Interested in a super easy, super tasty Keto Brick recipe? This "Brick Bark" can be made with any flavor of Keto Brick, (we used the Chocolate Maple Bacon.) It's great by itself or as a topper to something else. Feel free to get creative and include some additional add-ons too!
What you’ll need:
- 1 brick
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- 2T monk fruit sweetener
- ⅛t Xanthan Gum (optional, but helps thicken caramel quicker)
- ¼ cup chopped pecans
The number of servings will depend on the type of mold or pan you’re using. For a bark, you’ll need a small flat pan with raised edges or a baking sheet large enough to prevent spillover.
Melt the brick and spread onto your pan. If you have a small pan as I used, you can use cling wrap for easy removal and clean up. If you’re using a large baking sheet, you can use a silicone mat or parchment paper.
While the brick is firming up (chill in the fridge), place a bottom-heavy pot or non-stick pan on medium heat. Add cream and sweetener. This will take time to caramelize and thicken — even longer without the help of Xanthan Gum. (Note: Most grocery stores carry small packets in the baking aisle.)
Once thickened, fold in chopped pecans.
When the brick has cooled and solidified, pour the caramel and spread evenly. Chill again until the brick and caramel have combined. You can break into uneven pieces or into even portions for tracking.
