Sorry for the late post but I didn’t have a photo so share!  This stuff disappeared so quickly that I had to scramble!  Currently, I have a new batch of Caramel Corn cordoned off with a “Duck Tape” fence.  Uh-huh, just try to break through that!

Anyway, while my guys were gone this weekend, I made a batch of Caramel Corn.  When they got home yesterday, we had a great dinner, movie night and then…they found it!  All I can say is, YES – recipe success!

 Caramel Corn With Sea Salt

12 cups of popped corn

1 1/2 stick of butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1 teaspoon baking soda

Sea Salt or Kosher salt – about a tablespoon to sprinkle all over the pan.

  • Heat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Pop corn and place in a roasting pan.
  • In a heavy bottom pan, melt butter, brown sugar and corn syrup.
  • Bring to a boil and cook for 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Add baking soda – mixture will foam up so take off of heat and stir until all ingredients are incorporated.
  • Pour over pop corn, stir and place in oven.
  • Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  • Spoon popcorn on parchment/wax paper.
  • Sprinkle with Sea Salt and let cool for 1 hour.  Do NOT break apart.
  • Once cooled, break apart, EAT or store in an air tight container.

~Notes *Add pecans, peanuts or any other nuts to the mix the last 15 minutes of baking.  *Drizzle with chocolate before breaking for an added touch.
