Keto English Toffee
Yield 12 Blocks
1 cup grass-fed butter, melted
1 cup Lily’s chocolate chips
1/4 cup almonds, finely chopped
1/2 cup golden Lakanto monk fruit sweetener
1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Step 1: Line a small loaf pan or square pan with parchment paper and spread finely chopped almonds evenly. Set aside.
Step 2: In a small saucepan, add in butter and monk fruit sweetener. Heat until the butter has melted and monk fruit sweetener has dissolved on low heat. Stir mixture regularly. Add in vanilla extract (optional) and stir into mixture.
Step 3: Once the mixture begins to bubble, place food thermometer in the center of the mixture and continue to stir the mixture every 30 seconds until thermometer reaches 300°F. Then remove from heat.
Step 4: Once you have removed from heat, continue to stir mixture to ensure the butter and sugar do not separate. After you have done this, pour the mixture into lined pan and let sit for a few minutes (about 10 minutes).
Step 5: Top with chocolate chips and cover with tin foil. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Once the chocolate has melted, use a spatula to evenly spread the mixture. Refrigerate until firm (about 30 minutes), then cut or break into even pieces.
Step 6: Enjoy!

If you like a more chewy texture, then don’t let it sit for too long before adding the chocolate chips and if you like more of a hard crack texture, you can let it cool for longer before adding the chocolate chips.
Unfortunately, using stevia, maple syrup, or honey won’t give the same texture as the monk fruit does when creating this recipe.
To Store: Store toffee in a sealable container. They will stay fresh for at least a week, and they can also be refrigerated. They can also be frozen, but once thawed the texture will not be the same.
