These honey caramels are made with just 4 ingredients - gluten free, dairy free and paleo friendly.




  1. Combine honey and coconut oil in a small saucepan.  Melt over low heat.
  2. Once the coconut oil has melted, whisk in the tapioca starch.
  3. Pour about 1/2 tablespoon of the honey mixture into the slots of a miniature silicone muffin pan.
  4. Place the muffin pan on a baking sheet (so that it has a hard, flat surface to sit on) and set in the freezer for at least one hour to harden.
  5. Melt the dark chocolate*
  6. Grab the honey caramels from the freezer and dip them, one at a time, into the melted chocolate.  (Do this quickly, as the caramel is hard to work with when it softens.)
  7. Place the caramels on a parchment-lined baking sheet or plate to set.
  8. Optional: drizzle any remaining chocolate over the caramels and top with flaked salt.


*You can melt the chocolate in the microwave at 20-30 second intervals, in a double boiler, or melt the chocolate in a small saucepan, over low heat.
