Raw Caramel Sauce

Save to My Recipes

This rich and creamy sauce is perfect for a fondue party. Serve alongside chocolate fondue for a healthier dipping sauce for apples, bananas, graham crackers, marshmallows, brownie bites, and even assorted cheeses. This sauce is perfect for dipping, but if a thinner sauce is required—for pouring over a cake or ice cream, for example—add more date water until desired consistency is reached.
