OH wow! Bobtail thank you soooo much. I love caramel and I'm glad I found your recipe. I was playing around in the kitchen and decided to use this caramel sauce in a cookie recipe I was experimenting with (made up myself) and I used the leftover sauce for a sliced Granny Smith apple. Very sweet, rich, nice caramel taste. I used Silk brand non-dairy coffee creamer and Smart Balance with Flaxseed Oil. I also halved the recipe. Not sure how this would keep in the fridge, but a half recipe made just over 1/2 cup of sauce. Thanks again, a definite keeper! :)

Outstanding! I also used vanilla creamer but I added a pinch of salt to cut the sweetness down a bit. It turned out very rich and had such a lovely, silky texture. The leftovers separated and hardened to a chewy consistency in the fridge but a quick zap in the microwave and it was perfect. I used it in place of the toffee sauce for a sticky toffee pudding and it was a hit!

Easy to make and delicious! I used french vanilla coffee creamer and the taste was amazing. I used this to top Apple Streusel Cheesecake Apple Streusel Cheesecake and it was a perfect addition. Thanks for posting this!

Just a fyi. Most "non dairy" creamers have casein in them which is a form of dairy. People who are allergic to dairy can not have casein. Any other ideas of what can be used in place of the non dairy creamer?

My daughter is dairy free and wanted some caramel to dip her apples in - this recipe worked perfectly!

"Non dairy" creamer is not actually dairy free. It contains casein which is milk protein. This recipe could be dangerous for people with serious milk allergies.

Wonderful! Dairy-allergy commenters, please read: Yes, casein used to be a problem in many products, but no longer. Check those ingredient lists of all the products you thought you couldn't have, and you'll find nearly all of them have now figured out how to get rid of casein. So, enjoy! From Silk: "...all Silk products are dairy-free, lactose-free and casein-free."

Non-dairy creamer is not dairy free and I cannot have it. Maybe this works for the lactose intolerant, but it is not a good recipe for those who have an actual dairy allergy; for example, I am allergic to the milk protein casein.
