How to Make Delicious Caramel Corn
Did you bring your sweet tooth? Today I want to share with you a recipe for delicious caramel corn. This caramel corn is sooo divine…not your dry Cracker Jack type of stuff…this is delicious and has a slightly gooey coating. It is especially amazing served warm, right after you make it. It is a great treat to make for a family movie night, kid’s party, or when you just want something delicious and sweet. Just typing about it makes me want to go make some!!! One of the things that I love to do on this little blog of mine is share with you some of my favorite treats that I make here on our little urban homestead and today I am doing just that. You are in for a treat!
Caramel Corn Ingredients
Approximately 8 cups of popped popcorn
1/2 c butter
1 c brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c karo syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
How to make Caramel Corn
First you will want to pop your popcorn (PS I have also used leftover popcorn from the movies to make this caramel corn-YUM!).
While the popcorn is popping, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is completely melted, add all of the remaining ingredients EXCEPT for the baking soda. Stir continuously until you have a smooth sauce.
Remove from heat. Add the baking soda and stir in well.
The easiest way to coat the popcorn with the caramel is to put the popcorn in a paper grocery sack, then add a little caramel sauce at a time and shake/stir well. If you don’t have a paper grocery sack to shake the caramel corn in, you can use a large bowl or even a turkey roasting pan. You will want to use something deep enough that the popcorn isn’t falling out when you are stirring it.
If you like your caramel corn gooey like I do, be sure to put any leftovers in a Ziploc bag. Before sealing the bag, press out any extra air to keep the caramel corn from drying out.
It is great for a road trip snack! Just remember to have wet wipes in the car for your fingers! Enjoy!
Until next time-
