Christmas Favourites: Chewy salted "caramel" popcorn bites (refined sugar free)

This chewy salted caramel popcorn is the ultimate Christmas treat. You won't believe it doesn't contain any refined sugar...

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup any nut butter, except peanut butter as the flavour will over-ride (and if its salted then don't add the extra salt below)
  • 1/4 cup rice malt syrup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1.5 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 4 cups popped corn kernels (made from popping about ¼ cup corn kernels)
Chewy salted "caramel" popcorn bites: a delicious Christmas treat

Method:

1. Line a small tin with baking paper.
2. Place nut butter, rice malt syrup, honey, vanilla extract and sea salt (if using) in a large saucepan over low heat. Cook on a gentle heat until the mixture bubbles and starts to turn golden. About 7-9 mins.
3. Remove pan from heat and add popcorn. Mix well until popcorn is covered with the sauce.
4. Transfer the mixture into your pan and press down into the corners with a spoon. Set aside to cool.
5. When set, cut into small squares and store in an airtight container.
