Servings: 16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups pecans
  • 1/3 cup natural cashew butter no sugar added
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 8 drops vanilla monk fruit or 15-20 drops vanilla stevia, to taste
  • 1/2 Tbs vanilla
  • Dash of pink salt
  • 1 oz dark chocolate sugar-free if desired
  • sprinkle of coarse sea salt optional

Instructions

  • Toast pecans in a dry skillet over medium heat for 5-9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden and fragrant (watch them so they don't burn!) Set aside to cool.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together caramel ingredients (gently warm your coconut oil if it's too hard). Taste and adjust for sweetness.
  • Add in pecans and stir to coat.
  • Spread caramel pecans in a single layer onto a large plate or small rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper (not spread out too far)
  • Drizzle with melted chocolate. Sprinkle with coarse salt, if desired.
  • Freeze until set (30-60 minutes) then break into chunks. ENJOY! :)
