Low Carb Keto Peanut Caramel
My desire for a caramel center to my Keto Chocolate Peanut Bombs had me searching for different recipes and ideas for something simple, quick and versatile and this was the result. My Low Carb Peanut Caramel is a basic version of the recipe. This isn’t a runny caramel but instead came out like a peanut fudge of sorts. Similarly, there are many many recipes out there that use xanthan gum, thickeners, and vegetable glycerin to give smooth caramel-like consistency. I didn’t use any of these as I was wanting a firmer caramel to add in as chunks into my chocolate bombs. After I cooked this, as it cooled it did start to set really well, so well that I was able to cut it into chunks just as I wanted. You could certainly layer this with the Keto Chocolate Bombs recipe as a second layer or combine the caramel with my low carb bounty bars. There are so many ways to make use of this sweet nutty caramel you will be making another batch before you know it.
