This Vegan Caramel Sauce looks just the same as any caramel sauce and it is just as delicious. It’s easy to make and goes well with our Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream sandwiches
Vegan Caramel Sauce works just the same as standard dairy based caramel sauce. You just need to replace the dairy based ingredients with plant based ingredients. That means it has the same amount of fat and sugar. Vegan is not a health food its a way to avoid eating animals.
Making Caramel Sauce
Salted Caramel Sauce is a balanced mix of sugar, bitterness, fat and a creamy element. This Vegan sauce is based on a tried and true dairy based salted caramel version HERE.
This type of caramel sauce is lush and rich and the addition of salt is needed to balance and check the sweetness. Sometimes butter and cream based caramel sauces spit and separate, this one stays together extremely well. The layers of sugars and golden syrup seem to bind with the fats making a perfect no split sauce. Give it a shake and it’s ready to go.
You can use Vegan Caramel Sauce with fresh or poached fruit. It would also be perfect on this Vegan Chocolate Cake.
You know by now though that I like it with The Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches I’ve been making. The recipe is Here. It’s even great between these Peanut Butter cookies and popped in the fridge to set.
