If you want to provide a cute snack for a Halloween party – try these monster bites! They're actually pretty easy to make – and it's super simple to double (or triple!) the recipe as well!
So a quick note on the edible eyes! Although you could make your own (use confectioner's Swerve and Lily's chocolate chips in a recipe like this), I personally don't have the patience! But of course regular candy eyes aren't exactly low carb and definitely not sugar free! So rather than add them to ALL the “monsters”, just add them to one – rather like I did with my Low Carb Halloween Jalapeño Poppers. It gives guests the visual joke, without all the unnecessary sugar.
How to Make Low Carb Monster Bites
The base of the monster bites is a simple blend of cream cheese, coconut oil, and confectioner's Swerve. Beat them together in a stand mixer, then transfer it to a bowl and place in the fridge for an hour or until hardened.
Meanwhile, divide some unsweetened flaked coconut between two bowls. Add a few drops of green food dye to one, and orange to the other. Mix each bowl well.
Form the cream cheese mixture into 16 balls. Roll 8 of the balls in the green coconut, and 8 balls in the orange coconut. Try to keep the two colors separate!
Keep in the fridge until required, adding two edible candy eyes to one of the monster bites before serving.
