Caramel popcorn was first introduced to me when I was at the movie theater. It was embarrassing how I kept on munching on those caramel popcorns before the movie starts and before they turn the theater’s lights off!
It became a ritual to buy a big bag of caramel popcorn each time I go to the movies. Funny I never thought of making some at home. Between you and me, I feel that the caramel popcorn is best enjoyed while watching a movie on the big screen.
Making Easy Caramel Popcorn
Recently, I got me some horror movies, YAY! I thought it’s about time I make some caramel popcorns at home and my sweet half couldn’t agree more.
This easy caramel popcorn recipe doesn’t require corn syrup, just the regular ingredients you usually find in your kitchen. Granulated white sugar, brown sugar, salt, butter, honey, and some patience, yes, you need the last virtue, since making caramel sauce gets tricky when it’s almost done, the time when you ‘re not sure if you have to cook the sauce for few more seconds, or it’s burnt.
It’s Tricky and Fun!
When the caramel is done and the time you were waiting for (pouring the caramel over the popcorn) is just a second away, you find yourself face to face with another challenge, and itis to ……. Quickly mix the caramel with the popcorn before it hardens and turns into a big clump.
We are not using the oven in this recipe, that’s why it’s easy with no extra steps. Since you have coated the popcorn with caramel you have extended its shelf life. Keep the caramel popcorn in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, it will not taste stale and the crunch of the caramel won’t be lost, just keep it away from heat and moisture.
Finally You Get To Make It.
