Mmmm…Mmmm…Caramel Corn!

First, I got out my vintage (1980) Presto PopCornNow, and my Orville Redenbacher popcorn…

I popped 4 quarts (or there-about) popcorn (and the smoke detector only went off twice!Rolling on the floor laughing) and I poured it in a brown paper grocery sack, after I carefully sifted most of the old maids out….

(Did you know that corn syrup turns solid if you leave it in the cupboard for a few years, or maybe a decade? What’s up with that?!!!)

Here is the caramel mixture after cooking in the microwave…

…and here it is doing it’s volcano impersonation when I added the baking soda.

I poured it over the popcorn (and I added some slivered almonds to the popcorn), and shook the bag to cover the popcorn.

Microwave on high for 70 seconds…shake….

Shake again, tear open bag, and let dry. I did not let it dry. I like my caramel corn STICKY.

I used THIS RECIPE, but it’s the same recipe as I used (from a friend) the last time I made caramel corn (probably 10 years ago).

Have a great evening! I’m doing my part to make sure my dentist has cavities to fill the next time I go visit! Winking smile

Be blessed!

One of my favorite suppers, too, only mine is usually with a can of Diet Coke!

Carmel Corn is a huge weakness for me.

I've learned how to add brown sugar in the popper so when the popcorn pops, it coats the popcorn in sugary sweetness. Not exactly the same, but close when you are in a hurry.

Yum. My dad always made candy corn for us when we were kids. I think he was worried he'd burn it if he made caramel

One of my weaknesses is caramel corn. Oh, to be able to make it quickly will surely get me in trouble! Thanks for the yummy recipe!

I love Caramel Corn. I do mine the microwave also but instead of cooling in the bag I pour mine on a cookie sheet to cool. Love my caramel corn cool.
