Here is another in our series of holiday recipes. We’re not even pretending these are healthy so don’t eat too many!
Caramel Popcorn Balls
1/4 cup vegan butter or coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 cup vegan marshmallows, cut up, if they are the big ones
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoon corn syrup
5 quarts popped popcorn – that is a rounded half cup with our air popper
Place all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat except the popcorn, and stir until all is melted, and it is just beginning to boil. Pour over popcorn and stir with a wooden spoon. Wait until the mixture is just cool enough to handle, and with greased hands form into balls.
Warning: the mixture will be hot and sticky so be careful!
