Crispy Buttery Caramel Corn Recipe


When it comes to caramel popcorn, there are two schools of thought: some like theirs gooey, while others like theirs crisp. In both versions, popcorn is coated with buttery caramel; it would be unthinkable to use margarine or oil since the buttery flavor is essential. The following caramel corn is the crisp version; its addicting, and its easy to crunch through the entire batch in a very short period of time.

About 16 1 cup Servings

3 1/2 quarts plain popped popcorn
1 cup cocktail peanuts (optional)

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  1. Preheat the oven to 250.

  2. Line an 11 x 17" jellyroll pan with parchment, or spray with non-stick spray.

  3. Spray a large bowl with non-stick spray (a giant plastic Tupperware bowl is ideal); add the popcorn and peanuts to the bowl and stir to mix.

  4. Mix the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt in a heavy saucepan.

  5. Cover the pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

  6. When the mixture boils, uncover and wash down the sides with a pastry brush and water.

  7. Let the mixture boil undisturbed 5 minutes.

  8. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and soda (the mixture will foam up).

  9. Immediately pour the mixture over the popcorn mixture and stir until well-coated.

  10. Transfer the mixture to the prepared jellyroll pan.

  11. Separate the kernels as best you can.

  12. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes, or until crisp.

  13. When cool, separate the kernels if some are still sticking together, and store in an airtight container.
