Pineapple and coconut go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s one of those combinations that sounds too simple to be phenomenal, but when those flavors hit your tastebuds… it just feels right. Virgin pina coladas were one of my favorite things to order with dinner when I was a kid (as opposed to a soda, though I’m not sure the pina colada was much healthier), and now, pineapple is one of my favorite things to pair with the coconut you’ll see in nearly every AIP-friendly treat. With just five ingredients, these Pina Colada Candies are ridiculously simple. At the same time, they’e so unique they’ll impress anyone you happen to serve them to. They have a gummy texture that varies from soft to chewy depending on how long you cook them and how much honey you add–but pay attention while they’re on the stove, because they can and will burn if you let them get too dry. It’s the kind of recipe that looks intimidating until you get started. Just follow the instructions and you’ll be enjoying your candies in no time!
