the easiest caramel sauce around

For some reason, caramel sauce sounds daunting. It sounds like something you would need to be a professional to make. Well, that’s absolutely not the case. This caramel sauce couldn’t be easier. You literally stir 4 ingredients together, and that’s it.

why i love this caramel sauce

This caramel sauce is not only crazy easy to make, but it’s vegan. It uses coconut cream instead of butter, which adds a really great creaminess to the whole thing. Don’t worry though, the coconut flavor isn’t strong so you won’t feel like you are eating a coconut cream pie.

ingredients you’ll need

  • Coconut cream
  • Brown Sugar
  • Cornstarch
  • Vanilla Extract

how to make Vegan caramel sauce

  1. Add all ingredients to a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. Bring to a boil. The sauce will start to bubble and foam (that’s good.)
  3. Once it’s boiling, turn down to a simmer. Let simmer and Stir occasionally

coconut cream vs. coconut milk

This recipe uses coconut cream. Coconut milk and cream are both results of simmering the coconut meat in the water. To make coconut milk you simmer one part coconut with one part water. Coconut cream, however, simmers FOUR parts coconut with one part water. As you can imagine, this makes coconut cream WAY thicker and richer.

If you only have coconut milk, check out this method of turning that into coconut cream!
