It only takes about 30 minutes to make a batch of your own Cracker Jack or caramel popcorn... but with fewer calories and healthier fat.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Pop the popcorn (I use a silicon microwave popper, it's oil free)
In a saucepan, heat the butter (or coconut oil) and the maple syrup.
Boil, while stirring, for a solid minute.
Pour the mixture over the corn and gently toss together to coat the popcorn evenly. If you want salt, add it now.
Evenly spread the popcorn on a baking sheet which is lined with parchment paper, and bake for about 10-12 minutes until golden brown
Remove from the oven let the the caramel corn to cool. This crisps the coating.
Then seal in airtight containers, especially if you are in a humid environment.
