I've been confined to my house for the past couple weeks due to the Bay Area's "shelter-in-place" order, so I've been experimenting with different recipes.
I always liked caramel flavored deserts, so I decided to see if I could get the same effect with allulose.
The experiment was successful The allulose browned & caramelized just like sugar. By adding butter and salt, I got a pretty good approximation of salted caramel. I tried it mixed in with toasted walnuts and pecans. The sweet/savory and soft/crunch contrast was fantastic. I personally preferred the walnuts, but you could put it over whatever you'd like.
I also tried just pouring the caramel into molds and topping with flaky sea salt. Quite good, but I prefer it over the nuts.

I've included the recipe below if you want to try them yourself.
Hope you enjoy it!
