Gluten Free, Corn Syrup Free Caramel Corn Recipe
adapted from: brown thumb mama
Here is a good little recipe for a healthy alternative to corn syrup filled caramel corn, that your family will love!
Things you will need:
7-10 cups Plain or lightly salted popcorn
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
1 cup coconut sugar
cookie sheet or jelly roll pan
1 cup pecan (optional)
3 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp organic vanilla (optional)
The Better Made Popcorn is gluten free, peanut free, dairy free, and low fat. Best of all . . . . no work involved!
Evenly spread out your popcorn onto your parchment covered tray.
Brown your butter or melt your coconut oil over low heat. Add in your 1 cup of sugar, stirring continuously. Do not let it boil or it will burn. Just keep it over the heat long enough to dissolve the sugar into your oil of choice.
Here is the sugar that I chose to use. I like to use coconut sugar because it tastes so much like brown sugar.
Take your dissolved sugar mixture off the heat and stir in the salt, baking soda, and optional add-ins. Feel free to be creative! Maybe add some carob chips!
Carefully pour hot mixture over popcorn and thoroughly mix until all the popcorn is well coated. Bake on 250 for 60 min. Stir every 10 – 15 min until sugar mixture has been mostly absorbed.
Cool and enjoy!

How to Have a Christ-Centered and Gluten-Free Halloween
At the By Grace Cakes bakery, we look at Halloween as a chance to preach Christ. Here are a few simple ways to keep Jesus Christ at the center of your Halloween.
1. Keep it Child-Like
What does it mean to keep Halloween child-like? Let this night be for Christ first, and then for the kids. Keep this in mind when picking out costumes and decorating your home. When opening up the door, to hand out candy, kids should ooooh and aaahhhh over a fairy princess! Don’t let it be a scary zombie or inappropriately short dressed red riding hood. Keep is a a fanciful night of fun for your kids, like seeing his or her favorite characters come to life.
2. Keep it Family Focused
When decorating your home, let the kids help. Pick out pumpkins as a family and bring them home to carve together. Roast some pumpkin seeds and make great memories together! So skip the ghouls and the goblins and keep it happy and homey:)
Christian Pumpkin Stencils – I like everything but the communion cup. I do not support third party views of the links provided.
3. Keep Your Treats, Sweet
Skip the witches brew and the skeleton bones and stick with candy corn treats, God’s beautiful fall leaves, and pumpkin patches. Here is a free printable Halloween Cupcake Topper, to keep your fall family day, Christ centered.

I was so priviledge to meet such a sweet, Christian client this week. She is such a dear lady with a heart for others. By throwing her sister-in-law to be a beautiful bridal shower, my client wanted the bride to feel welcomed into the family. She had it all set. She wanted a wedding dress cupcake cake, and this is the result. God is good! It turned out wonderful! The family was so sweet that they even invited me to the bridal shower. What a friend we have in Jesus! and what a sweet new friend I made (i.e. my client).
The verse in the ring: Solomon 3:4 I have found the one whom my soul loves. (part of the verse)
All the cakes where dusted with a little edible luster dust. Also, edible pearls on the wedding dress. The bride’s theme was country, so the cake boards were covered with jute and decorated to match the wedding colors.
