Your family won’t even notice that this is a much healthier twist on caramel corn, but you’ll be smiling as you watch them devour it! Perfect for movie nights and parties, its sure to be a firm favorite.
2 tablespoons coconut oil, regular or virgin (depending on if you’d like coconut flavor)
¼ cup coconut sugar
3 tablespoons EACH: brown rice syrup and agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon sea salt
1. Pop the popcorn in an air popper (or on the stove). You might need to do this in two batches. Place the popped popcorn in a very large bowl.
2. In a skillet set to medium heat, add the oil. Once it melts, add the remaining caramel ingredients and reduce heat to low. Gently boil for about two minutes.
3. Pour the caramel over the popcorn and stir – I use a heatproof rubber spatula to get all the caramel out of the pan and then I stir the popcorn with it.
4. Allow to cool slightly, serve and watch it disappear!
