First time making toffee? This recipe is so easy! This batch makes about 2-3 dozen depending on how big you break them.
Keto English Toffee
- 7 Oz Almonds About 1 and 1/2 cups
- 9 Oz Lilys Chocolate chips
- 1 Cup Monkfruit Sweetener Golden
- 1 Cup Regular Butter
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- Pecans crumbs for topping
- Place your almonds on a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake for 10 minute at 350 degrees. While thats going start the toffee. Put your butter, sugar and vanilla in a pot over medium low just to start.
- Once it is mostly melted turn up heat to medium high stirring constantly mixing making sure to not scorch it for about 10 minutes or more. (It will bubble up high and will almost look like foam rising.)
- After it has been at a boiling point for 5-10 minutes then turn off heat let sit for a couple of minutes before pouring over almonds, trust me it's hot! Do not touch it! Get your chocolate chips ready but let the toffee cool for a minute once it has been poured over almonds or the chips will just sink in the toffee.
- The almonds are what make this so good, I would not make this without some kind of nut as the base. The toffee alone would not be as good.
- After a minute or two spread the melted chocolate around and then add your pecan crumbs on top and you will be so pleased with what you've made. Put in freezer to cool completely, this will take about 20 or 30 minutes.
This of course will not be as hard as toffee made with sugar but I personally think that’s what makes this toffee even better! Keep stored in the fridge and enjoy when necessary. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

Do you have nutritional info?
I have been working on getting one. The monkfruit I used is 192 carbs per cup. I know seems like a lot. But that’s with making 2-3 dozen depending on how big you break them up. I would say a small piece is about 5-8 carbs. Rounding up just to be save. That’s also counting in the chocolate and nuts. Hope this helps!
Okay – I have to ask, I’ve made this dozens of times now and it turns out like a fudge – how do you know when the monkfruit is ready to caramelize and pour?
It has to be at a boil for at least 5-10 minutes and that’s just a window of time because it should also take time to get to the boil point before you’re timing it or just keeping close eye on it. Honestly, the longer you can boil it without scorching the bottom or making it over flow, thats a good sign and will give the best results. Medium heat but depending on if you have a fire burner and electric will factor in too. Sugar alcohol will not caramelize like regular sugar but it comes very close if done right. Soft boil it longer you’ll see it get thicker. But will not act the same as sugar so this is the part where you seem unsure if it’s ready. If you’re not sure than boil it longer. I boil it until it wants to over flow but doesn’t but you have to get there slowly so you don’t scorch it. Hope this helps because these really are delicious and I always say try it first before throwing out, even if it doesn’t look right 99.9% of the time it’s still delicious!!
Thank you! I still ate the other “fudgy” batches. I just finished a pack of toffee from my last Keto Krate and wanted to make some. I’ll try again.
COULD I MAKE THE TOFFEE SOFTER AND NOT HARD?.
Yes! Absolutely, just use vitafiber syrup! Instead of one full cup of sweetener use 1/2 cup sweetener and a 1/2 cup vitafiber syrup and youll have softer toffee! 🙂
