Home Made Crunch and Munch

If you love Crunch and Munch like me or my kids, you will surely enjoy feeding your family a healthier and cleaner version of this yummy treat! Just think, less fat, healthier fat and zero preservatives or extra garbage that they add to the commercial kind.

Just take a look at the store bought Crunch and Munch Ingredients:
Corn Syrup, Sugar, Peanuts, Popcorn, Butter (Pasteurized Sweet Cream and Salt), Margarine (Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Liquid Soybean Oil, Water, Salt, Sweet Dairy Whey, Soybean Lecithin, Mono and Diglycerides, Sodium Benzoate, Artificial Butter Flavor, Colored With Beta Carotene and Vitamin A Palmitate), Soybean Lecithin, Soybean Oil, Salt and Baking Soda.

Go Cleaner & Healthier!

My Ingredient List

1 Cup Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup Corn Syrup
2 Cups brown sugar 
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup nuts
12- cups of air popped popcorn 

In medium size sauce pan add the coconut oil, warm to liquid. Add 2 cups of brown sugar and dissolve, then add corn syrup and let it boil till sugar is dissolved.

If you are health conscious like me you would use air popped popcorn (Microwave popcorn is your option you might need like 3 bags for this mixture amount) Separate the un-popped kernels from your popcorn. Now and add your sugar mixture to the popcorn, little at a time.

Once you have your popcorn covered in the sugar coating, spread onto a baking sheet and toss and lightly bake for up to 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Don't let it burn, but it's to harden the sugar and bake the sugar onto the popcorn so your crunch and munch is actually Munchy ;-)
