I love desserts in little jars and always have. Not only do I enjoy having a little pot of something delicious all to myself but, even better, it's the perfect way to give a sweet gift. And these days I'm all about thinking up sweet little gifts.
These little pots of salted caramel creaminess are pure comfort. While they may seem intimidating to make, just a few simple steps result in perfect baked caramel. And I can even go one better with these because I've customized them to be sugar free. Yup, the same batch made with sugar can be made with zero calorie sweetener, Sweet'N Low®, and it works perfectly. Lots of my friends either shouldn't or don't want to eat sugar these days but thanks to Sweet'N Low®, they can still enjoy this treat.
In fact, Sweet'N Low® can be used to reduce sugar and calories in any of your favorite baking recipes. One packet is as sweet as two teaspoons of sugar and eight teaspoons of Sweet'N Low® are equivalent to one cup of sugar. Baking tip: although this recipe uses only Sweet'N Low®, when baking with it, it's recommended to keep half the sugar in the recipe to ensure proper volume, texture and browning.
Sweet'N Low®, along with some of my fellow bloggers and I, created desserts based off
the "12 Days of Christmas." My little pots of milky caramel are inspired by the Eight Maids a Milking verse. Check out the links below to see what the themed treats are for the other 11 days of Christmas. Enjoy!
