... ok people - gimme a sec here :-).
I posted a pic of a yummy pan of caramel popcorn in the oven about 15 min ago on Facebook and people started asking if there was a recipe to share.
Why yes, yes there is *grin*.
And I thought it would be easiest to post it on this site than have it up in a convo on Facebook.
So here it is ... and I warn you - I've eaten about 5 handfuls in the last 10 minutes.
5 cups fresh air popped popcorn
1/2 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1. Melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Stir constantly until it begins to boil - then let it boil UNTOUCHED for 4 minutes.
2. Add the baking soda and vanilla; stir.
3. Pour over the prepared popcorn in a large baking pan (or two).
4. bake in 200F oven for 1 hour, stirring every 20minutes or so ... if you like it CHEWY, then bake less.
It's super easy ... but I will also warn you that I've been typing this with one hand as I accidentally poured the boiling sugar on my hand ... and it stuck - couldn't get it off - screaming craziness. Yup. I'm a classy cook with an icepack inbetween my stinging fingers *yuck*..
And hey ... have a good one :-).
