(Image credit: Joe Lingeman)

Date caramels are one of those culinary magic tricks that you can't even believe works until you try it. You pulse whole dates with a few other ingredients, press them into a pan, and top with a bit of flaky salt. Just 30 minutes later you can cut out soft, chewy caramels that are free from added sugar (not to be confused with the loads of sugars naturally occurring in dates) and high in dietary fiber.

You didn't even have to turn on the stove.

But the ease of preparing date caramels is hardly the best part. These date caramels are incredibly delicious. Rich and creamy like classic caramels, they don't have any actual cream, making them a vegan-friendly treat. Sweet, chewy, and just a touch salty — they're the perfect little treat to share with friends or give as a gift.

Ready to try this culinary feat of flavor? Here's how to make date caramels at home.
