    Michelle, this looks so delicious! I have been missing caramel since giving up refined sugar! I bet this would make a wonderful dip for apples! Thank you!

  2. Wow, this is awesome! I’ve been wanting to make some caramel, but this looks waaaaay more like something I would make. I loooove that it’s only 3 three ingredients. Plus, I love that it’s coconuty :D

    What would you recommend for “shelf life” of this creamy delight? A week in the fridge?

  4. This sauce looks and sounds wonderful! Must make something sauce worthy! ;-)

    Do you refrigerate the left overs? If so, how would you reheat? What is the shelf life?

    Oh man. I can’t tell you how excited I was to find this on Pinterest. I’m allergic to sugar cane, but always loved my caramel in the days before we tracked down what it was I’m allergic to. This looks fantastic.

    Hi! I am excited to try this sauce with your apple cake recipe! However, the sauce seems more runny than what yours looks like in the picture. Is the amount of coconut milk correct? Should I continue to cook it after I add coconut milk? Thanks!

  12. Sarah says:

    Could I use maple syrup in place of honey? I’m allergic to honey…
    If so, would there be any adjustments?

  13. Claire says:

    I don’t know what I did wrong, but mine seems very liquidy and the coconut oil does not seem to “blend”, it’s just sitting on the top. I’m going to put it in the fridge and see if it thickens and combines.

  14. Toby says:

    Does this use the canned full fat kind of coconut milk or the refrigerated drinking kind of coconut milk (like with the almond milk)?
