Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup stevia sweetened chocolate chips OR dark chocolate broken into pieces 300g
  • 1 tbsp butter or coconut oil 15g
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds or pecans 60g
  • 1/2 serving of keto caramel sauce only make half of the recipe!

Instructions

  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a microwavable bowl, add your chocolate chips and butter OR coconut oil.
  • Microwave in 30s increments, stirring in between until fully melted.
  • Once the chocolate is melted, spread it as best as you can over the parchment paper to make a rectangle.
  • Sprinkle the top of the chocolate with the chopped almonds or pecans.
  • Place the bark in the freezer to harden while you make your caramel sauce.
  • To make the keto caramel sauce, follow the directions HERE but remember to half the recipe for this bark unless you want leftover caramel sauce for something else.
  • Scrape your caramel sauce into a measuring cup to make it easy to pour. Let it cool a bit.
  • Remove the bark from the fridge and drizzle the caramel over the top of it.
  • Place the bark back in the freezer once more and let it chill until the caramel solidifies. (About 30min-1 hour)
  • Remove from the freezer and break into chunks. Enjoy your Keto Chocolate Caramel Bark!

Notes

  • See above in the post for storage instructions
  • If you choose to use butter in this recipe rather than coconut oil, just know that it can sometimes seize up the chocolate chips so the mixture becomes thick. You should still be able to spread the chocolate, it may just be a little more difficult and more like spreading thick cake batter. BUT the butter will also prevent the chocolate from melting in your hands.
  • Coconut oil on the other hand will help the chocolate become more smooth and glossy BUT the downside is that the bark will melt more quickly in your hands. 
  • Feel free to use a different type of chopped nuts, add coconut or any other toppings you'd like!
  • When making the caramel sauce, if you went a deeper colour and flavour, add just a few drops of molasses. Molasses is low on the glycemic index, even lower when mixed into a high fat recipe, and with such a small amount added, it's minuscule and will not spike your insulin levels!
