I think it's doable. I would make the black soybean cake, but you could use any good chocolate cake recipe-The Chicken Lady's almond flour chocolate cake or the chocolate mayonnaise cake. Then make a recipe for sweetened condensed milk. There are lots of them. I usually use the one from All Day I Dream About Food. For caramel sauce, I would use my own tagatose caramel sauce or you could buy some sugar free caramel ice cream sauce. For chocolate chips, I would use Lily's. There are lots of good recipes for Chocolate sauce. I would use make a ganache with sugar free chocolates and cream, but you could use any recipe you like or buy a sugar free chocolate sauce. I'm pretty sure there are Snicker's-like candy bars that are sugar free, although I haven't been eating them. The dessert would be pretty high carb though, even with the changes. And with the maltitol-sweetened candy bars, it might be a dessert many of your guests could not handle.

there is no amount of low carbing something this over the top that will make it a good "diet" food. why not just make a simple low carb sugar free chocolate cake and have it with a little whipped cream?

the recommended portion size on that snickers cake would be about a square inch with all that stuff in it! LOL

Even s/f caramel sauce is still high in carbs. It can be done.But there are so many good LC baking recipes.

Try the Tres Leches cake, which is very similar and very easy. If you want chocolate cake as a base instead of the white cake in this recipe, just add 1/4 cup plain cocoa to the cake part:

Pastel de Tres Leches/3 milks cake recipe I love
