Ingredients
  • 1 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
  • ½ cup butter or coconut oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup sucanat OR brown sugar
  • Pinch sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Pop the popcorn and place it in a large bowl.
  2. I always grab a bigger bowl than I think I'll need, as it makes the mixing/tossing easier.
  3. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, sucanant, honey, and salt. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook/stir for around 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the baking soda and vanilla. It will foam up a bit, but that's OK. Simply stir it back down.
  5. Working quickly, pour the caramel sauce over the popcorn.
  6. Using a wooden spoon, mix and stir the sauce into the popcorn. You'll want to move in a timely manner here, as the sauce will begin to thicken/harden and we want to make sure we have full popcorn coverage before that happens.
  7. Either set aside to harden/cool for a bit and eat when desired OR bake.
  8. To bake: spread onto baking sheets, bake at 250 degrees for 30-45 minutes, checking and stirring frequently.
