Twix bars, caramel apples, caramel dip, caramel sauce. Pretty much everything containing caramel is guaranteed to be gobbled up in seconds.
Since I made my diet a bit healthier, my caramel consumption has reduced significantly. There’s still the occasional treat, of course, but caramel is far from a staple in my house.
That is, it wasn’t until I stumbled into this recipe for Crazy Caramel Sauce. It’s from the blog The Fit Foodies, and guys, it really is crazy. The recipe replaces butter with nut butter, sugar with maple syrup, and cream with milk for a resulting caramel that tastes, dare I say it, even better than an original caramel sauce!

Anyway, after finally discovering a healthy caramel sauce (that’s not made with dates!), I immediatly started brainstorming recipes to use it with. I had some leftover Chocolate Avocado Frosting in the fridge and both recipes together spurred the creation of these bad boys:
Chocolate Caramel Cake Bites! They taste even better than they sound.
