Easy Microwave Coconut Caramel





I am always looking to improve on what I already know- caramel being one of the things I always have room for improvement on. :-) This is sooo easy, I thought for sure that there was no way it would work- WoW Not only does it work, it is AMAZING!
The Picture above is room temperature- perfect for dipping, pouring over ice cream... yogurt.. YUM! Of course in the fridge it firms up a lot.



Another quick microwave caramel
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup Lyles golden cane syrup(if you don't have a corn allergy, corn syrup works)
5-6 drops of lemon juice
dash of salt(I used 3 dashes! LOL, pink himalayn- we like it salted.)
3 Tablespoons coconut cream(off the top of cold coconut milk or 3 tablespoons heavy cream)

Combine the sugar and Lyle's and lemon juice in a microwave safe 2 cup glass measuring cup- mix it well to try to get all the sugar moist.
Cook in microwave for 3 minutes(depending on micro this could vary, mine is OLD and 3 did great) no need to cover etc(very important-you need a 2 or bigger glass measuring cup, and the sugar melts it bubbles and the measure has to be big enough and capable of handling the heat)
Mix the coconut cream and a dash or two of salt into the caramel- mix well will get firmer as it cools.
Caution- HOT SUGAR! You could skip the coconut cream if you wanted something firmer or to use in dessert recipes I guess.. we wanted a dipping sauce :-)
