Sugar-Free Salted Caramel Sauce – Low Carb, Keto, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, THM S
Salted caramel. Oh yes. This sauce is divine. Since I created this recipe for my blog 4 years ago I’ve made it countless times and used it in a handful or two of recipes. It works to top cakes, use in candies, and spoon on ice cream. Or just eat with a spoon.
How to make Sugar-Free Salted Caramel Sauce:
This is really really easy to make. You have to cook it until it a second away from burning to get a really good caramel flavor. I can identify this as much by look as by the smell. It’s better to cook it slowly the first time you try to make it so you don’t end up actually burning it.
Ingredients for Sugar-Free Salted Caramel:
Great Low Carb Recipes to that use Caramel Sauce:
Combine butter, sweetener, and 1/2 cup of the cream over medium heat. Stir until sweetener is dissolved.
Add vanilla. Cook until it is a deep golden brown. As soon as it reached that deep color (right before burning) remove from the heat and immediately add the rest of the heavy cream. (If you are making this ahead use an extra 2 tablespoons). Stir until smooth.
Add 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and taste. I prefer my salted caramel slightly salty so I like this with the full 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt. Cool for 10 min before using.
This will solidify in the refrigerator but you can warm it again in the microwave until it is the right consistency for a sauce. Or if you eat it right from the fridge it has the texture of those little leaf-shaped maple sugar candies.
Notes on Sweeteners:
To sub in Swerve use 1.5 to 2 times the amount of sweetener called for.
