Keto Twix Bars
A dark chocolate "Twix" bar to satisfy that craving for the candy. Can substitute with milk chocolate for the classic version.
- 1.5 cup almond flour
- 4 oz butter melted
- 1 tbsp granulated sweetener @lakantosweetener
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 pinch salt
- 1/3 cup granulated sweetener @lakantosweetener
- 1/3 cup Xylitol
- 6 oz heavy cream
- 5 oz butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 pinch salt
- 20 oz Lily's Sweet Chocolate Dark Chocolate Baking Bars
Mix all ingredients and knead until smooth. Press into rectangular 1/2 inch dough (length should be the size of candy bar). Refrigerate for an hour.
Cut dough into 8 candy bar sized cookies. Using the tip of a fork, lightly prick several holes on the top of the dough.
Bake at 350F for 10 minutes. Let cool completely.
Combine 4 oz of the butter with the sweetener and cream over medium heat. Stir until sweetener is dissolved.
Add the vanilla.
Cook until it is a deep golden brown (about 20 min). As soon as it reaches that deep color (right before burning) remove from the heat and immediately add the additional 1 oz butter and salt. Stir until smooth and cool for 10 minutes.
Pour caramel onto parchment paper, and cool in fridge for about 30 minutes.
Assemble Candy Bars
Cut caramel into cookie sized strips and place on top of cookies.
Melt chocolate using a double broiler method, until smooth.
Over a cooling rack, pour melted chocolate on top of bars. Reserve extra chocolate. Cool in fridge till set.
Remove bars from rack (I used a little heat to release the bottom), and dip the bottom of bars in re-warmed reserved chocolate. Return to fridge till fully set.
