Chocolate Diabetes Candy Recipes


Diabetic Chocolate Nut Clusters


  • 6 oz. sugar-free chocolate
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (of your choice)



Line a baking sheet with foil to begin and spray lightly with cooking spray. Then, in a microwave-safe bowl, chop the chocolate up into small pieces. Microwave the chocolate for 45 seconds. If it needs more time, microwave again, but be careful not to scald it. When the chocolate is mostly melted you can take it out and stir it until it is completely melted and smooth.

Next, pour the nuts into the melted chocolate, and stir until it is all well-mixed and the nuts are coated. Use a teaspoon to drop the chocolate onto the baking sheet into 1 inch clusters. Afterwards, place the candy in the refrigerator for approximately 20 minutes, or until the candy is set.
