Dairy Free Peanut Butter Caramel Corn

I shared this yummy recipe on my Instagram and wanted to share it here as well.

I love caramel corn but I have found it hard to find good recipes for caramel popcorn that don't have dairy in them.

When I saw this one I knew I had to give it a try, not only because it is dairy free but also because it has two of my favorite ingredients >> peanut butter and marshmallows!! Below is the recipe with my tips and modifications.

<< Vegan Caramel Corn Recipe >>

2-3 packages of microwave popcorn (popped)

1/2 Cup margarine (I used dairy free here – Earth Balance or Smart Balance Light)

3/4 C brown sugar

1/4 – 1/2 Cup peanut butter (I used closer to 1/2 Cup because we love peanut butter)

7 oz container marshmallow cream (You could also use marshmallows)

Melt everything (but the popcorn of course) in a large bowl in the microwave.

Pour popped popcorn into the bowl and stir well to coat. I used about 2 1/2 bags of popcorn because I wanted every single piece coated well!

Spread onto a foil lined cookie sheet and bake in oven at 300 degrees for about 10-15 minutes to crisp it up a bit. I like mine more gooey than crunchy so I did less time. 

Enjoy and let me know if you have another good dairy free caramel corn recipe that we can try!

    Can you tell me if it’s more like popcorn gooey cake or can you get it to a crispyish carmel popcorn state if you bake it long enough?

    I just took this out if the oven and it smells fab. I tasted some before baking, which was probably a mistake because I’m fighting the urge to eat them hot from the oven, lol

    Just so you know, regular marshmallows aren’t vegan as they contain gelatin, but they are starting to make vegan marshmallow alternatives which I’m pretty sure you can find at whole foods. 🙂
