If you have kids or love snacking, you always need this healthy caramel dip in your fridge. What is great about this recipe is how effortless it is to make this. Great for dipping apples or topping vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients Overview

Medjool dates: Your dates should be soft, not hard. If they are dry or hard, you can soak them in water for about 30 minutes, drain them, and then use them in the recipe.

Milk of your choice: Soy, oats, or almond milk, ideally unsweetened.

Vanilla extract: A flavor enhancer.

Salt: Just a touch to bring the flavors together.

Let’s have a date:

Healthy Almond Joy Candy Bars

Tahini Date Turtles

No-Bake Energy Balls
