  • 1/4 cup unsweeteed almond milk (can also use regular milk or other dairy alternates)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (I use spectrum naturals brand as it doesn't have the strong coconut flavor other coconut oils have.)
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • Sliced apples


1. Mix almond milk, melted coconut oil and sea salt; set aside.
2. Heat sugar and water over medium heat, stirring until dissolved. Bring to a boil.
3. Boil without stirring until sugar mix turns a light amber color. Be careful on this step--if you don't watch the mixture closely it goes from the perfect color to burned in a flash! (trust me, I burned the dickens out of my first batch!)
4. As soon as the mixture turns a medium amber color, remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
5. Slowly whisk in the milk mixture; be careful as the sugar mixture is very hot and will sputter and froth when you add the milk mixture. Whisk well and pour into a serving bowl.
6. Cool in refrigerator, stirring occasionally.
7. Serve with apples. **Can also be used as an ice cream topping
