As a basic recipe you can use it for a dip, sauce or whatever you want to call it. But it doesn’t matter cause you will get addicted to it. I swear!

This vegan caramel dip works perfectly on a cake or as a dip for vegan snicker balls or fresh fruits. The caramel gets thicker by the time, so use it still warm if you want to decorate a cake with it. The creme of the coconut can is essential for the consistency of your caramel dip. There is a firmer creme at the top of the can that works perfectly for a thick caramel creme.
