Vegan Salted Caramel Recipe

A jar of homemade salted caramel sauce makes a gorgeous edible gift and delicious treat for friends and family. The sauce keeps for up to 1 month so can be made ahead, then is ready to be drizzled on ice cream and desserts, mixed into cakes, or just eaten with a spoon! As an added bonus, this recipe is vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free, so everyone can enjoy it.

Serves 20 (makes 400ml) - 20 mins plus cooling - 67 calories / serving

300g light brown muscovado sugar
400ml tin full-fat coconut milk
40g dairy-free spread
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp sea salt

Put the sugar and coconut milk in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until fully combined. Bring to the boil, then simmer vigorously for 15 mins, stirring occasionally, until thickened and slightly reduced.

Remove from the heat and whisk in the spread, vanilla and salt. Pour into sterilised jars and leave to cool; the sauce will continue to thicken slightly as it cools. It will keep for up to 1 month stored at room temperature; once opened, use within a week.

Tip: To sterilise glass jars, wash in hot, soapy water and rinse well. Dry in the oven for 15-20 mins at gas 1, 140°C, fan 120°C until hot and completely dry. Boil metal lids for 10 mins, then leave to dry.
