The good news is that it's also super easy! Here's the recipe:
Homemade Caramel Corn (with nuts)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (that's 1 stick)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
8 oz of your favorite nuts (optional)
1/2 cup of unpopped popcorn
3 Tablespoons of oil (to pop the popcorn)
cooking spray or silpat or parchment paper
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. I use my wok to make this treat but any large pot will do.
|Pop the popcorn|
|Keep the popcorn warm in the oven.|
|Start the Caramel|
|Simmer stir the caramel|
|Remove the caramel from the heat and add baking soda|
|The baking soda causes the caramel|
to change colors and bubble
|Add nuts if you like|
|Toss the popcorn with the caramel|
|Time to go back in the oven!|
|Cool completely or you'll burn your lips!|
Break the cooled caramel corn into chunks or pieces and enjoy!
Add a little zip to your caramel corn with finishing salts.
|Add finishing Salt for added zip!|
My husband likes it when I make this treat with seasoned nuts. He prefers Sea Salt and Pepper Nuts.
|Seasoned Nuts are great in caramel corn!|
