I seriously used to be addicted to these raw coconut chocolates when I was kicking my candida and sugar cravings. I substituted the honey for xylitol when I was overcoming my candida overgrowth. Although, the flavor from honey is much better.
I’m pretty sure they were a staple in my fridge for an entire year. While I don’t get intense sugar cravings like I used to, I am so glad that I had these healthy chocolates to satisfy those cravings at the time.
