Salted Caramel Popcorn

Salted Caramel Popcorn is the name of the game tonight courtesy of Shelly over at Cookies and Cups. To God be the glory that I had enough after one serving and didn't dive right in. All things in moderation remember? If you love caramel this one is for you.

 Note: I didn't pop my popcorn in a popper. I used a good old fashion pot on the stove. Also if you wanted to make this a tad bit healthier, I think you could cut down a little bit of the butter and sugar and get the same effect. I think a 1/2 cup of each would be fine (I'll try this next time and post an update if it works out good).

Let me know if you try it!

Happy Saturday!!!

  • 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels (about 16 cups popped corn)

  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  3. Pop popcorn kernels using air popper into a large bowl.
  4. In a small saucepan melt butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and 1 tsp salt together over medium heat. Bring to boil. Boil for 4 minutes without stirring.
  5. Pour caramel mixture over popcorn and stir to coat evenly.
  6. Pour popcorn into lined pan, sprinkle remaining salt on top (1/2 tsp - 1 tsp depending on your personal taste preference) and place in oven. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

You can add in 2 cups of nuts to the un-coated popcorn if desired! Coat with caramel as states!
