Ingredients
  • 6 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
  • ⅔ Cup of Popcorn Kernels
  • 8 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 1 Cup of Brown Sugar
  • ¼ Teaspoon of Salt
  • 4 Tablespoons of Corn Syrup
  • ¼ Teaspoon of Baking Soda
Instructions
  1. Preheat Oven to 325°.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Warm the vegetable oil in a large pot, over medium -high heat on the stovetop. Add the popcorn kernels, cover the pot and continually shake gently. Remove the pot from heat when the popping slows or stops. Spray a large glass bowl with non-stick cooking spray and pour the popped kernels into the bowl. Set aside.
  4. Add the butter, sugar, salt, and corn syrup to a heavy saucepan and stir over medium heat.
  5. Once the mixture begins to boil, reduce the heat and continue to boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  6. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add in the baking soda. Stir until the mixture begins to turns into a 'foamy' consistency.
  7. Working quickly, drizzle the popcorn with the caramel sauce, and stir to coat the popcorn.
  8. Spread the popcorn evenly on the prepared baking sheet.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and gently toss.
  10. Bake for another 15 minutes, remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool.
  11. Break the popcorn into pieces and store in an air tight container.
