Vegan Caramel Sauce

This caramel sauce is very tasty on so many dessert delights!  I’ve used it on the  pumpkin bars, as well as the one bowl apple cake.  It also sweetens Greek yogurt that doesn’t have added sugars.  


3/4 cup full fat coconut milk fat*

3/4 cup coconut sugar or date sugar

2 tablespoons honey or 100% maple syrup

1/4 cup palm shortening or earth balance butter
