Way back when we were dating, my hubby and I would spend our Saturday nights with a movie, iced tea and caramel corn. It continues to be one of his very favorite things. A love he may have passed onto the kids. This caramel corn is my own version of the caramel corn my grandma (Effie) used to make for my cousins and I when we were little...for what else but movie night!
So find your loves, grab a movie and a cozy blanket and snuggle up with some of this goodness!
Caramel Corn (the best possible, super easy, really yummy recipe)
yield: 6-10 healthy servings | time: 10 minutes
2 cups popcorn kernels ready to pop (or 8 cups popcorn)
8 oz. butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
Directions: Pop your popcorn and set aside.
In a saucepan, combine remaining ingredient and whisk over high heat. Continue to stir the entire time. Slowly, the sugar and butter will combine and begin to bubble. Let boil for 4 to5 minutes, mixture will get lighter and start to bubble up. You will be able to see that it is smooth.
Immediately poor over popcorn and mix in. Let it cool before you eat it (I know, it smells delish and you have no self control at this point..but I assure you that the molten hot lava sugar will make you cry. Wait a few minutes)
