Budget Caramel Corn-so easy to make!
Hi just wanted to post about something I made last night that came out pretty well.
I had seen an episode the other day of Sandra Lee's Semi Homeade and wanted to give this a try.
You take 1/2 c. of Caramel Syrup (the kind you use for sundaes) and add 1 c. packed brown sugar. Bring to a boil and let boil gently for a few minutes. Pour it over a large bowl of popcorn, mix, pour out on greased cookie sheets (makes enough for 2 full sheets) and let cool. Enjoy!
As I was mixing this I realized that you could make great popcorn balls using this method.
Here's what made it truly budget-when we go to the movies we usually get the large sized popcorn that includes refills. I refill the tub before we leave. I used a full tub of this popcorn to make the caramel corn.
I decided to use already seasoned popcorn (butter and salt) since Disneyland makes their caramel corn using their seasoned popcorn and it's so good! It's what I got in my Mickey Ghost Popcorn bucket.
Also, I did one large bowl as mentioned above. Then I used the remaining 1/2 of the syrup, added in some roasted, skinless almonds I recently bought at Sam's Club (these are soo good) that I chopped into small pieces (they come whole). This 1/2 of the batch I made for those who don't like nuts in the caramel corn. (like my DD11). You could add any type of roasted nuts or even small candies, like M&M's.
On the show Sandra Lee added some cinnamon oil and a little cayenne pepper but I like my caramel corn the purist's way.
ENJOY! And Happy Halloween to all!
