Old Keto Caramel Sauce (not recommended)

Find my new recipe here.

I’m keeping this old recipe here in case you made the Chocolate Turtles using this recipe and would like to continue doing so. I do not recommend this recipe because the erythritol in the Lakanto Classic is a sugar alcohol that does not dissolve completely and tends to crystalize and give a gritty texture.

The new recipe is made with granulated allulose which a real and rare sugar that has no glycemic effect. It tastes and behaves like sugar because it is sugar.

This old recipe has a tendency to “break” meaning the sauce will usually separate and you will have to process it in a small blender or Magic Bullet to get it smooth. It’s not impossible but it is a pain to deal with.

  1. In another 8 inch, non stick pan, on VERY LOW HEAT, melt the butter and cook till deep golden brown. DO NOT STIR. Should take 18-22 minutes.
  2. Pour in the cream slowly and stir gently to combine.
  3. Allow to simmer for 1-2 minutes. Add Lakanto Classic. Adding a pinch of salt is also an option. Stir continuously. Let it cook till it begins to thicken, about 5 mins. Turn off heat.
  4. If the mixture has broken and begun to separate,
  5. Allow it cool down a bit and then blend it in the blender for 1-2 minutes on high. I used my Magic Bullet.
  6. Pour the caramel into a glass jar. Continue to stir while it cools. Once cooled to room temperature (definitely not hot!) I like to place it in the fridge to speed up the hardening process. It can take anywhere from 30-50 mins in the refrigerator. You’re looking for the consistency of smooth peanut butter. If it separates again during the cooling process, stir with a spoon until it’s combined and smooth, no need to put it back in the blender.
  7. The end results should be smooth and creamy, dulce de leche type caramel, almost the consistency of smooth peanut butter. If it’s too runny, leave it in the fridge for a little while longer. If it’s too thick, place the jar in a bowl of warm water.
