Low Carb Snacks - the book

These low carb pecan caramels are one of the new recipes created for the book, and they are SO good that I just had to share them with you here. They're kind of like a brittle or buttery bark, and only require three ingredients!

How to Make Low Carb Pecan Caramel Bites

Toast the pecans in a preheated oven for 5 minutes, then set them aside. This gives them a wonderfully deep flavor and releases their natural oils.

Add butter to a non-stick saucepan, place over a medium heat. Add some sweetener (I used granular Swerve but something like Lakanto would also work well), and cook over a medium heat until the mixture is liquid and the sweetener has completely dissolved.

Continue to cook until it starts to darken and turns light brown, rather than dark yellow. Stir frequently and don't walk away from it as it can turn color quickly! Add the toasted pecans and stir well.
