Coconut sugar is a plant-based, unrefined sweetener rich in nutrients like iron and potassium, as well as a source of soluble fiber. While it is still sugar, it is a slightly healthier choice, and has a super delicious flavor, to boot!
- You can swap the coconut sugar for any granulated sweetener you have on hand or prefer to use.
- You can make this candy all the sweeter by using semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips or dark or unsweetened chocolate chips for a slightly healthier take.
- If you are on a vegan or dairy-free diet, swap the regular butter for the plant-based variety.
- The shredded coconut just adds a touch of texture and flavor, but can be omitted if you prefer.
