The best Keto-friendly Caramel Sauce (featuring toffee crunch crumbs)!

Jul 22, 2021

This 10 minute gooey, smooth and indulgent caramel sauce is about to change your life! And, the best thing is it’s sugar-free and free from harmful chemicals which are typically found in those store-bought preserved caramel sauces.

Our friends at @fooddreamer inspired us with their gooey sugar-free caramel sauce, which we've combined with a delicious keto-friendly plant-based ice cream, and a wee sprinkling of our very own Hurricane's Toffee Crunch crumbs for that extra crunchy texture! It’s the perfect wintery after-dinner treat that takes no time at all! Here’s what you’ll need: 


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 tbsp SWEETNZ Golden Brown Sweetener
  • 3 tbsp Nativa Sugar substitute
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp kosher or sea salt
  • 2 tbsp water


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, SWEETNZ Golden Brown Sweetener, and Nativa Sugar substitute. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 to 5 minutes (be careful not to burn it).
  2. Remove from heat and add cream. The mixture will bubble vigorously.
  3. Sprinkle with xanthan gum and whisk vigorously to combine. Add salt.
  4. Return mixture to heat and boil 1 more minute. Let cool to lukewarm and stir in water until well combined.
  5. For salted caramel, simply stir in additional salt at the end.
  6. Scoop some Halo Top Ice cream into a bowl, sprinkle our Hurricane's Toffee Crunch crumbs, and pour over your decadent golden brown gooey caramel sauce.
  7. Any leftover sauce can be stored in the fridge for a week or so. Just gently reheat in the microwave or in a saucepan to make it pourable again.
