Easy Coconut Caramel Sauce

This weekend was sunny and warm in Portland. Ironically enough, I’m working from South Carolina for the week – where it’s storming and humid. What are the odds?! Regardless of the weather, I’ve had a little bit of time to explore and check out the scenes. I’ve never been to the South before, so everything is new to me: the accents, the architecture, the food. And so far, it’s not disappointing. Southern hospitality is no joke. Everyone here is so friendly! It actually reminds me a little bit of home.

And speaking of home, homemade caramel is one of my favorite sweet treats (remember these bacon caramels? AHmazing.) So when I heard that it’s possible to make caramel with dairy substitutes, I had a *mind blown* kind of moment. Naturally I kicked the experiment off with coconut milk – because, I simply can’t get enough of it. And guess what? 20 minutes later, I had homemade coconut milk caramel sauce.
