A great addition to any holiday spread, caramel popcorn also makes a great gift, and takes very little effort to make. So get in the kitchen and get started!
Step 1: Ingredients
- 12 cups popped popcorn (1/2 cup unpopped kernels)
- 2/3 heaping cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Step 2: Pop Corn
Heat your oven to 250oF (120oC). Coat a baking or roasting pan with cooking spray or butter. Toss the popcorn in the dish and keep warm in the oven.
Step 3: Gooey Goodness
Heat, without stirring, to 250 to 265 degrees F (121 to 129 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
