Tender shortbread crust topped with sugar free caramel and milk chocolate.


Ingredients

    Crust
  • 1-1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered Swerve Sweetener
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4-1/2 tablespoons butter melted
  • Caramel Filing
  • 1/2 cup Swerve Brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup xylitol
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Topping
  • 4 ounce sugar free milk chocolate chopped

Directions

    Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a 9×9″ pan with parchment paper, allowing some overhand for easy removal.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, and salt. Stir in the melted butter until the dough begins to clump together.
  3. Press mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared baking pan and bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden brown. Remove and let cool completely.
  4. Caramel Filling
  5. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the Swerve, butter, and xylitol. Bring to a boil and cook 3 to 5 minutes, until bubbling and the sweeteners have dissolved.
  6. Remove from heat and add the cream and vanilla. The mixture will bubble vigorously. Sprinkle the surface with the xanthan gum and whisk vigorously to combine. Whisk in the salt.
  7. Bring the mixture back to a boil, and cook another 2 to 3 minutes, until bubbling thickly.
  8. Remove from heat and let caramel cool about 10 minutes, until thickened but still pourable. Pour over the cooled crust, making sure to spread to the edges.
  9. Place the pan in the freezer 1 to 2 hours to set the caramel.
  10. Topping
  11. Set a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Do not allow the bottom of the bowl to touch the water. Add the milk chocolate and stir until melted.
  12. Pour the chocolate over the caramel and spread to edges with a knife or offset spatula.
  13. Refrigerate 30 minutes to set the chocolate before cutting into bars. You can cut long thin “Twix” bars or squares, your choice!

I've been interested in healthy living for a couple of years and have been trying to find ways to do this myself and to share information to the public.
