  • 16 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Remove from heat and stir in baking soda.
  • Working quickly, pour the caramel over the popcorn. Stir to coat.
