Low Carb Keto Caramels

Low Carb Keto Caramels

I can't write about caramels without giving a shout out to Werther's Originals.  (below)

My grandmother never went anywhere without a couple in her purse.  I remember her handing them out during the most boring parts of church.  (And there were a lot of boring parts in church.)    

Now that I've foresworn sugar, I was relieved to find a sugar-free recipe for caramel candy.  This is the soft melt-in-your-mouth kind of caramel, not the hard kind.  I'd put them on the fudgey end of the caramel candy spectrum.

All you need is butter, cream and a little sweetener and you too can make this grandmotherly confection.  

First, you melt the butter over medium-low heat and cook it until it browns.  Add your sweetener and cream and cook until it thickens and becomes gooey.  Transfer the mixture to a bowl and whisk until it cools a bit.  Then pour it into candy molds and chill for a few hours until they harden.

And that's all it takes to make this classic treat, heralded by grandparents everywhere.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 6 tablespoons Powdered Swerve or equivalent sweetener*

Instructions

1.  Melt the butter in a small non-stick saucepan over medium low heat and let it cook until it is a light brown color.

2.  Add the cream and sweetener to the butter and continue to whisk until it begins to feel sticky and the sauce has thickened, about 2 minutes.

3.  Remove the pan from the heat and continue to stir until it has cooled slightly. (This will keep it from separating.)

4.  Pour into candy molds and refrigerate for 3-4 hours to harden.

*You can turn regular sweetener into powdered by mixing it in a blender or coffee grinder.
