Vegemite caramel

20 minutes - 1/2 pint 2of

Cadbury released a vegemite chocolate bar earlier this year, as usual, I only found out about it this week. I liked the idea so much, I decided to make something inspired from it. Ended up making some vegemite caramel.

I currently have two vegemite jars, a gift from a friend in Australia. It's delicious, but I don't always know what to make with it. It's great on toast, but aside from that... mind goes blank.

The vegemite caramel mix of the Cadbury bar intrigued me. Vegemite is very salty, but I happen to be a big fan of salted sweets – I'm looking at you sea salt chocolate. If I added some to date caramel (instead of salt) I knew it would taste good. I have Alissa from Nourishing meals to thank for the idea of date caramel. I used deglet noor dates for this recipe, because it's what I had, feel free to use medjool dates instead. Medjool dates are great, b.ut you don't have to use them. They're expensive, and their cheaper counterpart work just fine.

I was right, it tastes amazing. Cut a few apples up, and dip them right into the vegemite caramel! You can also spread it over some toast! This is a weird mix, but believe me, it tastes awesome.

There are a few places in Montreal where you can get vegemite like, Ta pies on Park av. near Mont-royal street has some. Otherwise, you can get one of your nice Australian buddies to send you some!
