Dairy-free Caramel

These indulgent caramels are diabolically good, especially with some chunky French Grey Sea Salt on top. The sweet and salty combination is to-die-for. These are easy enough to make ahead of time and serve as a fancy dessert as a holiday party.

  1. Add all ingredients (except sea salt) to a medium sauce pot over medium high heat. Whisk together.
  2. Use a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature. The mixture will bubble and boil while cooking. Continue to heat and whisk until the mixture reaches "soft ball" stage (235-240 F).
  3. Remove from heat and spoon the mixture into parchment paper muffin cups (which are non-stick) and sprinkle with sea salt. Allow to cool before enjoying.

    This not dairy free. Ghee still contains dairy proteins that can cause an allergic reaction in someone who has a dairy allergy.

      There’s a reason we call out a specific brand for this recipe: it is lab tested for total elimination of casein and lactose.

    While this ghee might be casein & lactose free it IS still dairy. This ghee still contains whey which does contain protein that many with dairy allergies may still be allergic to & vegans would still not want to consume.

    It’s made me assume that all of the recipes on here are labeled just as poorly & would not be a site that won’t actually put me in a hospital were I to eat something from here if a friend or family member came across this site trying to make me something.

    The specific brand of ghee we call out in this recipe is lab tested to be 100% casein and lactose free.
    We are not claiming this recipe to be Vegan, just to be clear on that point.
    Sorry to hear you have such a severe dairy allergy, that must be quite difficult for you. I’m sorry this recipe doesn’t work for you.
