Keto Caramel Sauce

Recipe and content provided by Tara Wright

This Keto Caramel Sauce is just the thing for creating indulgent drinks such as a Low-Carb Caramel Macchiato. It’s amazing drizzled over some keto ice cream or my infamous ‘quick’ Keto Cheesecake dessert. This sauce is quick and easy to make and stores in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container for a few weeks.

The best thing about this sauce is that it only thickens slightly in the refrigerator, making it perfect for whipping up drinks and drizzling over desserts. It’s a great topping for treats such as keto ice cream on top of a fudgy keto brownie with a drizzle of low carb caramel sauce. Mmmmmmmm.

If you’re looking for a thick and creamy low carb caramel sauce that hardens in the refrigerator–check out my recipe here. This version of keto caramel thickens in the fridge and would even be great for making old fashioned rolled caramels for the holidays.

If you watch the video, you’ll notice I was experimenting with using a candy thermometer. I found that this step isn’t necessary. So, I’ve omitted it in the instructions.
