You’ll need a candy thermometer for these recipes, unless you have a built-in one in your head. 🙂  I have two of them to choose from, so just take your pick. 🙂


Vegan Soy Caramels

2 cups dark corn syrup
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
1 & 1/2 cups soy milk, made from powdered mix using 2 times the powder called for
3/4 cups margarine (1-1/2 sticks)

Bring to a boil and boil until it reaches soft ball stage (use a candy thermometer).

Pour mixture into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan.

When the caramel is cool, cut it and wrap in caramel wrappers, or use as desired.


Vegan Soy Caramels

1 cup margarine
2 cups sugar
2 cups soy milk
1 cup light corn syrup
1 t vanilla

Grease an 8 inch x 8 inch baking dish.

Place all ingredients (except vanilla) in a large saucepan on medium heat.  Bring ingredients to a boil, stirring often.  Cook while stirring until candy reaches 245 degrees.  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour into baking dish.

Allow to cool completely. Then slice with a knife (or use kitchen shears and snip them). Wrap the pieces individually with waxed or parchment paper. This recipe will make approximately 100 pieces

Variation: Cook to 230 degrees F and add vanilla. Pour into a glass jar. Warm jar in a pan of hot water before pouring over ice cream or cake.

Here are two recipes for making your own Cream Cheese.


Vegan Cream Cheese

For this recipe you will need a tea towel or cheesecloth and a food processor.

1 c soft, medium, or silken tofu
1/4 c cashews
1-2 T water or soy milk
2 t sweetener: raw sugar, maple syrup, or brown rice syrup (optional)
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper

Drain the tofu, wrap in tea towel or cheesecloth, and squeeze out excess moisture.

Place all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Taste and adjust: add more tofu or water for a thicker or thinner consistency; more sweetener (if used) or dash of lemon for a sweeter or less sweet flavor.

Transfer to container, cover, and refrigerate (overnight is best). Use within 4-7 days.


Vegan Cream Cheese

12 oz. extra firm silken tofu
5 Tbsp. raw cashews, finely ground, or 3 1/2 Tbsp. cashew butter
4 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. liquid sweetener (optional)

Place the tofu in a clean tea towel or cheesecloth, gather up the ends and twist and squeeze for a couple minutes to extract most of the water.
Crumble into a food processor with the remaining ingredients and process for several minutes until the mixture is very smooth. You might have to stop the processor to loosen mixture with a spatula a couple of times.
Refrigerate. It firms up with refrigeration.

Makes 2 cups
