as I was sweeping the internet I wondered upon a deliciously wonderful recipe of buttery popped corn. let me tell you, it is the best caramel goodness you will ever eat.
… and if you think the treat will last more than one night, you’re wrong. my family and I devoured it in mere hours. and we all concluded that it’s the best caramel corn we’ve ever eaten.
the hardest part of the process was popping the popcorn because I was using a 25 year-old electric air popper… but luckily the kernels still turned out good.
after a few more steps… what do ya know, you have golden caramel corn!
I hope you enjoyed my first food post and try it out yourself. you won’t be disappointed! love all. love Madeline.
here’s the recipe…
10 cups (100g) air-popped popcorn*
1 cup (200g) light brown sugar
1/4 cup (80g) light corn syrup
1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat the oven to 200F degrees. Spread the popcorn out onto 2 large baking sheets. Set aside.
Combine the sugar, corn syrup, butter, cream of tartar, and salt in a medium saucepan over a medium-high heat. Stir constantly and bring to a boil for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and quickly stir in the baking soda. Pour the caramel over the popcorn and stir gently until all the kernels are coated.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes. Allow to cool on the pan and break apart large clusters if desired. Cover the popcorn tightly once cooled; it will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks.
