Longing to dash off to Carmel but stuck in a winter wonderland? Try Caramel instead! Here’s an easy-peasy quick pick me up for those Winter blahs….
- 4 quarts/litres popped – popcorn (about 1 cup un-popped)
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup Corn Syrup
- 1/2 cup butter (unsalted) or margarine
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Place popcorn in sprayed roaster. Preheat oven to 250 – place roaster of popcorn in oven to remove any moisture from the corn, in oven while it heats.
- While oven is heating, heat saucepan over medium heat, add brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter (margarine), heat, stirring constantly to a boil (less than 5 minutes – about 2 or 3 min). Boil, without stirring for 5 minutes, remove from heat, stir in baking soda and vanilla.
**Very important – store in air tight container immediately (no really, that’s only if you are like me & the kids and will grab a handful every time you walk through the kitchen.
