3 Ingredient Maple Pecan Candies from Homemade Mommy

Do you have Butter? Maple syrup? Nuts? Then you can make this 3 ingredient homemade candy that is refined sugar-free! This takes about 30 minutes to make active time and the result is worth it.

Ingredients

Tools needed: candy thermometer

Directions

Heat the maple syrup until a candy thermometer registers 249 degrees (hard ball stage). Use a pot with tall sides to avoid this boiling over. You can kind of stir down the foam as it heats to prevent a boil over as well. Be careful – hot maple syrup can burn you!

Once it hits the hard ball stage (249 degrees F), stir in the butter. Remove from heat and stir in the nuts.

Spoon out into oiled mini-muffin cups or a small silicon ice tray. Once the candies are cooled, wrap each one in wax paper or edible rice paper.

I am a very busy real food mama! When I am not taking care of my 5 year old, I take time to share my real food recipes on my blog, Homemade Mommy. I finds the time for homemade cooking because eating this way has truly changed my family’s life. Ditching processed food has helped us all to heal from a number of ailments including asthma, allergies, recurrent sinus infections and ADHD. I buy organic, from family farms, local and grass-fed. I am passionate about achieving vibrant health and am happy to share tips, techniques and recipes in my eBook, The Real Food Survival Guide for Busy Moms which is an excellent resource for any busy mom (or dad) who wants to cook real food for their family but is not sure how to take the plunge.

    I just made these, and they turned out wonderfully! The only thing I did differently was to add a little sprinkle of salt, because my butter was unsalted. Loved it! Thanks for all of your great recipes!
