Homemade Caramel Sauce

Ingredients

1/4 cup Water
8 tablespoons Earth Balance Butter
2 teaspoons Gluten Free Vanilla
2 pinchs Salt

Preparation

1
Place sugar in a small, heavy sauce pan. Pour 1/4 C water evenly over top and turn stove on to medium heat.
2
Hold pan by handle and swirl occasionally until sugar has dissolved. Do not allow to burn.
3
Once sugar is dissolved, cover and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Boil 2 minutes.
4
Remove lid and continue to boil until the edges of the pan turn a deep amber color and the syrup thickens and begins to smoke, swirling occasionally. Approximately 3-5 minutes.
5
Remove from heat and gently whisk in butter and coconut milk.
6
Stir in vanilla and salt. If sauce becomes lumpy, set over low heat and stir until smooth.
8
Granulated white sugar can also be used if preferred. Palm sugar will result in a darker caramel sauce and give it a slightly less sweet/brown sugar type taste.
