Caramel sauce.... with coconut milk?

  • s

When making a caramel sauce with the usual cream, it suddenly occured to me that adding coconut milk might be an interesting idea. Anyone ever done this?

  1. I love this idea, as I try to eat vegan. Let us know how it turns out. :)

      I myself haven't done the deed, but the best caramel candy I ever had was made with coconut -they were smooth so I assume it was coconut milk. I'd say please, go ahead, the result probably will be delicious.

    2. No, but a homemade caramel (from Sage On The Coast) was dropped into coffee and then dipped into toasted coconut. That was good.

      The subtlety of the coconut milk would be great. I would assume it all turned out okay because coconut milk doesn't curdle any more than cream would.

      I'm not a Thai food expert, but maybe a French Thai chef would have no doubts.

      Great idea.
