We love caramel corn! It’s a delicious, salty-sweet snack to have on hand for family and friends who drop in during the holidays. This recipe from Double Delicious is so easy, and totally worth trying over regular salted popcorn.
Prep time: 25 minutes
Total time: 1 hour
Yield: serves 12
1 1/4 cups popcorn kernels
1 teaspoon canola oil
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup sweet potato puree
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
1/4 teaspoon salt
Nonstick cooking spray
1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the popcorn and canola oil. Cover and let cook, shaking the pot occasionally, until you hear the popcorn begin to pop, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Once the popcorn begins to pop, shake the pot continuously until the popping slows down to once every few seconds. Turn off the heat and leave the pot covered until all the popping has stopped. Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl.
2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the brown sugar and honey. Over medium heat, bring to a boil and cook 2 to 3 minutes, taking care not to burn the sugar mixture. Whisk in the sweet potato puree, flaxseed meal, and salt.
3. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and toss to evenly coat the kernels. Spread the mixture onto two large rimmed baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.
4. Bake for 40 minutes. Stir occasionally at the beginning and more frequently as the mixture begins to dry out. The mixture will be soggy at first but after it cools, it will be crisp and delicious! Store in a zipper-lock plastic bag.
