Chris’ Caramel Corn, Veganized


Each year around Christmastime, my hubby, Chris makes Caramel Corn.  Be warned:  it is very addictive and scrumptious!


  • Popcorn kernels (and popcorn popper)
  • 2 c. Brown Sugar
  • 1 c. Vegan Butter (like Earth Balance)
  • 1/2 c. Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla


Make 30 cups popped popcorn.  Mix and bring to a rolling boil the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and salt.  Boil gently for 5 minutes.  Stir occasionally.  Remove from heat.  Add baking soda and vanilla.  Mix well.  Pour over popped corn and blend thoroughly.  Bake 1 hour at 200° stirring every 15 minutes.  Store in airtight containers.


About Living Well

I am a vegan who loves food and loves life. Why am I vegan? Vegan living seemed to be a holistic way to live. Choosing to live as a vegan is helping me to live more environmentally conscious, more ethically, and more healthy. That said, I still wanted to be able to have foods that I loved. This site will be a place that I share ideas on living well and share vegan recipes. Some recipes are naturally vegan; other recipes I will take and veganize them. My influences in cooking are from my Granny (who is now 96 years old) who taught me how to make homemade buttermilk biscuits, syrup cookies, okra, and other southern comfort favorites; my mom, who knows how to host, and from living in places like London, Spain, and Costa Rica. When I am not cooking I am a professional artist. Cooking is just one more way I get to be creative. May these recipes inspire you, and may they always be delicious! P.S.
