Start with 1/4 c vegan margarine. I am allergic to soy, so the brand I use is soy-free.
Add 1/2 c coconut milk creamer. I used French Vanilla, but plain would work just as well.
Next whisk in 1/2 c each of your preferred brand of brown and white sugar, plus 1/2 c of brown rice syrup.
Microwave on high for two minutes. Repeat this step, depending on wattage, 3 or 4 times for a total of 6-8 minutes (mine was closer to 8 for chewy caramels, 9 for hard candies).
Pour caramel (careful, it's hot!) into silicone molds or a parchment-lined dish. Let cool for 30 min to an hour. You can speed the process in the freezer if you're impatient. 😉
Pop out of the molds (or cut them into bite-size pieces if you used a dish). Enjoy!
Warning: my 20 year old ate an entire batch. By himself. If you have one of these eating machines at home I suggest doubling the recipe or finding a good hiding place!
