Vegan Chocolate Date Caramels (GF)

I am in love with these Vegan Chocolate Date Caramels.

They’re crunchy on the outside and beautifully soft and slightly chewy on the inside, whilst the caramel-like sweetness of the dates and the slightly bitter dark chocolate is perfectly complimented by the oh-so-sophisticated touch of flaky sea salt.

These little treats are so much healthier than store-bought chocolate caramels, but just as delicious!

I find that soft, plump Medjool dates work best for this recipe, but you can use other varieties if you want. 

These little chocolate caramels are super simple and easy to make, and make great homemade gifts…or you could just eat the whole lot yourself.

They also taste great if you add half a teaspoon of nut butter inside the dates before coating them in the chocolate. Peanut butter or almond butter work particularly well!
