With just three simple ingredients, you can create diet-friendly chocolate pecan caramels that fit into your weight loss program. This guilt-free recipe is easy to make and under 100 calories.

Our popular NutriChocolates are packed with seven grams of protein for a healthier alternative to your favorite cocoa-flavored candies. We melted down these little chocolate morsels and featured them in this healthy candy creation. These gourmet chocolates may look like they were made by a chocolatier. However, you can easily prepare them in the comfort of your own kitchen with just a few steps and ingredients.

To get started, assemble your pecans into bunches of three and place a caramel chew on top of each one. Place them in the microwave for about 30 to 45 seconds to melt the caramel. Next, pour your NutriChocolates into a microwave-safe bowl and heat them in the microwave until they are melted. Just make sure to check on them every five to 10 seconds to prevent burning! Pour the melted chocolate equally over each caramel pecan bite and allow the chocolate and caramel to harden before digging in.

Pro tip: If you love a sweet and salty treat, sprinkle a little coarse sea salt onto your caramel bites before they cool completely.

One serving of these 3-Ingredient Chocolate Pecan Caramel Bites contains 95 calories and counts as three Extras on the Nutrisystem program.
