This easy plant-based caramel recipe uses simple ingredients and a traditional method for a caramel sauce that's perfect for caramel apples and as a topping for your favourite desserts.
Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a low boil over medium heat.
Continue cooking, stirring frequently for 13-15 minutes, until a candy thermometer reads 245 degrees, or when a small amount of caramel placed on a cold ceramic dish turns to the desired consistency within thirty seconds.
Remove from heat and let stand for about 5-10 minutes. Use immediately or refrigerate and reheat as needed when ready to use.
