Toffee Popcorn

My success with a rather delicious salt and vinegar popcorn recipe has spurred me on try some others…. it seems like the start of a popcorn journey with manifold possibilities… and popcorn is the perfect easy-eating snack if you’re still off food like Big S.

I’ve read about using nutritional yeast to make a cheesy flavour which I intend to try, but today’s experiment was dairy-free toffee popcorn. The result was pretty yummy, not dissimilar to Butterkist. Who needs dairy-loaded popcorn when the homemade dairy-free version is just as nice and twice as good for you, and a fraction of the price? 🙂

This recipe was inspired by the one found at Veg Bitch with a couple of little tweaks.

Toffee Popcorn (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, sesame-free, soya-free, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan)

makes a large bowlful

  • 2-3 cups freshly popped corn
  • 2 tbsps dairy-free spread
  • 2 tbsps soft brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • pinch of salt

– Melt together the dairy-free spread, sugar, syrup and salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for a minute or so.

– Place the freshly popped corn in a very large bowl (you need enough room to stir well)

– Slowly pour the sugar mix over the freshly popped corn, stirring all the time, until all the popcorn is well coated

– Serve

        I made these ones

        I added a drop of lemon essential oil to the batter and the icing as well. I topped them with some colorful sprinkles. They were a hit with all the little girls!

        Good addition – glad they liked them. Have you got any photos? x

        Yes, but for personal reasons, I don’t post photos of my kids and all the photos have kids in them. I may email you some! Is your email on your site? I’ll check

        I don’t blame you not posting pictures of your kids… I wasn’t sure it was a good plan. My email isn’t on my site, but it’s… I’d love to see a photo if you’ve got the time to send one over 🙂 xx
