Enjoy silky, perfectly sweetened, easy caramel sauce that you can add to everything! From caramel cups to homemade Twix bars to topping low-carb apple cake. You can even add it to coffee or smoothies if you’re feeling really adventurous! Let your imagination take you to places you’ve never gone before (clearly I need to get out more).
how to make caramel sauce without cream
This homemade caramel sauce is so easy to make. You basically, put it on the stove and let it simmer for 15 minutes. Doesn’t get much easier than that!
Brown the butter first (unless you’re using ghee– then you can just add that to a saucepan and melt). To brown the butter, add it to a small pan on medium heat. Stir occasionally. After 4 – 5 minutes, brown bits will form along the bottom and it should start to smell caramel-like. When that happens, you’re all set!
Next, add the coconut cream, xylitol or sweetener of choice (see notes) and bootstrap molasses. Stir once and then let it simmer on low-medium for 15 minutes. It will reduce down slightly and have a caramel consistency. Take off the heat and add the vanilla and salt.
If the caramel looks broken, you can easily fix it by adding a tablespoon of warm water and whisking it until it’s smooth again.
how to store caramel sauce
This caramel stores well in the fridge, especially if you use xylitol or allulose as your sweetener. If you use erythritol like Swerve or Lakanto, it may crystalize over time. Store it in a sealed container. When you’re ready to use it, microwave it in 30-second intervals until it’s warm and thinned out a bit. Then it’s ready to pour!
