Carammmmmel Corn!

Carammmmmel Corn!

This is one of my all time favourite recipes. I have played around with the quantities, and ingredients, and it is a very forgiving recipe. You can use brown sugar, or white sugar. I have also tried adding honey.
The ingredients are roughly….
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of butter
1/4 cup of corn syrup
a big bowl of popcorn
Start by mixing the sugar, corn syrup and butter in a saucepan and boil for a couple minutes

Keep boiling until it gets an almost fluffy texture. While it is boiling, spread the popcorn out on a cookie sheet. If you want to make coloured popcorn, add a couple drops of food colouring right before pouring over the popcorn. But, honestly, I have had mixed success with the colour. Green colour works well, but I tried making some red last week, and after baking in the oven, it turned out more of a brown colour. Still tasted great though! Next time I am going to maybe try festive sprinkles…

Drizzle the caramel over top of the popcorn as evenly as you can.

Bake at 325 for 15 mins, stir then put back in the oven for about 15 more minutes. Use a spatula to scrape all of the caramel off the pan and use it to drizzle over the popcorn…you don’t want to loose any of the caramel on the pan!

When you take it out of the oven, give it another stir to mix around any more caramel on the pan. Once it cools, it will clump a little, but you should be able to break it apart as it cools. Also, while it is still hot, I like to sprinkle some salt on top. It makes a huge difference…I love the salty and sweet combo! Enjoy!
