Keto Caramel Slice

Yes you read right – KETO caramel slice is here!

I have been searching for a recipe for a keto caramel slice since I first started on keto a few years ago, and every link I followed was a dead end.

There are a few websites promising keto caramel slice out there, but every link I clicked, the post had been removed!

I found a couple of recipes but they just weren’t rich and decadent enough.

After experimenting with a number of different bases, caramels and chocolate ganache toppings, this is by far my favourite.

You can make this as a half recipe in a smaller baking tin as well.

This might be handy if you don’t want the temptation of an ENTIRE tray of Keto Caramel Slice sitting in the fridge.

As always, the quality of your ingredients is important here.

I like to use Kerrygold butter (available at Woolworths here in Aus).

For the dark chocolate ganache, finding the lowest sugar content is important to ensure you don’t accidentally down a bucket load of sugar.

I buy this Xylitol from iherb. 

Cut it into small squares to ensure you don’t go crazy on them.

These little Keto caramel slice squares are fat loaded and have a fair amount of almond flour and xylitol.

Check out how super easy this Keto Caramel Slice is in the video below.

That means this is a sometimes treat lovely people!

Great to make if you are entertaining, so everyone can enjoy them and they don’t call you from the fridge all week.

They really do, I can hear them now calling me to eat them… naughty things

I keep a couple in the fridge and then freeze the rest. They are just as delicious straight out of the freezer and it helps keep the caramel from oozing out the sides… If you aren’t into that of course. I personally like a bit of oozy caramel.

I just had a thought, maybe you could microwave these and serve with cold whipped cream?

It would be a big gooey mess but boy would it be decadent and delicious. Note to self, try this next time!

Using the lowest sugar chocolate is also important to keep the carb count down on these tasty little bites of Keto Caramel Slice.

The search is over! This caramel slice hits all the spots, with a buttery, biscuity base, a salty caramel and a decadent dark chocolate ganache. 

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 30 Squares
Calories 192 kcal

Ingredients

Base

  • 1.5 cups almond flour fine
  • 4 tablespoons xylitol
  • Pinch Salt
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter cooled

Caramel

  • 280 grams butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 6 tablespoons xylitol

Chocolate Ganache

  • 200 grams dark chocolate 70 - 80%, low sugar
  • 120 grams heavy whipping cream

Instructions

Base

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a 20cm x 20cm tin with baking paper (or a half size if you are making a smaller batch)

  2. Combine the base ingredients well and press firmly into the tin in an even layer. 

  3. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes until just turning golden at the edges. 

Caramel

  1. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt the butter and xylitol over medium-low heat. Continue melting, stirring occasionally, until it is a dark golden brown colour. The darker you get it - without burning - the richer the caramel taste will be. 

  2. Once golden brown, stir in the heavy cream and simmer for a further 7-10 minutes until the caramel has thickened. Stir regularly. 

  3. Pour the caramel over the base and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes. Once done, refrigerate until completely cool and set. 

Chocolate Ganache

  1. Once the caramel and base is completely cooled, prepare the ganache. Chop the chocolate roughly and put In a microwave safe ceramic or glass bowl with the cream. 

  2. Microwave on 50% power for 1 - 2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds until the chocolate begins to melt. Continue stirring out of the microwave until it is evenly combined and glossy. Watch the microwave very closely to ensure it doesn't burn. 

  3. Spread the ganache over the caramel and refrigerate until set. Cut into small squares.

  4. Keep refrigerated.

  • MMMMM im going to make this soon!!! If I used Lindt 90% dark choc and ad a bit a sweetener would that be oK and also lower the carb count even further?

    • Hi Karen! Yes I would definitely use Lindt 90%. I don’t think it would even really need the sweetener as the caramel and base are quite sweet!

    • I just made this – AAHHHMMMMAAAZING!! Used 2 x blocks of Lindt 90%, no cream. I tempered the chocolate in my thermi and poured over set caramel. Absolutely perfect – chocolate with a ‘crack’ ……… my husband said the best EVER LCHF dessert!!

    • Hi Georgia, Xylitol is one for one as sweet as sugar – I think stevia might be a bit sweeter? I’d look into whether it is sweeter and tone down the caramel accordingly. I also don’t know that it would dissolve for the caramel layer in the same way, another reader mentioned that there’s crystallised when using stevia.

  • Thanks for a great recipe. I was scared of burning the sugar, (Nativia,) and butter. It didn’t thicken.I’m not sure if it was using Nativia. I waited a long time after adding the cream around 15 mins. I did cheat and add a little cornflour and it worked well. The base and ganache were great too. I used Lindt milk chocolate, sugar free. It turned out really well. Thanks.

    • Hi Liz, I have had other people not get the thickening effect when using different sweeteners as well, and even had this problem myself when trialling a new sweetener. It seems to be the xylitol that helps it thicken up once in the fridge!
