  • Combine the canned coconut milk and honey (or whatever sweetener you're using) into a small sauce pan.
  • Whisk the milk and honey mixture over medium heat until the honey has dissolved.
  • Bring to a boil and boil for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to medium low, or until the mixture is at a gentle simmer. Simmer for 45-55 minutes until the dairy free caramel has reduced by half, and darkened in color.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and sea salt.
  • The caramel will continue to set up and thicken as it cools. So I highly recommend storing it in an airtight container in the fridge overnight before using.
