies are the perfect compromise between fun and fit.
Paleo Candy Skull Crusher Ingredients
Paleo “White Chocolate”
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup Raw Cashews
1 Tbsp Raw Agave
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Tbsp Almond Milk
Paleo Berry Filling
1/4 Cup Goji Berries
1/4 Cup Black Berries
1/4 Cup Raw Cashews
2 Tbsp Almond Milk
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
Paleo Candy Skull Crusher Directions
To blend the ingredients, you’ll need some kind a blender or food processer. I used this awesome NutriBullet blender, which pulverizes literally everything. Also, it’s super convenient the way that the NutriBullet comes with multiple blending containers. I don’t need to transfer the ingredients into another container, which means less dish washing. 🙂
You’ll also need a candy mold or ice cube tray to shape the candies. I found these awesome ones on Amazon: Halloween Flexible Silicone Ice Cube Mold Trays (Set Of 3) Skulls Spiders Pumpkins. It’s a 3-pack silicone mold for making skull, pumpkin, AND spider candies (or ice cubes).
Combine the white chocolate ingredients in the blender and mix until smooth. If it’s a little thick, add a bit more almond milk. Separately mix the berry filling in a blender until smooth. Again, add almond milk if it’s too thick. Fill the bottom 1/3 of the candy mold with white chocolate filling. Freeze for 10 minutes.
Take the mold out of the freezer, and dollop 1 tsp of berry filling in the middle of the candy. Freeze for 10 more minutes.
Top the rest of the mold off with white chocolate, and freeze for at least 30 minutes.
That’s it! I had some extra filling, so I made pumpkin candies too and a few berry spiders. This recipe will fill just over 2 of the candy molds.
Serve and enjoy! Store in the freezer for safekeeping. Candies soften after about 15 minutes at room temperature.
Try not to hoard them all in your freezer for yourself 😉 These are really good. Break them out for a Halloween themed party along with some paleo witch fingers and paleo apple bites.
