1 cup natural sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp. agave
1/4 cup Earth Balance vegan butter
3/4 cup coconut milk (full fat, not lite)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp. arrowroot powder (which can be found at any health food store)
Heat up the sugar, water and agave and bring to a boil until all the sugar crystals have broken down. Add in the coconut milk, butter, vanilla and arrowroot powder. You can use a whisk to get it nice and creamy and break down the arrowroot powder. Lower heat and immediately dip apples (on a stick) and let cool on wax paper. If doing apple dips with cut apple slices, let sauce cool a bit and then serve with apples.
Sauce can also be used to top ice cream (coconut based ice cream, of course!), cakes or other fruit such as bananas. Yum! Sauce can be stored in a jar with a tightly sealed lid for up to 2 weeks. Just reheat in a saucepan on medium heat.

Have a safe and happy Halloween and remember parents, it’s OKAY to toss out collected candy from trick-or-treating. It’s NOT food. Let the guilt go. 🙂 Your children’s health is way more important.
