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 our friend shipped them to us last year. It's delicious but I don't always know what to make with it. It's great on toast but aside from that...
The vegemite caramel mix of the Cadbury bar intrigued me. Vegemite is quite 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 but you don't have to use them they're expensive and their cheaper counterparts work just fine.
I was right it tastes amazing. Cut a few apples up and dip them right into the vegemite caramel or you can 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 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!
