Directions:

1. First bake the keto shortbread. Press the shortbread cookie dough evenly and firmly into a parchment-lined loaf pan and score the top for easier cutting later (optional). Bake at 300F / 150C for 20 minutes or until the edges are light golden brown.

2. Next, pour over the freshly made still-warm chewy keto caramel OR, make the easy cheater's caramel: melt the allulose or erythritol with a tablespoon of water, once fully melted, whisk in the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. If the fat separates out, add an additional tablespoon of hot water at a time until it pulls together. Immediately pour over the baked shortbread, smooth out the top, then freeze for 20-30 minutes.

3. Last, melt the keto chocolate gently over a double boiler OR in the microwave using 20 second bursts and stirring between each. alternatively, melt the cacao powder and fat together and add the liquid stevia, mix well. Pour your choice of keto chocolate over the firm keto caramel layer, tap the pan to spread it evenly. Freeze for another 20 minutes. Remove the set twix bar "loaf" from the pan and slice evenly using a hot knife. Dip the knife in hot water and clean between each cut for smooth slices.
