  • Author: Katie
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Chill Time: 2 hours
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Yield: 14-15 caramels 1x


Healthy, naturally sweetened caramels infused with turmeric and cinnamon.



Caramel Filling

Chocolate Coating

  • 3 oz dark chocolate
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (optional)*


  1. Place dates in a small microwavable bowl.  Cover with water and microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds**
  2. Drain water from dates.  Add to food processor with coconut oil and vanilla.  Blend.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to food processor.  Blend until mixture is a smooth, thick and creamy texture.
  4. Place a couple tablespoons of coconut flour in a small dish.  Scoop out about 1 tablespoon of the caramel filling and drop it into the coconut flour.  Pick up the filling and roll it into a ball.
  5. Place the fillings on a small baking sheet or plate.  Freeze for at least 2 hours to firm.
  6. Melt chocolate and coconut oil in small saucepan over low heat.
  7. Once fully melted, remove caramel balls from freezer and dip (one at a time) into chocolate.  Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet to set.
  8. Optional: after coating all caramels in chocolate, drizzle remaining chocolate on caramels and add a pinch of turmeric.
  9. Store in fridge or freezer.


*Coconut oil makes chocolate runnier and easier to work with.  However, this ingredient may be omitted.

**If you don't have a microwave or don't want to microwave the dates, then place them in a bowl and boil a pot of water.  Pour the boiling water over the dates, covering them completely, and let them sit for 5 minutes to soften.  Drain the water and use.
