This is probably the best vegan caramel sauce recipe you’ll get your hands on.
It is literally liquid gold. It doesn’t turn rock solid after 2 seconds of making it and it is just so smooth. Pour it on ice cream, put it on top of a cream tart and swirl it around. This vegan caramel is like the cherry on top of any dessert.
No need to worry about sugar crystallizing on the sides of your pan or letting your sugar golden on its own before progressing. You just need to put all the ingredients in a pan and 5 minutes of your time.

How to make vegan caramel sauce
This 5-minute dairy-free caramel sauce is SO easy to make.
Simply mix all the ingredients in a medium saucepan on a medium heat, stirring until bubbling and thickened!
Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before serving.
You can keep the sauce refrigerated for up to a week.
It will “set” when it’s cooled so you will probably need to reheat it gently, for it to regain a pourable consistency.

This caramel is so easy and delicious! And allergy-friendly! Thanks Leena 🙂
This is the most simple caramel sauce recipe! Amazing! My old caramel recipe took much more time and lots of worrying about the sugar crystallizing. What a great allergy- friendly recipe to add to our mix!
Thank you, yes this is really one to save!

I have only made one classic salty caramel sauce once following e recipe with thousands of comments and stars - it was horribly salty:)) I am curious to try a vegan version and see the difference in texture or taste. Thanks for the recipe!
