It’s Happy October Day here in our house, and to celebrate, we thought we’d go a bit off grid and have some caramel corn! Of course, this isn’t a “Paleo” treat, but it’s better than a lot of the alternative “Halloween” treats, and the ingredients are a heck of a lot better than what you would get at the store!
Recipe: “Better for you than other” Caramel Popcorn
1 cup organic popcorn, popped (I use coconut oil to pop mine)
1/2 cup grass-fed, pastured butter
1 cup pure maple syrup
1 cup full fat, unsweetened coconut milk
dash of salt
Set popped popcorn aside into large bowl. Bring remaining ingredients to a boil, lower heat and simmer until temperature reaches about 220 degrees. Drizzle over popcorn and stir, continuing to drizzle and stir until caramel is used up. Let cool for a few minutes, then gobble up!
Note: For a crunchy version, pop in the oven at 250 degrees for about 20-30 minutes, stirring once during cooking, then let cool completely before eating.
