When I perfected Keto Twix bars a few months back, I was quick to proclaim them as my new favorite chocolate bars. But they may have just been surpassed by these!

A few notes about these bars — I store and eat these straight out of the freezer, however you can also store them in the fridge. The homemade keto caramel may be a little runnier if stored in the fridge, but the chocolate coating will hold it in place. Alternatively you can cook the keto caramel longer to make it thicker if you prefer.

When coating the bars, you need to work quickly. One option to get the nicest, smoothest coating is to sit the bars on a wire rack and pour the chocolate over the bars. This prevents pooling around the bottom edges, although it can get a bit messy underneath!

Alternatively, you can turn this into a slice instead of making bars like I did in this Keto Caramel Slice. To do this, simply halve the amount of chocolate, melt as normal, and pour over the low-carb caramel peanut layer.

Are Peanuts a Healthy Keto Option?

Just like other legumes, peanuts contain anti-nutrients that can reduce their nutritional value and may cause health issues in susceptible individuals. Soaking and/or cooking peanuts, choosing organic peanuts or peanut butter, and limiting portion sizes and frequency are key to maximising their benefits while reducing potential risks.

Instructions

  1. To make the nougat layer, soak the cashews at least 4 hours (or overnight). Drain and rinse well.

  2. Add to a food processor or blender with almond flour, coconut cream, Swerve and coconut oil. Blend until combined and smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.

  3. Pour into a small lined slice or loaf tin (I use a 10 x 23 cm/ 4.5 x 9” loaf tin) and place in freezer while you make the next layer.
  4. Make the Keto Caramel Sauce by following the directions here. Continue to simmer an additional 10 minutes to allow it to thicken more, and then remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before pouring it over the nougat layer.
  5. Sprinkle with the peanuts, pressing them gently into the caramel. Place the tray in the freezer and cool for around 30 minutes. You want it to be cool and firm, but not completely frozen.

  6. Remove the tray from the freezer and remove the slice. Use a really sharp knife to cut the slice into bars.
  7. Place the bars on a flat tray and return to the freezer to freeze completely — this will help when coating them with chocolate.

  8. Melt the chocolate in a small saucepan over the lowest heat on the stove.
  9. Dip each frozen bar into the chocolate and use a spoon to coat complete. You may want to keep some of the bars in the fridge or freezer while you work so that they stay hard for the coating.

  10. Transfer the coated chocolate bars to a tray lined with baking paper, and place in the fridge for the chocolate to set. Allow at least an hour before eating so that the caramel can defrost and soften. Keto Snickers Bars
  11. Store in the fridge up to 10 days or up to three months in the freezer. Keto Snickers Bars

Snickers was my favorite candy bar before changing my eating habits to Keto.  I was excited to give this recipe a try.
I made these and they were good, a little sweet for my taste now days.   I'll reduce the Swerve in the nougat next time.   Mine don't look as nice as the picture but I didn't have a slice pan.   I used a lined loaf pan and cut them the best I could.   The nougat and caramel started to soften while I had them all out to dip in the chocolate.   Next time I'll only take a few out at a time.   Once dipped I put them all back into the freezer.   I'll grab one when I want one but leave them in the freezer.
FYI...I used the Sukin gold and vegetable glycerin in my bars.  I ended up with around 26 servings between the size of a mini or fun-size of the recipes name sake.

Thank you April, I'll add this to the notes, good to know! Isn't that amazing how little sweetener you get used to when you follow keto? These days I prefer my treats unsweetened or with just a touch of sweetener.
