Vegan Caramel Corn

This is a great snack & easy to make, and it's vegan.

There are many different ways to make caramel corn.

One way is to make the popcorn, then make the caramel, then add to the popcorn to the very hot caramel, which can damage the corn because of the intense heat of hot caramel.

Another way is to make the caramel up to the soft ball stage, then make the popcorn, then add the caramel near when the popcorn is about to start popping.  This is the way I like to do it.

You can't really mess caramel up and you don't even need to measure the ingredients.  The coconut milk evaporates as it is cooked.

Add some coconut milk and brown sugar to one of the pots
Also add vanilla extract if you are using it *optional
Set it on medium heat
Stir

It will bubble up while it is cooking.  Take this time to prepare the next pot with canola oil and popcorn seeds.  Make sure to add a little extra oil.  Stir it.  Don't start cooking the popcorn yet.

After a few minutes, you should begin stirring the caramel.
