Caramel Corn


Source: Kimberly Dykhouse

4 bags of popcorn
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. light corn syrup
2 sticks of butter, cut into small pieces.
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 t. real vanilla

Pop bags of popcorn and remove all unpopped kernals. Divide between 2 large bowls. Set aside.

In a heavy saucepan combine brown sugar and corn syrup. Stir over medium heat until it bubbles rapidly and you can see the bottom of the pan when you drag the spoon across the bottom. Add butter bit by bit, stirring constantly. Let it bubble until you can see the bottom of the pan again. Slowly stir in sweetened condensed milk. Let it come to a boil. Boil and stir for 2 minutes. This is the time to really watch the caramel so that it doesn't burn.

Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and good dash of roasted cinnamon. Stir.

Pour about a quarter of the caramel over each bowl of popcorn. Stir till coated. Add another quarter of caramel over each popcorn bowl again. Stir.

It makes a ton but we've always made it for a crowd and it always seems to disappear.


Carmel and Chocolate Popcorn

My college roommates and friends, Amber and Ashley Gossling, used to make the popcorn and I LOVE it. It is so yummy and beautiful.

3/4 c. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 1/2 c. mini marshmallows or 12 big one.

Stir until it boils over med heat.

Mix with about 24 cups of popped popcorn. You can use microwave, homemade or half of each kind of popcorn. Combine carmel and popcorn. Spread out on wax paper. Sprinkle with sliced almond (if you want). Drizzle with white or milk choc over the top. Sometimes I add mini M&M's, or Oreos. At Valentine's it is awesome with the Carmel, White Chocolate and Red Hots. However you like it. Allow it all to cool on the wax paper and then break it into pieces. Then, bag it and make your friends happy!


Sticky Caramel Corn

My family LOVES this caramel corn. It is no bake so it stays more yummy. This is also good shaped into popcorn balls, or you can use the caramel for caramel apples.

2 gallons of popped corn (be sure it is plain unflavored)
1 cup corn syrup
2 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk (I use the fat free kind and it is great)
1 Tablespoon vanilla

In a large saucepan bring corn syrup, brown sugar, and salt to boil. Add butter and return to a boil. Add sweetened condensed milk, stirring constantly until it reaches soft ball stage (228 degrees). Remove from burner. Stir in vanilla. Let cool slightly. Divide popcorn into two parts and lay on two greased cookie sheets (I line mine with silpat for easy cleanup). Pour equal amounts of caramel over each. Stir gently until coated. Allow to set for 2 hours.
