A low carb Snickers bar recipe that makes a delicious candy treat that can be enjoyed without guilt. Layering in a baking pan makes it quick and easy.
When I posted the giveaway contest asking what kind of low carb food recipes people were looking for, I had to ask myself that same question.
After thinking about the question, the one thing I wanted was a low carb Snickers bar that wouldn’t give me digestive distress. Occasionally, I buy the Atkins Caramel Chocolate Peanut Nougat Bar which is the closest low carb substitute I’ve found for a Snickers candy bar. The only problem with the Atkins bar is that I pay for the snack later because of the sugar alcohols used.
I came up with a low carb peanut butter caramel recipe that tastes just like the inside of a Snickers candy bar. It’s sweetened with a mix of stevia and erythritol and it is a soft caramel that keeps best in the refrigerator.
I thought about freezing it and cutting it into squares so that it could be dipped in chocolate, but that seemed like too much work for me.
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I like to keep my recipes simple. Therefore, I just used the same chocolate topping from the Peanut Butter Cup Square recipe I posted earlier.
The caramel layer remains soft so cutting the squares will crack the chocolate a little. If you have some experience making hand dipped candies, you may want to try coating small rectangular pieces of the caramel in chocolate to get the real Snickers bar look. Coating the filling completely in chocolate would give it the more authentic candy bar look and taste. And, it would help hold the shape of the caramel filling as well as be pretty enough for gift giving!
