Easy Caramel Sauce is a thick, creamy sauce without using cream or milk. This is the best caramel sauce that can be used as a topping or a dip.
In a small stovetop pan, bring coconut sugar and water to a boil.
Once boiling, add in coconut milk, whisk and bring to a boil again.
Once boiling, reduce heat to a low boil and continue for 25 minutes, whisking occasionally.
While caramel sauce is cooking, prepare thickener by mixing cornstarch with 1 tbsp of water in a small bowl, to form a paste.
After caramel sauce has cooked for 25 minutes, add in paste and whisk continuously for 3-4 minutes, until desired consistency.
Once you reach desired consistency, remove pan from heat and whisk in vanilla extract.
Cool and then transfer to an airtight container and store in fridge.
