Coconut Caramel

Coconut Caramel

This summer, I made a coconut caramel. It’s bad because I’ve been putting it on top of almost everything. It’s so good. And so easy to make. I used to be intimidated by making caramel (boiling sugar is scary…) but now that I’ve gotten over it, this can be bad news for my waistline. So obviously I had to share the love so everyone can make this.
