chocolate caramel desserts/candies

I love caramel, but dairy is not my friend. Finding "sweets" with caramel is such a treat. I am not going to calculate the nutritional information. Although these treats are better for you (higher fiber, higher protein, lower carbohydrates...), they are still desserts and should be eaten in moderation.

Paleo Caramel Brownies
Next time i make these, i will double the brownie recipe because there was too much caramel and chocolate ganache. However, they did taste amazing!!! They freeze well.

Goo Goo Clusters
For the Goo Goo Clusters i needed to double the chocolate to completely cover the cluster, layered with coconut nougat, caramel, and a walnut half. I also combined the recipes of the caramel of the Goo Goo Clusters and the Raw Snicker Bars, to save time with blending and clean-up. The caramel was delicious.

"Raw Snickers Bars"

For these "Raw Snickers Bars" i simplified the making of the nougat pressing the nougat on parchment paper in a square pan and cut the nougat into bars to freeze.
These were too sweet for me. Next time i plan to reduce maple syrup by half for the chocolate.

Almond Clusters

The Almond Clusters were an unexpected treat! They are from the leftover chocolate from the "Raw Snickers Bars" with almond in mini cupcake cups.
