Clean Caramel Popcorn
That is an oxymoron of course.. but that’s how it goes.
Today I was craving popcorn. I decided I also craved sweet. So I went to my obsession over at Pintrest and searched for a pin I thought I pinned a while ago.
I was wrong, it wasn’t on Pintrest, but I did remember where I had seen what I was looking for.
I personally made it with both Raw Honey, and a dash of Clover Honey. And I used Chunky Peanut Butter. I like the chunks.
And I do think that if I were to make this again, I would use less honey and more Peanut Butter. I liked the bits best where the peanut butter was the dominant flavor.
It was good… would be better with those changes. Though since it was a craving, I think I should have just gone with my plain old airpopped non buttered non salted popcorn… Cause I do believe that is what I was actually craving at the end of the day.
1/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
8-10 cups popped popcorn
Tip: Things move pretty quickly, and you are dealing with boiling sticky stuff so read through this first so you know what to expect and do.
1 – In a smallish pot, warm the honey on high heat. Bring it to a boil.
2 – Let it boil up in the pot about 1 inch. Remove from heat.
3 – Stir in nut butter with a whisk and whisk until smooth. You should be able to pour it.
4 – Pour over the popcorn and mix with a spoon. The mixture is hot, DO NOT MIX WITH YOUR HANDS. Unless you want a trip to the emergency room, and to not be able to work with your hands for a while.
Let it all sit and cool.
