These chewy Vegan Pecan Caramel Chews are reminiscent of those little caramels you used to get from trick or treating when you were little, except they're packed with pecans and dipped in chocolate! Be sure to use a candy thermometer with this vegan caramel recipe for best results. If you like your caramel extra soft or extra hard, adjust the caramelization temperature 10F (6 C) lower or 10F (6 C) higher respectively.
These Balsamic Candied Pecans are great for salads, ice cream or just random munching. It's one of those examples of how balsamic vinegar can mysteriously elevate certain foods to food crack
status. This vegan recipe also features a touch of molasses and salt that work behind-the-scenes to enable proper texture and complex flavors. Don't like molasses? Too bad! Or should I say, "please add it. Pretty please?" It's essential for allowing the proper texture and flavors come through. You shouldn't be able to taste it in the finished product. Oh and here's a little secret: Put these babies in your next pecan pie for a secret candy coated weapon that's sure to wow your pie eating brethren.
This Vegan Bourbon Baked Apple recipe is a great way to get that ridiculously good apple flavor without resorting to the time intensive sport of pie making.

The whole deal is then doused with bourbon and baked to perfection. I won't tell if you drink some of the bourbon to make sure it's okay

or Dulce de Leche.
