Keto Salted Caramel Turtle Candy


Step 1 Start by making the caramel. In a medium sized pot combine the water and Swerve. Set over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer for 5-7 minutes until it turns golden and has reduced. Whisk in the butter, cream, vanilla, and salt. If it’s too thin keep simmering until it is slightly thick. Note: it will thicken as it cools as well.

Step 2 Melt the chocolate and coconut oil over low heat until smooth, set aside.
Note: If using a chocolate bar, make sure to break it down to pieces to speed up melting. To prevent the chocolate from burning, melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler or a glass bowl on top of a small saucepan filled with a cup of water over a medium heat. Once completely melted, remove from the heat and set aside to cool down. The chocolate should not be hot when you use it for coating.

Step 3 Line a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper. Arrange the pecan halves into groups of three. Top with a dollop of caramel, a dollop of chocolate, and a sprinkle of salt.

Step 4 Chill until ready to serve. Store in the fridge for up to a week.
