Caramel Popcorn

Looking for something to flavour up your popcorn instead of the usual butter. Well instead of doing the usual I tried to make my popcorn sweeter, because I just enjoy sweet things. So… I decided to dress up my popcorn with caramel and must I say it was gone in just one day.  It was delicious that I would make it over and over again. If you have a sweet tooth then you should try this.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 10 cups popped popcorn

Directions:

  1. For the popcorn: Heat 1 tsp of  vegetable oil over low heat in a large, heavy pot. Add the corn kernels (about 8 Tbsp) and stir. Cover and shake pot until all the corn has popped. (When popping has slowed down, remove the pot off the heat.)
  2. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Leave the popcorn in the pot, uncovered or transfer to a bowl.
  3. For the Caramel: In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. After it boils, do not stir it for about 4 minutes.
  4. Remove it from the heat and stir in the baking soda and vanilla.
  5. Pour it over the popcorn, stirring to coat.
  6. Place coated popcorn into a baking pan(greased or with parchment paper)
  7. Bake for one hour and for every 15 minutes stir it.
  8. Remove it and allow to completely cool before breaking it into pieces.
  9. Enjoy!
