  • Add the coconut milk and coconut sugar to a pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, watching carefully to prevent it from boiling over, then immediately reduce heat to a low simmer. 
  • Allow to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce turns a deep amber color and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in the coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  • Pour sauce into a sturdy jar with lid and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Caramel color will lighten as it cools. Enjoy!
