This quick and easy date recipe makes for the perfect dip or topping to make a sweet treat 🍓But the fun doesn't stop there😉 This date caramel is a delicious ingredient in several other medjool date recipes we've created!

Made with no refined sugar, this decadently sweet dip gets it's caramel flavor and smooth texture from Joolies medjool dates 😍Plus you get all the nutritional benefits from dates like fiber, potassium, Vitamin B, etc in a delicious vegan and paleo dessert form!
 

Ingredients you'll need:

    1. Joolies Dates
      • The only natural sweetener needed in our brownies! Don't forget to soak in warm water first! Why soak them? Well while they are juicy beforehand, this step allows them to become extra-hydrated to create the perfect texture.
    1. Coconut Cream
      • This thiccc cream helps give the dip a little more structure, in combo with the dates, of course. Plus, coconut is just delicious all by itself and great for other baking adventures!
    2. Vanilla Extract
      • This little addition adds more flavor while enhancing the other flavors in our recipe! Technically, you can go without it, but it's just so much more worth it to go to the store and spend the cash on a good vanilla. It's like baking banana bread without vanilla, it simply isn't the same without it!
