Keto "Christmas Crack" Pecan Toffee

yield: 24 SERVINGS

prep time: 15 MINUTES

cook time: 1 HOUR 30 MINUTES

total time: 1 HOUR 45 MINUTES

Ingredients

Directions

1

Prep a 9x12 sheet pan with foil and spray it with nonstick spray.

2

In a saucepan on the stove, melt butter over medium heat. Add nuts and cook for about five minutes until they are slightly toasted.

3

In a separate bowl, mix in the heavy cream, vanilla extract, salt, and the Swerve. Add the mix to the saucepan on the stove and cook until thickened and golden. This takes about 5-8 minutes, and you can turn the heat up a little until bubbling... but BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN and stir it often, until smooth and thick.

 

Important note: Stir this mixture consistently and often to avoid burning during this step.

4

Once the mixture is thick, pour it onto the foil-lined tray, and smooth the mixture out until even. Refrigerate until firm to the touch (about half an hour).

5

In a bowl, break apart the chocolate candy bars and melt for 30 seconds at a time in the microwave, stopping to stir each time. Pour chocolate over the toffee and spread evenly.

6

Put the pan into the freezer and freeze until set, about half an hour. Then break apart the candy into about 24 pieces.

7

Be sure to store any leftover pieces in a covered container in the fridge or freezer as they could melt on the counter.

Keto "Christmas Crack" Pecan Toffee ingredients

Here are a few recipe tips to keep in mind when making Keto Christmas Crack Pecan Toffee:

  • For the chocolate, I used two Lily’s chocolate bars. They’re sweetened with stevia and super YUMMY. They also melt nicely in the microwave to pour over your toffee layer.
  • To avoid sticking, I covered a smaller 9×12 baking sheet with foil and then sprayed it with nonstick spray first. You could also line with parchment paper as well.

Keto "Christmas Crack" Pecan Toffee plated and ready for serving

Finally, a keto Christmas candy to indulge in!

In all honesty, the softer consistency isn’t exactly like traditional toffee that is super hard, but the taste is similar, and it does the trick if you’re having a sweet craving!

This treat will melt, so I suggest keeping it in a covered container in the fridge or freezer until ready to eat.

Check out what my teammate Jenna had to say about this keto toffee:

“I am such a big fan of Lily’s chocolate, the only way to make it even more delicious is to add it to keto toffee, YUM!
This turned out great! I appreciate how simple and easy to follow the process was, and love this toffee as a holiday treat!”

    OHHHHMMMMYYYDEARGAWDDDDD! I LOVE you guys for this recipe!! You might have just saved what’s left of this crappy 2020!!!

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Sheila! So glad you loved this recipe. I love it too❤ I have to hide it from myself or I eat to much, its that good lol!

    HI, Colin & Hip2Keto Team! I love your site and especially love the text messages I get for links to new recipes and ideas. I sincerely enjoy the Hip2Save and the Hip2Keto community, which is why I am wondering how you might feel about changing the name of this recipe. Let me explain: I understand that comparing food to crack is supposed to be absurd and a way to suggest that this great dessert is habit-forming (which it definitely looks like it could be). But the problem with the joke is that crack addiction isn’t funny. I am not trying to be political or oversensitive, I promise. I am simply betting that you might not have thought about it in this light. Of course, it’s your recipe and it’s not like I am going to stop loving your site or unsubscribe to your emails or texts – I’m just wondering if you might think about it. There are articles written by waaay smarter folks than I am who may be able to provide better insight as to why using the work crack to describe food is generally considered pejorative. As for me, I try to reach out to the people I care about – and that means you guys! Thanks for all you do and have a great Thanksgiving week!

    • Virginia

      I should have asked – please feel free NOT to post this – I am definitely not trying to make any points with the internet. Tensions are high enough in the US without adding anything to it! Thanks

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Hi Virginia! Thanks so much for your kind words and request. We sure love hearing from our readers. We do think that one of the reasons for the name is that you “crack” the pieces apart. I have passed this along to the team. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving week too! 💕
