Maple Caramel Corn

Ali Segersten Dec 15, 2010

If you are craving something sweet and simple this holiday season then this recipe might be quite perfect. Making your own caramel corn using maple syrup is quick and easy! Bring a bowlful to your next holiday party or place it in a holiday tin and give it as a gift to a teacher. All you need to make this is an 8-quart pot, a small saucepan, two large bowls, and a large cookie sheet.
I've made this recipe using both butter and coconut oil. Using butter creates a more traditional caramel flavor, however, using coconut oil creates a bouquet of flavors that makes the caramel corn quite addicting.  Pictured here is the recipe made using coconut oil.

I have two more giveaways to share with you today, so please scroll on down and leave a comment to enter to win one of these amazing cookbooks!

You should pick me. Why? I'm 67 years old and in terrible pain from a car accident and chiropractic care gone wrong. I need help changing a lifetime of bad habits and their contribution to the back, feet, legs, and neck pain.

I'm trying to get my mojo back with cultured foods. I really don't know what I'm doing, but I'm sure a new cookbook by an expert at lacto-fermentation will be a rest-of-my-life companion!

Pick me and I'll talk you UP when people ask me how I made the changes!

Lovingly VS victoria2dc... you have the rest of my e-mail.

Hugs to your family!

Just made this caramel corn tonight and WOW! WOWOWOWOW! It is absolutely amazing. I used the coconut oil, and it gives it just this subtle hint... and it isn't too sweet... SO GOOD. Thank you!

the caramel corn looks DEVINE!

I'm gluten free and just found your blog and the caramel corn recipe. Yum!!

Being an acupuncturist I see lots of people going to me with digestive problems. Those who say they need to get off gluten but don't because it is so hard. I always suggest your cookbook because of the simplicity and healthy delicious choices. I can't wait to get your second book.
Keep up the great work!

I just love trying out new recipes from new cookbooks! Can't wait to try out the caramel corn recipe!

This Maple Caramel Corn is delicious and easy to make. Thanks for the recipe!

Yum!!! It's me, Erika :) My family is egg free & dairy free with a gluten rotation. Thank you!

This is fantastic! I think anything that goes into the oven satisfies my desires for Christmas treats as much as the taste. We've made the maple nuts, too, and are giving those as gifts.
Thanks for the great recipes!

Oh bless you (I don't know if I'm qualified to bless but...) for that caramel corn recipe. It's a HUGE craving of mine but I can't have cane sugar in any form. This will be such a nice holiday treat for me!

I just bought Kelly's Grain-free book, I can't WAIT till it gets here! If I'm lucky enough to be chosen, I would love the slow cooker book. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

Would love to have more cook books like yours. I react to everything and love to get away from dairy and gluten in a yummier way

My brother would go crazy over this - thanks!!

Thank you for the popcorn recipe just in time! Can't wait to check out the books.

We'd love a new gluten free, dairy free cookbook. My 8 year old son would thank you and my 6 year old daughter as well. We are all now gluten free and dairy & egg free & soy free! It's wonderful to have these wise people with great recipes! Debpublic@shanholtz.com

Thanks! Debbie

I am ready to try either cookbook.

Always love a sweet and salty combo!

As a Bastyr grad and dietitian in training (intern) I am constantly referring patients to your cookbook for tasty and nutritious recipes that are allergy friendly. Keep 'em coming!

Yay for awesome cookbooks! Cooking for my dad who is beef/dairy/rice allergic. :)

I cannot wait to try this! The caramel corn looks absolutely delicious and I am eager to try it both ways (with Earth balance butter and Coconut oil):)

Earlier this year when I found out that I could no longer eat wheat, garlic, or dairy I was feeling very lost... until I discovered this blog. Thank you again for another awesome recipe <3

Our family has dramatically changed our eating since we found out my 8 year old son had so many food allergies. We all were tested and found out we're all gluten, dairy, egg intolerant. Any kind of help with recipes would be wonderful with help from a new Cook book!
debpublic@shanholtz.com Thanks! Debbie

My daughter and I made the caramel corn and then ate it by the bowlful! I would love to win either of these cookbooks to put a little spice in our cooking life. -Abbi

I love you recipes...and I've been wanting to do a 'caramel' type popcorn for Christmas gifts...looks like I've found the recipe now! Thx.

I would love to win the Go Dairy Free book! My son has an anaphylactic dairy allergy and it would be great to learn how to make more dairy-ish meals for the rest of the family to enjoy.

Thank you so much for your blog! I recommend to everyone I talk to. I have LOVED every recipe in your cookbook too.

Thank you again,

Homemade Herbed Sea Salt Recipe (Herbamare)

If you have not already noticed, I absolutely love Herbamare! It is a fantastic replacement for salt or bouillon in savory recipes because it adds flavor without adding as much sodium. By replacing some of the salt with savory herbs and vegetables, you can naturally reduce the sodium while increasing the depth of flavors in your meals.
