* 1 c Soft Dates such as Majool, at room temperature
* 1/2 c Almond Milk
* 1/2 tsp Maca Powder (optional, for flavor)
* Pinch Vanilla Powder
* Pinch Celtic Sea Salt
Blend all the ingredients in a blender until completely smooth. Scape down the sides of the blender and rock the blender to help the thick caramel blend completely.
For 4 Caramel Apples, stab each apple with a stick. Empty the caramel in a shallow bowl and rotate each apple in the caramel. Use a butter knife to smooth over the surface of each apple. Pat each caramel apple with crushed pecans if desired.
For Caramel Apple Slices, empty the caramel and crushed pecans into separate bowls for dipping. Serve with sliced apples.
