Sugar Free Low Carb "Snickers Bar" Candy

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 substitute for a 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.
