  1. Put the sugar and coconut milk in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until fully combined. Bring to the boil, then simmer vigorously for 15 mins, stirring occasionally, until thickened and slightly reduced.
  2. Remove from the heat and whisk in the spread, vanilla and salt. Pour into sterilised jars and leave to cool; the sauce will continue to thicken slightly as it cools. It will keep for up to 1 month stored at room temperature; once opened, use within a week.

Tip: To sterilise glass jars, wash in hot, soapy water and rinse well. Dry in the oven for 15-20 mins at gas 1, 140°C, fan 120°C until hot and completely dry. Boil metal lids for 10 mins, then leave to dry.
