  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil*
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream


  1. Place sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. Stir sugar constantly until it melts.
  3. Make sure to stir non-stop, so the sugar has a chance to melt evenly.
  4. When you see the very last beat of sugar melting, quickly remove pan from the heat and immediately pour coconut oil and coconut cream in the pan.
  5. Be very careful doing this step, because the mixture will splatter all over the place, and it will be HOT!
  6. Stay safe and try to use a larger pan, and a long spoon to stir, so you don’t get burned.
  7. Some of the sugar will crystalize once you add the coconut oil and coconut cream in.
  8. Return mixture to the heat, keep stirring and cooking mixture for 1-2 minutes.
  9. Never stop stirring. Stir and cook over medium-low heat until all the sugar has re-melted and mixture is thick and smooth.
  10. If you would like to make salted caramel, add 1/2 teaspoon, or more to taste, at this point.
  11. Remove to a heat-proof bowl.
  12. Let it cool completely before using.


  1. Caramel will store in the fridge for 15-20 days.
  2. Simply re-heat it gently before using.

Recipe Notes

This Caramel Sauce won't taste like coconut, I promise you, especially if you use refined coconut oil.
