Easy Salted Caramel Sauce (Dairy-Free)


One of my favorite flavors for fall is salted caramel. I love to drizzle it over pancakes, pumpkin cake, brownies; the possibilities are truly endless. This homemade caramel sauce couldn't be easier. You don't need a candy thermometer, and you don't have to pour cream into boiling sugar to create a sizzling, splattering hot mess. You simply mix everything then heat it up. Just like most of my treats, I made this dairy-free for my daughters, though you can easily swap in heavy cream if you wish. Note: It doesn't harden enough for candy making or caramel apples. This is strictly a recipe for liquid caramel sauce.

Ingredients
  • 1 packed cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy milk or coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Combine and whisk 6-8 min over med low heat. Do the plate test (pictured above) to make sure it's ready. Before you begin making the sauce, place a plate in the fridge. To test the caramel sauce, spoon some onto the cold plate and run your finger through it. If the caramel stays separated, then it's done! No thermometer needed. Refrigerate to thicken. It may become a little crystallized upon thickening; simply stir before using. Put it through the canning process to store it at room temp or to give away for some handmade holiday gifts.

*Add in some pumpkin pie spice for pumpkin salted caramel sauce, or even better - bourbon! Serve it over your favorite fall dessert or a big bowl of ice cream.
