This is a 21 and older dessert! Because the mezcal is added once the sauce is cool, none of the alcohol is cooked out. Mezcal is a smoky Mexican liquor made from the agave plant, giving it a highly complex and distinctive flavor profile.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 8 Servings
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt

  2. Stir in the coconut cream and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring periodically. It should become slightly thickened.

  4. Whisk in the mezcal until combined and smooth.
  5. Store any leftover vegan caramel sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
