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.
