Got this from a Yahoo! Group I am on.... haven't made them yet, but will soon: "Awesome homemade dairy-free caramel recipe! Good with nuts, topped with chocolate, or for dipping apples in. Cook it to a lower temperature for caramel ice cream topping. Thanks to "The Glad Cow Cookbook' for the original ingredient proportions. Makes --100 pieces of caramel"

Very nice, thanks for the making them for my Vegan friend. Non-vegans wouldn't taste the diff between these and milk caramels.

I made this using Earth Balance and coconut milk, and it turned out great. I plan on using this in place of the typical store-bought wrapped caramels in some holiday baking. :)
