*Peanut Butter Candy* (Diabetic Recipe)

Today I decided on these little candy's. You can put them in a nice box and give them as a gift to someone you know that has diabetes. or you can eat them yourself. I would think that you could use a different type of buttered nut; like almond butter nut and there are other kinds. I know they have a variety in health food stores, because I've seen them. Try a few different things, as long as you use foods that are healthy for you. Well here you go.

*Peanut Butter Candy* (Diabetic Recipe)

You can leave some of the candy's without chocolate. Makes a little less carbohydrates, Or try dipping them in more coconut, or maybe dipped in sesame seeds. Remember the carbs change when you change the ingredients. Enjoy!

½ Cup Powdered Milk, Dry
½ Cup Honey, Or Molasses
1 Cup Coconut, Shredded
