Vegan Coconut Caramel

"I use this caramel for making diary-free Twix® 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."

- Cook's Notes:
- For homemade Twix® 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.
