I've been dying to make these treats for Halloween.  Believe it or not, you can make Caramel Corn that won't give your dentist or your naturopathic doctor a heart attack. That's because it's made using brown rice syrup which is gentler sweetener that actually requires your body to take a bit more time to digest than refined sugar.  Which is a good thing.   I can't stop stuffing myself with the candy corn.  While this healthier twist on a traditional treat may not be appropriate for doling out to trick or treaters, it is a definite must try for the family and close friends at this special time of year.  Welcome Ancient Ones!  Happy Samhain!

Candy corn is a festive seasonal confection that is easy to make.   I am 
especially pleased to say that this recipe won’t rot your teeth. 

8 cups popped organic popcorn kernels– about 1/2 cup dry 
2 tablespoons organic coconut oil 
1/2 cup organic brown rice syrup 
1/4 cup organic almond or peanut butter 
1 teaspoon vanilla 

Heat ingredients in a saucepan until liquefied, about 5 minutes. 
Stir until well blended.  Slowly pour mixture over popcorn while mixing.  
Let cool and enjoy, or then transfer the popcorn mixture to a glass baking 
pan and bake in the oven at 350 degrees.  Be careful not to scorch it– check 
every 3 minutes or so until slightly browned and crunchy.
