Keto Chocolate Caramel Pecan Clusters

Keto Chocolate Caramel Pecan Clusters – I really love making things to snack on around the holidays that is easy to share with friends or bring to Christmas parties. These are surprisingly filling and not too sweet with the dark chocolate on top. I made up this recipe when I was trying to make a keto version of Turtles, those caramel chocolate candies of my childhood. I ended up with clusters and they did not disappoint. They’re easy to make and non-keto people love them too!

I’ve made these up to a week ahead of time. As long as you keep them in the freezer, they should stay fresh for a while. While they can set out at room temperature, just make sure they it isn’t too hot inside, or they do start to melt a bit.

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup pecans, whole or pieces
  • 3 tablespoons Pyure or sweetener of your choice
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 ounces dark chocolate, or any sugar free variety

Directions

Line a large baking sheet, or two, with parchment paper. Divide your pecans into small piles. You should have 18-20.

cooking

In a small saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons of butter. Let it get slightly brown and then add your cream. Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes then add your sweetener, vanilla and pinch of salt.

cooking

Let the mixture simmer for another 5-10 minutes, whisking frequently once it starts to get dark and thicken.

cooking

Take off the heat and spoon the mixture over the pecans until they are covered. About half to one tablespoons of the caramel depending on the size of the clusters. Just make sure all of the pieces are covered so they will stick together.

Pop your baking sheet in the freezer to firm them up while you make the chocolate to drizzle on top.

Chop your chocolate, then combine with a tablespoon of butter in a bowl over a pot of boiling water. You can use a double boiler if you have it. Stir the mixture constantly until the chocolate is completely melted.

Pull your baking sheet out of the freezer and drizzle over the top of your clusters. You can drizzle it lightly or put thicker globs of chocolate if you really love chocolate. I like somewhere in-between.
