I use this caramel for making diary-free Twixu0026reg; bars! It has a delicious caramel flavor, and is just as yummy as all those non-vegan alternatives out there. In fact, I'm not vegan, and I prefer it! You could make it a little harder to make caramel candies, or a little runnier for dipping caramel apples.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine coconut milk, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons margarine, and vanilla extract in a saucepan. Heat on low, watching carefully and stirring occasionally, until mixture registers 236 degrees F (113 degrees C) on an instant-read or candy thermometer. Remove from heat. Mix in any grease that separated from the mixture, or carefully pour it off.n


Cook's Notes:

For homemade Twix(R) bars, drizzle caramel over the cookie of your choice, then coat with melted chocolate. For caramel apples, carefully caramel spoon over apples. For caramel candies, oil a 9-inch baking dish and dust with powdered sugar. A tiny muffin tin would also work. Pour in caramel and let cool. Sprinkle with chocolate chips or toffee pieces for an extra treat!

If you want a harder caramel, continue to heat until soft ball stage is reached (240 degrees F (115 degrees C)). For a dippable caramel, add a splash of soy milk after cooking.
