Guilt-Free Toffee and Chocolate Squares: The Perfect Low-Carb Halloween Treat

When Halloween rolls around, resisting the temptation of sweet candies can be challenging, especially if you’re watching your sugar intake. Enter our sugar-free toffee and chocolate squares. Not only are they delectably sweet, but they’re also low carb. Here’s how to make these treats that won’t play tricks on your diet.

Making the Toffee Layer

Begin by melting one cup of unsalted butter in a saucepan. Add in one cup of your preferred brown sugar sweetener (I personally love using Lakanto’s golden monk fruit), two tablespoons of water, and half a teaspoon of salt. Stir this mixture over medium heat until everything is well-combined. Once you’ve achieved a smooth consistency, stop stirring and let the mixture come to a boil.

Monitor the temperature closely; when it reaches 300 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s time to turn off the heat. Now, stir in a teaspoon of vanilla extract to enhance the flavor. Pour this toffee mixture into a baking sheet. If you’re like me and aim for perfection, using a silicone mold is a game-changer. It ensures each piece is a flawless square.

Preparing the Chocolate Layer

While the toffee layer is cooling and setting, it’s time to prepare the decadent chocolate layer. Take a quarter cup of sugar-free chocolate chips and place them in a microwave-safe measuring cup. Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to this. Melt the mixture in the microwave using 30-second bursts, stirring between each interval to ensure even melting.

As your toffee layer cools, it will start to change in appearance, becoming more opaque. This change indicates that it’s hardening. Once all the toffee squares have this look, it’s time to apply the chocolate.

Carefully spoon your melted chocolate over each toffee square, spreading it evenly. For that extra touch of gourmet, sprinkle a dash of flaky salt on top. If you’re in the mood for some nutty crunch, crushed peanuts or pecans are delightful additions.

Lastly, refrigerate your squares for 1 to 2 hours to let them set completely.

And voilà! You now have guilt-free toffee and chocolate squares ready to be devoured. Dive into these, knowing you’re indulging in a treat that’s both delicious and diet-friendly. Happy Halloween!
