Ingredients

Shortbread

  • 2 tablespoons Wholesome Allulose granulated
  • 1/4 cup butter butter softened
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Caramel

  • 1 cup Wholesome Allulose granulated
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Chocolate
  • 6 ounces sugar-free chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons butter or coconut oil

How To Make

This recipe is actually really easy. The part that takes a bit long is to let it set up in the fridge, but it’s completely worth the time.

  • First step is to make a shortbread layer and bake it in a parchment-lined pan. Combine all the shortbread ingredients which will form a dough and put it in a pan. You can use your fingers to spread the dough evenly. Heat it for 20 minutes until it turns golden brown.
  • Second step is to make the caramel so take a sauce pan and whisk together the heavy cream and allulose. Combine until it turns brown and thick. This will take 10-20 minutes and that depends on the size of pot you have and how hot your stove-top is. If you use a large pot or deep pan it will help the caramel turn brown faster. After caramel turns golden and the mixture has reduced by more than half, let caramel cool for 10-15 minutes, then put it over the already made shortbread.
  • Melt sugar-free chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds at a time. Stir and keep repeating until it becomes soft. Put butter and whisk to absorb and pour it on top of the caramel layer. Shake the pan gently so the chocolate covers all of the caramel.
  • You can put sea salt and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. It should be firm when it’s ready. Then slice it into 16 pieces and keep in the fridge for 2 weeks (airtight).
