Drizzle this vegan pumpkin spice caramel on everything from brownies and ice cream to apples and more! Let this caramel inspire delicious fall treats.


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter divided into tablespoons
  • 2 tbsp non-dairy creamer
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • dash of salt or more for a salted caramel flavor


  • Measure out all ingredients prior to turning heat on so that the sugar never has to be left unattended.
  • Pour sugar in pot with high sides and turn to medium low. I kept my burner at a 3 out of 9.
  • Stir often until the sugar turns to an amber liquid. The sugar will first begin to melt, then clump, and then finally achieve the light amber liquid.
  • Once this happens, quickly add your butter and stir until melted. Your mixture should bubble at his point.
  • After the butter has melted, add the non-dairy creamer 1 tbsp at a time and stir until incorporated.
  • Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients. Whisk until incorporated.
  • Carefully pour the liquid into a jar and allow to come down to room temperature
