This recipe comes from “Tastemade”. When I saw this recipe I was hype! I mean who doesn’t love candy? Furthermore if you tell me there is actually a healthy way to make it, I’m sold!

In addition to the obvious fruit base the secret ingredient is white yam. Despite it’s name it’s actually a sweet potato! It’s made of good carbs, fiber and an excellent source of potassium. Enjoy!
