Hello & Happy Thursday!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If there is one concept I recently fell in love with, is vegan caramel corn! As a child we all loved caramel corn, especially the kind that came in the large tins. Lord knows what was in that, but thankfully you can take a trip down memory lane and recreate this classic treat to be vegan and it’s just so easy!

 

What I love about carpal corn is that it’s of course nostalgic, easy, but it’s also a blank canvas. You can play around with the flavors, making the options endless. Why make plain jane caramel corn, when you can put a flavor spin on it! With the fall weather in full swing, I of course was craving pumpkin spice!

 

 

 

 

 


 

What’s fab about this recipe, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs tons of flavor, both sweet and slightly salty, perf for fall, can easily be made in bulk, the nuts add a savory component, you can switch up the nuts, you can use coconut sugar (caramel texture may be more grainy, less pourable) and it makes for even a great holiday gift!
