vegan caramel bubbling and simmering

Vegan Caramel

When I think of fall, I think of apple everything. And what’s a better pair with apples than caramel.

But then I look at the caramel sauces.

And every single one of them has milk in them.

It makes sense because caramel only is butter, cream, and sugar.

But still….Why isn’t vegan caramel a more widely available thing? And then I realized how easy it was to make my own, and I am never buying store bought caramel ever again.

vegan caramel ingredients: coconut cream and brown sugar

And this recipe offer a little more coconutty yumminess with the coconut cream.

It would go great on top of ice cream, in hot chocolate or coffee, or just a delicious dip for your fresh local apples.
