Sugar Free Pecan Turtle Candies

Ingredients:
  1. 6 tbsp Swerve Brown
  2. 3 tbsp Bocha Sweet (or allulose or xylitol)
  3. 5 tbsp butter divided
  4. 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  5. 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  6. 1/4 tsp sea salt
  7. 2 cups pecan halves
  8. 4 ounces sugar free dark chocolate chopped
  9. More sea salt for sprinkling, if desired

Instructions:
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the sweeteners and 4 tablespoons of the butter. Bring to a boil and cook 3 to 5 minutes, watching carefully so it doesn't burn. Remove from heat and add the cream. The mixture will bubble vigorously. 
  • Return the mixture to heat and bring back to a boil. Boil 3 minutes, watching carefully. Sprinkle the surface with xanthan gum and whisk to combine. Whisk in the salt. Let the caramel cool until thickened but still pourable, about 1 hour
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat. Spread the pecans out on the mat in a single later and bake 7 to 10 minutes, until toasted. Arrange the pecans in clusters of 3 or 4, making about 20 to 24 clusters.
