Before I gush about this caramel popcorn, I need to tell you how much your comments and congratulations on my SEO for Food Bloggers eBook meant to me. I’ve found that there’s this weird sort of lull in between the hustle of creating something and launching it, where a lot of questions and self-doubt can creep in: What am I doing? Was this really a good idea to put myself out there? Will anyone except my parents buy it? If you’ve ever created a product, you almost certainly know what I’m talking about. All of your support and enthusiasm has really helped me to keep those not-so-nice inner voices at bay, because truly, I am so proud of this eBook and being able to translate my 8+ years of SEO work into the type of guide I wish someone had written for me years ago when I was going through a big old SEO and blogging learning curve.

Okay, so this popcorn. Where to start? It’s crunchy-chewy, sweet-salty, 5 ingredients, and takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish (including making the 3-ingredient vegan caramel sauce!). It’s also impossible to stop eating and better than any caramel popcorn I’ve had in the past, vegan or not. Did I mention it’s low-glycemic, too? Coconut nectar, baby. That stuff is made for caramel.

Ingredients

Cuisine: Gluten Free, Vegan Servings: 10 cups

Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 7 mins Total Time: 12 mins

The best caramel popcorn you've ever had, vegan or not. Crunchy-chewy, sweet-salty, 5 ingredients, and less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Perfect for holiday snacking or gifting.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add the popcorn to a large mixing bowl and set it aside (you may need two bowls).
  • Add the caramel sauce to a small pot over low-medium heat and bring it to a simmer, stirring often. Remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  • Pour the caramel sauce over the popcorn and gently stir to coat the popcorn with the caramel.
  • Transfer the popcorn to your baking sheet, sprinkle with sea salt, and bake for 7-9 minutes, until the tops are just beginning to turn a darker caramel color.
  • Allow the popcorn to cool completely, then break it into pieces and enjoy! Leftover popcorn can be stored in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

Notes [2]

If you’re short on time, feel free to buy pre-popped popcorn. I’ve made this recipe with plain popcorn and lightly salted popcorn and both times it was fabulous.

It takes some self-discipline not to eat all of the caramel popcorn before baking it, but try to hold off. The baked popcorn is a dreamy combination of crunchy and chewy—well-worth the 10 minute wait.
