A perfect sweet treat for fall, this caramel dip is great for after-school snacks served with apples or pears.


  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (or soymilk)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon margarine (dairy free)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Steps to Make It

Fill a pan large enough to hold a small saucepan with ice water. Set aside.

In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the non-dairy milk alternative, sugar, maple syrup, soy margarine, vanilla and salt to a boil. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until medium amber in color. Place the saucepan in the prepared ice-water bath to stop the cooking.

Transfer the caramel sauce to a heatproof container and place in the refrigerator until cool. Serve cold with apples, pears or dairy-free crackers.
