Ingredients

  • 12 cups 12 popped popcorn (about 1/2 cup unpopped kernels)

  • 1 cup 1 unsalted butter

  • 2 cups 2 brown sugar, packed

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 light corn syrup

  • 1 teaspoon 1 salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon 1 vanilla extract

Directions

  • In the heart of our snacking adventure, let’s dive into creating Heavenly Caramel Corn—a crunchy symphony that elevates popcorn to new heights of sweetness.
  • Prepare the Popcorn:
  • Pop the popcorn using your preferred method, ensuring it yields approximately 12 cups. Remove any unpopped kernels.
  • Make the Caramel Coating:
  • Preheat your oven to 250°F (120°C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Once the mixture reaches a boil, let it simmer without stirring for 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove the saucepan from heat and quickly stir in baking soda and vanilla extract. The mixture will bubble up.
  • Coat the Popcorn:
  • Place the popped popcorn in a large mixing bowl.
  • Pour the caramel sauce over the popcorn, gently tossing to coat evenly.
  • Spread the caramel-coated popcorn onto the prepared baking sheets, ensuring a single layer.
  • Bake and Enjoy:
  • Bake the caramel corn in the preheated oven for 45-60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to ensure even coating.
  • Remove from the oven and let the caramel corn cool completely. It will continue to crisp as it cools.
  • Break the caramel corn into clusters and store in an airtight container.
