Gooey Salted Caramel Pecan Turtle Bars [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Vegan

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups vegan butter 
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided in half
  • 1 3/4 cups cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon molasses
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 2 cups toasted pecan pieces
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and line your baking pan with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Beat 1 1/4 cups vegan butter with an electric mixer until creamy. Add flour, cornstarch, powdered sugar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla and mix together until a dough forms.
  3. Press into your prepared pan and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack.
  4. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the cane sugar, agave, molasses, remaining butter, and remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla with 1/4 cup water. Stir until the cane sugar has dissolved.
  5. Once the mixture begins to bubble, stir in the coconut milk. The caramel will slowly thicken for 10-15 minutes- use a candy thermometer to measure the temperature and remove from heat once the caramel reaches about 240°F.
  6. Immediately pour the caramel over the prepared crust and top with pecans, chocolate, and coarse sea salt.
  7. Let the bars cool completely before cutting and serving.

I've been looking for a vegan caramel recipe for a long time. Thank you. I also followed the link to vegan butter. Can't wait to try that too. Would you tell me please, did this caramel have a coconut flavor?
