Homemade Vegan Caramel:
Start by making the caramel. In a small saucepan, combine the water and coconut sugar and bring to a low boil Add in the coconut milk and vanilla extract and mix Turn the heat to medium/low and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every couple minutes Remove from heat and add to a small container to put in fridge to thicken for about 10 minutes While the caramel thickens, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and add half of the pretzels across Add a teaspoon or so of peanut butter on top of each pretzel then another pretzel then add to fridge to set for 10 minutes Remove caramel and pretzels from fridge and add a teaspoon of caramel on top one each pretzel then add a few crushed peanuts to each Add to freezer to set for 10 minutes and begin melting the chocolate in the microwave or over stove Gently dip each pretzel into the chocolate to cover. I put a pretzel on a fork and use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over it Add each chocolate pretzel to baking sheet and set in freezer until chocolate is hardened and enjoy! Notes
