Guess what? It’s only two weeks until Halloween, which means only two weeks until the first excuse of the year to eat as much candy as your heart desires (moderation, of course!).
Guess what should be on your list of snacks as you stay at home and watch terrifying Halloween movies (WHY was Don’t Look Under The Bed a kid’s movie?!)? This Vegan Caramel Popcorn. You get all the candy sweet satisfaction that you want, with a whole lot less guilt and calories. Also, in just 25 minutes.
We’ve been making this vegan caramel popcorn (do you say popcorn or vegan caramel corn? ) for the last two years, albeit a much harder version. Fast forward to years, this version tastes even better, is done in just 25 minutes from start to finish, and is a lot healthier.
The vegan caramel sauce for this caramel popcorn is made with salt, vegan butter, almond milk, maple syrup, cane sugar and vanilla. This caramel is so addictive that I knew I had to do a separate post on a vegan caramel sauce (yes yes yes!). The key ingredient to turning this delicious caramel sauce into salted caramel popcorn is, *drumroll* baking soda. Baking soda completely changes the texture of the caramel as it’s bubbling and makes it much lighter, and much easier to coat the popcorn with. This was the missing ingredient from our first vegan caramel popcorn and let me tell you, the difference is phenomenal. All you have to do next is coat the popcorn, then bake. Done, and done.
Don’t forget to share! Seriously, this vegan caramel popcorn makes an amazing gift (HINT to any of my friends). It’s very easy to care for, easy to make, and a pretty cheap but thoughtful gift. Of course; you should make your own batch, and a batch for your friends.
P.S. Here are some of the items I used to make this recipe if you’d like to use them too:

This popcorn is vegan and gluten free. You can store this in an airtight tupperware container in the fridge, but it tastes best and crunchy fresh!
I once used cane sugar but now use coconut sugar! Feel free to sub for this too, it won't be as sweet but just as delicious!
