  • Yield: 10 cups caramel corn 1x

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt + a teeny for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn (or 2 bags microwave popcorn)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250°F. Line two large baking sheets with silicon mats or parchment paper. Pop popcorn according to directions. Pour half of popcorn into a large mixing bowl.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt and cook over medium high heat, stirring occasionally. Allow mixture to boil for 3 minutes, then remove from heat and quickly stir in baking soda. The caramel will begin to bubble- this means you’re doing it right!
  3. Pour half of caramel on top of the bowl of popcorn. Pour the rest of the popcorn into the bowl, then top with remaining caramel. Stir using a wooden spoon or silicon spatula until the caramel coats the popcorn evenly. Place on prepared baking sheets, spreading the popcorn out to the edges. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon sea salt.
  4. Bake for 50 minutes, taking the popcorn out to stir it well every 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan before serving!
