Caramel Squares a sugar-free treat ... gluten free, low carb

Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' says that "at just 1g net carb per square, these are an absolute winner" ... and who am I to argue!

"They are a triple layer keto/low carb treat. And the yummy caramel doesn’t require 30 minutes of boiling ... it's real food real easy." It does make a delicious occasional treat!

Ingredients:
Almond Vanilla Base
150 g almond meal/flour
50 g butter melted
2 tbsp. granulated sweetener, of choice - or more to your taste
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg medium

Salted Sugar-Free Caramel Filling
330 g butter
150 g sour cream
4 tbsp. granulated sweetener, golden flavour or more to your taste

Chocolate Topping
100 g 90% (dark) chocolate
25 g butter

For cooking instructions please see Libby's 'Ditch The Carbs' site here 

You may also find her 'ultimate guide to low carb sweeteners' helpful. Libby explains how to use each one and what to look for when you buy them because not all low carb sweeteners are created equally. It can be incredibly confusing when you are just starting to live sugar free ...

Ummm, such goodness but I must confess to not being able to make batches of "anything" like this because I have no will power when it's in the house. Even though I freeze things it's like they continually call out my name. I do much better just having a treat once in a blue moon.
