If you're sensitive to dairy products, give this a try and make up a batch of caramel apples to enjoy along with everyone else! "Regular" caramels are loaded with milk and cream, making them a dairy-packed food.
1-1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
12 ounces coconut milk
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix the sugar, cornstarch and 1/4 cup of the coconut milk in a pan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
Add the rest of the milk and the corn syrup. Cook until it starts to bubble. Let it bubble for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat, stir in the vanilla.
Let it cool. You can store it in the fridge for a couple of days.
Dark corn syrup is corn syrup with a small amount of refiners' syrup (a type of molasses derived from sugar cane), caramel flavor, sodium benzoate (a preservative), salt, and caramel color. Dark corn syrup has a medium brown color and a much more assertive flavor. It works quite well in this recipe for a nice, caramel flavor along with the brown sugar.
