Sticky, sweet, and a whole lot of holiday cheer in this bowl of Vegan Caramel Popcorn. The perfect snack to munch on while you are wrapping gifts or writing your last minute Christmas cards. You won’t even need tape because your fingers will be sticky enough to keep the gifts all wrapped up… on second thought, maybe just enjoy this popcorn at a holiday party or parked right in front of the tv.
is this vegan caramel corn healthy?
Well, to be honest, eating a bowl full of kale is definitely healthier. BUT, this is a healthier take on some of the other recipes out there. This is a caramel corn recipe without corn syrup- which is key. There is still sugar and vegan butter in this Christmas treat but I believe you do need to enjoy everything in moderation and so a little suga and a little butta are ok once in awhile!
you serious Clark?
This recipe contains sugar, but it has clean ingredients and no funky syrups. It’s a great snack for the whole family to enjoy, while snuggled up and watching Christmas movies. I would highly suggest National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, which is hands down my favourite Christmas movie. All the Uncle Eddie fans out there, you get me.
get your hands dirty with this healthy caramel popcorn
A word of warning, your hands are about to become very sticky. When the caramel sauce is ready, you end up drizzling it over the popcorn (lying on a baking sheet). You have the option of using a spoon to toss the popcorn in the caramel but your hands work best! But you will get a little messy doing it this way. Your hands allow you to toss the popcorn appropriately before the caramel sauce cools too much and starts to set before it’s evenly distributed. So don’t be scared to get a little messy, the success of your vegan caramel corn depends on it.
here are a few reasons why I love this vegan caramel popcorn, so listen up!
- Whose ears don’t perk up at the words “salted caramel”? The answer to that is NO ONE. This vegan popcorn is perfectly sweet, with the right amount of crunch and the homemade caramel sauce is creamy and super easy to make. No judgement if you need to have a little spoonful before tossing the popcorn in it.
- This recipe is such an easy sweet-tooth satisfying snack. And you can make it in under 30 minutes. I’d say that is a big win in the busy Christmas hustle. If you love popcorn, you will love this salted caramel twist on the crunchy snack.
- I love that the popcorn isn’t’ doused in the caramel sauce. For sure some pieces are, but there is a nice balance. The caramel sauce isn’t overwhelming and the crunch of the popcorn stays intact.
