Trick or Treat… Or Both!
Halloween is just around the corner! As avid fans of the holiday (we haven’t missed a year of dressing up, maybe ever?), we were ashamed to find that we haven’t created a keto-friendly Halloween recipe for Tasteaholics yet.
We’ve got some super popular Caramel Nut Clusters – but that’s about as close as we got to a Halloween treat.
It took us quite some time to decide on something sufficiently spooky as well as a treat for the entire family. We landed on this Halloween Mud Pie recipe variation and also threw in a quick homemade gummy worms recipe to boot! If you can find sugar-free gummy worms where you live, feel free to use them. We adapted our Zero Carb Gummy Candy recipe from our Dessert in Five cookbook and used a gummy worm mold we purchased on Amazon. It worked so well!
This recipe was more fun to make than any other low carb dessert recipe we’ve ever tried! It did require a bit of elbow grease and getting your hands dirty… but it’s a mud pie, after all.
The base was made by savagely crumbling our trusty low carb cake recipe after baking it to perfection. Destroying a sweet creation of ours was painful at first, but we realized we had to do it for the end product to be exactly what we had in mind. After crumbling the cake, we molded it back together in a springform pan with our homemade gummy worms and “glued” it all with a sort-of chocolate ganache. It was heavenly – take a look:
Loving the look of this Halloween Mud Pie? Whip it up for work to scare your coworkers, at home to trick the kids, or take it with you to a Halloween party – it’ll be a hit! So enough drooling, let’s get to the spooky recipe:
