Not Martha

thing I like: Hot Cakes vegan caramel sauce

I accidentally bought this jar of caramel sauce. I mean, I did set out to buy caramel sauce but I accidentally bought the vegan version. (I’m sure I don’t need to tell you but just in case I’ll point out that I am not a vegan.)

It turns out that it was a wonderful mistake because this is made with coconut milk and when poured over vanilla or chocolate ice cream the combination of flavors closely approximates the anticipation/love/scarcity I feel when eating a Girl Scout Samoa cookie. I will need to file this away for the “Girl-Scout-Cookie-!” mental alert that my brain gives me about three months too early each year.

    I will have to try this. Caramel sauce is easy enough to make that I don’t tend to buy it, but I can certainly try making my next batch with coconut oil and coconut milk to reach that delicious nirvana.

    That looks amazing! Where did you find it? I stumbled into amazing candy caramels called “Cocomels” at a party the other day–also vegan and soooooo good! They must have been made with coconut too. Thanks for sharing!

    Emily – This was at my small local grocery store and the sauce is produced here in Seattle by a place called Hot Cakes, you can order it online if you’re curious about it. I’ll keep an eye out for Cocomels, thanks for letting us know about them!

    Yes, I’ve had this in their store on vanilla ice cream, it’s wonderful!

    You can order both Hot Cakes sauce and Cocomels online from Food Fight:

    Or if you are in Portland, you can buy them in the store, along with all sorts of other interesting stuff (coconut “bacon”!). :)
