Vegan and Sugar-Free Caramel Apple Dip

November 1, 2013

We had a party last weekend with 30 lovely guests, many gored pumpkins and a bunch of rambunctious kids.  And what went fastest?  Apple slices.  I know, who would have thought?  Granted, they were my favorites, fresh from the farmer’s market, and some was due to parental nudging in that direction, but a bunch was voluntary, too.

But it was the dip that really sealed the deal.  Rich caramel flavor…and completely vegan and sugar-free.  You know you want some…

2/3 cup reduced fat coconut milk

1 1/3 cup coconut sugar

Pinch salt

½ tsp stevia concentrate (optional, but more caramel-like)

1 generous tablespoon macadamia butter

Boil and reduce coconut milk and sugar for approx 15 min over medium-low heat.  Add in other ingredients and aggressively whisk.  It will thicken as it cools for perfect dipping consistency.
