Pair with your favorite CorEats’ treat
Have you ever experienced a catchy tune from a children’s movie that has been played on repeat, becoming permanently lodged in your mind? You know, the broken record replay! Take the movie, The Lorax… You already have it playing in your head, don’t you???
"...Everybody needs a thneed
A fine thing that all people need."
Well if it wasn’t in your head yet- now that it IS- let me explain where exactly I'm going with this. You see, what everybody really 'thneeds' is an ooey, gooey, easily decadent, dream team recipe! A fine thing that all people need to cover CorEats confections with. Heck, this is even a frolicking with fresh fruit kind of sauce!
This would be the point where I'd say move over chocolate, so on and so forth… but WHY would I do that!? After all, chocolate and caramel are yet another dreamy dream team! CorEats has you covered- Caramel covered that is!
1 cup coconut cream, pure white part
1 1/3 cup maple or coconut sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/2 tsp sea salt *optional
Candy thermometer recommended, but optional
1. In a small heavy saucepan, mix coconut cream and maple or coconut sugar; stir gently to combine and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stop stirring at this point to ensure sugar crystals do not form on the sides of the pan.
2. Reduce heat to low and simmer until a candy thermometer reaches 235-240℉, roughly 15-20 minutes.
3. When glaze reaches the right temperature, remove from heat. Add sea salt and vanilla and stir. Allow the caramel mixture to cool for 15-20 minutes. It will be slightly thin, but will thicken as it cools.
4. Drizzle over brownies, cakes, cupcakes, muffins, or any of your favorite CorEats treats! Watch here for our Coconut Spice Cake, using this fabulous caramel!
Note: glaze will last in the fridge for up to 5 days. Heat it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to bring it back to a drizzle consistency.
