Are you diabetic or have a child with type 1 diabetes? If so, you will enjoy these sugar-free Halloween candy recipes. We will be using our zero calorie, zero glycemic Powdered BochaSweet Sugar Replacement so these Halloween treats can give your body healthy sweetness for a healthy you.

We’ve learned that high glycemic sweeteners that are found in most treats are not healthy and are the main cause of health problems for many people of all ages. The popular sugary treats that are given away as trick-or-treat items for Halloween can be harmful, even deadly, to children with type 1 diabetes. 

So as a parent of a type 1 child what do you do? Do you deprive your child of the joy of trick-or-treating? Well, it’s not okay to give a harmful substance in the form of candy to a type 1 child or for that matter to anyone with diabetes. Nobody should really be eating sugar because of all the downsides to your health and your teeth.

Start making this Halloween a healthier low carb and sugar-free holiday with these five candy recipes. Whether you crave chocolate coconut almond clusters, peanut butter cups, chocolate-covered nuts, and raisins, or gummy bears, these sugar-free candy recipes are perfect for satisfying your Halloween candy cravings.
