After my excitement at making the coffee ice cream with coconut milk I decided to have a go at making a caramel sauce using it. I’m always after dairy free caramel sauce for topping cupcakes, cheesecakes, brownies, you name it. If you don’t use it all you can store it in the fridge and gently heat before using.
