After taking a bit of a break, I decided to jump back into the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle. The break was good, no weight gained back. However, I can feel my thyroid taking a hypo swing and I’d like to avoid packing on the pounds again.

When I drifted over to the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook group page, I saw lots of talk of caramel sauce. Well, that sounded about perfect! I raced to the kitchen and started playing and came up with a yummy sauce! (Thanks to all the THM ladies for the inspirations on the page, I never would have thought to try it. )

This was so fast to throw together. All you need (affiliate links) is butter, xylitol, molasses,  (make sure you get one without sugar in it!) vanilla extract and some cream (You can sub half and half) and you will have something you will swear should not be legal on a ‘diet’. It is for sure an S item!

Trim Healthy Mama Caramel Sauce
A sugar free sauce perfect for desserts or an added treat to your coffee!
  • ¼ cup xylitol
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ tsp. molasses
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • a dash of sea salt
  1. Melt butter, xylitol and molasses together on medium to low heat. Stir constantly to avoid burning the sauce. Add vanilla, cream and salt and stir until well incorporated. Pour into jar and allow to cool before serving.

This is a yummy treat drizzled on your morning coffee…sigh. And if you are looking for a chocolate sauce, this one is amazing (and dairy free!)

    I can’t tell you thank you enough for this recipe!! It is SOOO good! I could just eat it out of the jar with a spoon. I had it as a crossover with 1/2 an apple (didn’t have green so used red which made it a crossover). Yum! I gave my 16yo son a bite and he literally stole my bowl. I had to go fix me more :) Then he fixed himself another bowl with a whole apple. He isn’t even following THM!

    Thank you for this! My kids ate some very not-on-plan caramel rolls so I made a batch of this and a cake in a mug. It saved me! I’m now trying to keep myself from drinking the leftover syrup from the jar :/

    Thank you so much for this recipe! It is amazing! I’ve been using it in my coffee to make a “carmel macchioto”. I will be keeping a batch in the fridge at all times!

      Hi Gemma. This thickens pretty good. In the picture it’s still HOT so it looks thinner. I’ve made it and cooked it a bit too long and had to had a bit more cream or half and half. I hope that helps you.

    Any possibility of the spelling of “Carmamel” being corrected in the recipe box instructions before I print it?? (It’s spelled correctly elsewhere.)

      You might be able to do the sweet blend but not stevia. You need to the bulk of the xylitol to make the sauce. If you use the sweet blend, let me know how it turns out! :)

    Do you think that if I use liquid stevia and add some Gluccie to thicken it up this still might work? I have been wanting some Carmel lately and all I have is liquid stevia right now! :(

        Thanks. May try. I make millionaires for Christmas ( a family tradition) and you have to have Carmels! My daughters and I are all THMs and need a special treat.
