This recipe makes approximately 2 cups of caramel sauce, which equates to around 16 servings.


1. Prepare the Ingredients:
  • Ensure that all the necessary ingredients are collected and prepared, with accurate measurements, in order to facilitate their immediate usage.
2. Melt the Butter:
  • The unsalted butter should be melted in a saucepan placed over medium heat. Don’t stir it too much, and let it cook until it turns a light golden brown color. This should take about 4-5 minutes.
3. Add Sweetener:
  • Slowly add the powdered erythritol while the heat is turned down to low. Keep whisking until the sweetener is fully mixed in with the butter that has melted.
4. Heat the Cream:
  • Slowly add the heavy cream while mixing all the time. Allow the mixture to slowly boil. Whisk for another two to three minutes.
5. Add Vanilla and Salt:
  • Take the pan off the heat and add the salt and vanilla extract. The vanilla will make it taste great, and the salt will make the caramel taste better.
6. Cool and Serve:
  • Take a break and let the caramel sauce cool down. It will get thicker as it cools down. When it’s the right consistency, you can use it as a dipping sauce or drizzle it over your favorite keto treats.
7. Store for Later:
  • If you have leftovers, store your keto caramel sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You can gently reheat it when you’re ready to use it again.
