Greetings from Dallas!
Do any of my bunnies have suggestions for some restaurants or shops I should visit?
I always love visiting Texas because everyone here is so sweet.
Speaking of sweet, I have a sweet treat for y’all today!

Fall is the time for candy apples, bathed in gooey caramel! This caramel date sauce is soooo easy to make and so perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth (like myself)! Dip apple slices in it for a sweet snack, or add it on top of your yogurt! My Caramel Date Sauce is vegan, gluten free, refined sugar-free, and low fat, so go ahead, indulge!

Caramel Date Sauce

1 cup Medjool dates, packed
1 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Remove pits from dates. Place dates and water in a jar or container and soak overnight or about 6 hours. Transfer the dates and their soaking water to a food processor and add the vanilla and salt. Blend until smooth and creamy.

    Why is it called caramel date sauce if there is no caramel in it? Or is there really such a thing as caramel?
