This re-imagined version of Caramel Slice, a childhood favorite is the perfect little treat for when you need a little indulgence without the massive sugar hit. This tasty keto fat bomb is the ideal high-fat treat if you keep your carb intake low.

This slice is quick and easy to make, but a few tips to make it more fool-proof for you!

  • The base layer should hold together well on its own, but if it seems a little crumbly after processing, add a teaspoon or two of water which will help hold it together.
  • Don’t skip the browning of the sugar here — it helps to create the colour and flavour of the caramel layer. I don’t like overly-sweet sweets (oxymoron much!?) but if you do, I’d suggest you taste the caramel mix before pouring it onto the slice, and adding a little extra erythritol or stevia for a sweeter caramel.
  • I use the same saucepan to make the caramel and melt the chocolate, which saves on washing up — always a welcome step!

Consider Using Allulose

Chilled desserts that use erythritol-based sweeteners tend to crystallize slightly and although adding glycerine helps minimise this effect, your caramel won't be super smooth. For very smooth results, swap the erythritol-based sweeteners for allulose. Allulose is a healthy low-carb sweetener, although it's less common and can be pricey. The carb count is the same as for erythritol, and it’s as sweet as sugar. Unlike erythritol, it does not crystallize and is a great option in chilled desserts.

Tips

Instructions

  1. To make base layer, add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until combined. The mixture should appear crumbly, but should hold when pressed together between two fingers.
  2. Press firmly into a loaf pan or small slice pan (15 x 23 cm/ 6 x 9 inches). Place in the freezer while you make the caramel layer.

  3. To make the caramel, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium to low heat, stirring constantly, until it’s started to brown.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until combined, then reduce heat until just simmering, and cook 5-10 minutes or until it starts to thicken. Note that it will continue to thicken as it cools.

  7. Once set, cut into squares or bars, and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
    To get 18 small squares: make 2 cuts lengthwise and 5 cuts widthwise. Alternatively to make 12 large bars: make 2 cuts lengthwise and 3 cuts widthwise. Keto Chocolate Caramel Slice Keeps up to 10 days in the fridge, or two months in the freezer. Keto Chocolate Caramel Slice

Can you please suggest any options or alternatives for dark chocolate?

Hi Kim, you could use sugar-free milk chocolate (likeLily's). If you want to avoid chocolate completely, you could make a layer from a combination of the following ingredients: coconut oil (or cacao butter), coconut butter (Foolproof Homemade Coconut Butter), sweeteners and vanilla or cinnamon. This is also very tasty to use as a layer: Keto Coconut Fat Bombs
I hope this helps! 😊

My husband and I absolutely love this slice. We’ve altered slightly depending on what we have on hand, swapping out almond butter for cashew/coconut butter, or liquid stevia with sugar-free maple and it’s just so delicious.
So we just wanted to say thank you for sharing this awesome sweet, keto treat ❤️

Thank you Manu, I'm glad you enjoyed!

Do I have to use a bit butter in it? Will anything go wrong if I omit it?

It's better if you use it (texture). If you want to use a nut-free caramel recipe, try this one: The Best Keto & Paleo Caramel Sauce
