Homemade Caramel Sauce

Who said that sugar free had to mean not having the delicious sweet treats every now and again.

This caramel sauce is SO rich and decadent , no one would guess that it is refined sugar free.

Furthermore, it’s so quick and easy to whip up and only requires a few ingredients.

It tastes A-MAZ-ING drizzled over this sugar free vanilla ice cream and as a filling in this gooey caramel sauce , or  drizzled over a homemade Caramel Macchiato and my beautiful Mum makes a delicious ginger cake with caramel drizzle that this would be perfect for.

The fact is, this sauce tastes fabulous with ANYTHING, my kids love licking spoonful’s of it as I am making it.

This recipe only makes a small quantity but feel free to double, triple or even quadruple it to suit your quantity requirements.

Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.  You will need to warm the bottle or jar that the caramel is stored in slightly to make it a nice pourable consistency.  (I do this by standing it in a jug of hot water for a few minutes)

If you would like a dairy free option, replace the cream with coconut cream.
