These Easy Keto Salted Butterscotch Nut Clusters are the best holiday treat for any party! Low Carb, Gluten Free, Sugar Free and no baking required!
Low Carb Nut Clusters
Easy recipes for the holidays are my favorite. Making a perfect little dessert to share and bring to a party and that no one knows is low carb or keto makes me super happy. I love the surprising faces of friends when they they try something for the first time but clearly can not believe they are eating something without sugar. I live for those moments. This recipe is one that will certainly get those jaws dropping when they taste these delicious butterscotch flavored caramel nut clusters.
You don't have to use pecans, any nut you like will work. Almonds would be nice or even walnut, but my preference is definitely pecans.
Low Carb Caramel
Making a quick homemade low carb caramel sauce is the key to many fabulous desserts, like my Samoa pie and my Salted Caramel Snickerdoodle Cookies. It's a fairly quick and easy recipe, just needing a few specific ingredients to get that traditional caramel sauce stickiness we're looking for.
Whether or not you think you might be all day baking for Christmas, I urge you to make one more treat for your dessert tray, these Nut Clusters. They are well worth your time!
