Halloween is almost a week away! It’s our tradition every year to pick our favorite healthified (yes that is a made up word… LoL) treats and snuggle up with our favorite Halloween movies. In our Clean Eating Caramel Apple Dip post we mentioned watching It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown (Amazon instant video here) every year. Another movie we simply love is Wallace and Gromit, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit! (Amazon instant video here) We aren’t scary movie people and having British ancestry we simply love the British humor. This caramel popcorn is going to go just great with such a fun movie!
We use the same caramel recipe that we use for our Caramel Apple Dip. As we mentioned in that post, there is sugar in this recipe. However, we honestly feel that a little treat now and then is not a bad thing. Halloween is a very sugary time so if you are eating homemade popcorn using organic sugar, no artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors, artificial colors or preservatives you have a pretty pure and tasty treat. So grab a bowl, gather the family and pop in your favorite Halloween movie! You won’t want to miss out on this special treat.
Clean Eating Caramel Popcorn
- 1 ½ cup organic sugar
- ¾ cup buttermilk
- ½ cup butter
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 ½ tsp. real vanilla
- ½ cup unpopped popcorn
Pop popcorn with an air popper. Put all other ingredients except vanilla in a large sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Once it boils keep stirring as it boils for about 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Mix into popcorn and enjoy! Salt lightly if desired.
If you are looking for a fun craft to do with the kiddies give Terracotta Pot Trick or Treaters a try! They are pretty adorable 😉
