It’s unlike any other caramels I’ve tried (because of the dates), but that’s what makes this recipe sweeter, creamier, and thicker!

Vegan Date Caramel

The secret to a great caramel lies in the type of dates you’re using. Soft and sticky dates make it really creamy. If your dates are not as soft, simply soak them in hot water for 10-15 minutes. That will fix the problem.
