Four Copycat Candy Recipes

When you’re a kid, copycats are the most annoying thing in the world. Having someone copy your style or repeat your words can drive you crazy! Every parent has heard a child shouting, “He’s copying me!”

When you’re an adult, one of the most annoying things is not being able to eat all the candy kids can. But, unlike them, we know the joy of copycats! Copycat recipes let us enjoy some iconic treats we usually have to avoid. Previously, we have shared low-carb copycat recipes for Starbucks drinks and candies. Today, we are back with four more delicious Halloween favorites you’ll be thrilled you copied.

Chewy Sugar-free Gummy Candy


This recipe is so easy. You do need candy molds of either gummy bears or worms. They can be bought at any craft store with a baking section. You can make them two ways: by flavoring gelatin or with a box of sugar-free Jello and adding a tablespoon of gelatin! The trick is to not dilute the liquid enough that it becomes Jello. You can even add citric acid to make sugar-free Sour Patch Kids! A serving has 29.7 calories, zero carbs and 0.01 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Copycat Mounds


Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t. But you never feel like eating carbs. This copycat recipe will perfectly hit the spot when you want to enjoy the dark chocolate, nut-free version of an Almond Joy. The instructions in the recipe suggest tweaking the filling-to-chocolate ratio to your preference. We agree. As it’s written, we think it’s a little heavy on the chocolate and light on the coconut. We suggest doubling the coconut. This recipe requires a mold. You could use an ice tray, but they might be hard to remove. You could also use small paper cups. A serving has 44 calories, 1.75 grams of carbs, 0.5 grams of fiber and four grams of fat. Get the recipe.  

Mars Protein Bar


A Milky Way bar is called a Mars bar in other countries despite being made by the same company. This recipe comes from Australia. It’s a recipe for a high-protein, low-carb Milky Way you will love. The recipe uses something called clear fiber syrup. While that isn’t common in low-carb baking here in the U.S., it is available, and you can get it on Amazon. The recipe has rave reviews, and it’s nice that it uses a microwave to cook everything, so you don’t need to turn on your stove to make the caramel! A serving has 61 calories, two grams of carbs and six grams of fat. Get the recipe.  

Low-carb Homemade Twix Bars


It’s time to make Twix bars while your fiber syrup is out! This recipe comes from the UK and yields the perfect treat for when you can’t decide if you want a cookie or a candy. We love that this recipe doesn’t call for a mold! The instructions state that if you want them to be perfect, you need a mold, but you can just use a casserole dish and slice them! A serving has 134 calories, 8.9 grams of carbs, 6.2 grams of fiber and 10.7 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

We hope that these recipes make you feel like a kid at heart. You’ll love them and share them with your friends. Unlike kids, you’ll be thrilled to have them copy you!
