While my boyfriend was eating his dessert, I looked over at his plate and said “Stop. Mind if I take a picture?” Scroll ➡️➡️➡️ to the second slide to see how you 👌properly👌 eat a chocolate bowl (and how to make one)!
All the thank yous and 😘😘 to @choczero for sending me their Dipping Cups and Caramel Syrup to try! We are seriously in love with all their products because of the taste (of course), but especially when you consider the fact that they are so sugar free, they don’t even use sugar alcohols! (“Whaaaat?!”, “I know!”)
Low carb Twix, cupcakes, and now Snickers? Why isn’t EVERYONE doing keto? I’m so happy with this recipe from lowcarbyum! Even though this recipe made 35 bars… they did not last long…and they’re only 55 calories/0.9g net carbs each! 👏

These came out soooooo damn well. A new favorite, even without the caramel topping! Since I had to make a batch of the caramel, anyway, for the filling (and I really didn’t want to bother calculating a half recipe), I just used the rest for the topping as directed. Something that really added to it was the pecan crust, though; it’s game changing! You’ll want to use it as the crust for eeeeeverything!
Macros and pricing:
Based on the products we used, the cost of these ingredients will be roughly $10.79 and make 16 bars. You can cut them in half to make 32 bars, and/or leave off the caramel topping thus reducing the carbs; however the information below is based on 16 bars WITH the caramel topping.

Oh my yum! Tip: We found that if you store these in the freezer…they taste like Twix ice cream bars. 😊 We ended up doubling the chocolate to cover all sides of the bar, but even with doing that these are only 1.97 net carbs each. You can also follow the original recipe to make layered bars, instead, which is easier. 😄

Fat – 8.5g
Total carbs – 10g
Net carbs – 2g
Protein – 1.2g
1¼ cups almond flour
¼ cup butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
¼ cup Swerve Sweetener
½ tsp xanthan gum
⅛ tsp salt
¼ cup butter
6 tbsp Swerve Sweetener
2 tbsp coconut sugar
½ cup heavy cream
½ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp xanthan gum
¼ tsp salt
8 oz sugar free chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325F and line a 9×9 inch baking pan with parchment paper, allowing some overhang for easy removal.
In a food processor, combine almond flour, butter pieces, sweetener, xanthan gum and salt. Pulse until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Press mixture firmly into the bottom of prepared baking pan and bake 15 minutes. Remove and let cool.
For the caramel, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, Swerve, and coconut sugar. Bring to a boil and cook 3 to 5 minutes (be careful not to burn it).
Remove from heat and add cream and vanilla.
Sprinkle with xanthan gum and whisk to combine. Whisk in salt. Let caramel cool about 20 minutes, until thickened but still pourable.
Pour over crust and set the whole pan in the freezer for at least a couple hours.
For the chocolate, set a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Do not allow bottom of bowl to touch water. Add chopped milk chocolate and stir until melted. (My Crock Pot came with a Little Dipper which is perfect for chocolate)
Dip one side of the frozen bar in the cooled chocolate and use scraper or spatula to smooth chocolate and return the excess to the bowl. Do this to all the bars and place back in the freezer for a few minutes. The chocolate will begin to harden/freeze pretty quickly after applying to the frozen bar.
Repeat the previous step until all sides of the bars are covered in chocolate and return to freezer.
