caramel

sauce

recipe

 

Adapted from: https://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/the-best-low-carb-caramel-sauce/

 

 

Serving Size: 2 Tbsp (30ml)

Yield: 20 servings 

 

 

 

  • 6 Tbsp (?g) powdered erythritol OR xylitol // OR Swerve confectioner's sweetener

  • 1/2 cup (112g) butter, room temperature

  • 1.5 cup (360ml) hot water

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (omit if also using salted butter) 

  • 1/2 tsp caramel flavoring (OMIT if using caramel flavored stevia) 

  • 2 Tbsp (15ml) molasses* // OR Sukrin fiber syrup // OR isomalt // OR sorbitol

  • 1/2 tsp liquid stevia // OR caramel flavored stevia ​​

  • tsp. gelatin powder

  • 1/2 cup water cold

  •  

    (optional) tsp. vanilla extract

    *Molasses IS a form of sugar, but the total carbs that such a tiny amount adds to the entire recipe is very very low, and it is much more affordable than the alternatives.

 

For Salted Caramel:

+ 1/2 tsp (1g) sea salt (only use 1/4 tsp if also using salted butter) 

 

 

1. Melt together the butter, erythritol / Swerve, and the molasses in a medium-sized pot over medium heat and let simmer for 2-4 minutes, or until it darkens slightly in color (be careful not to let it burn or start smoking!).

 

2. Remove the pot from the heat and add the warm whipping cream, then sprinkle over the xanthan gum and whisk very quickly and thoroughly to incorporate.
 

3. Bring back to a boil, then let simmer for 1 more minute before turning off the heat and adding the remaining ingredients. Whisk very thoroughly (ideally using an immersion blender), then let the caramel cool to room temperature.

 

4. Once the caramel is lukewarm (room temperature), transfer it to a glass jar or large squeeze bottle and store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

 

 

Note: This caramel is designed to be pourable straight out of the fridge, so it will seem very liquidy when warm.

ABOUT TPH

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
