Hello friends! Today I wanted to share a recipe with you that is a family favourite!
This Caramel Corn is actually my Grandma’s recipe that I remember my Mom making during the holiday season. Every year I looked forward to it, and now I make it for my family who love it as much as I did! I absolutely love recipes that get passed down through the generations…there’s something so special about sharing a recipe with your loved ones that generations before you have been enjoying too. Love that SO very much.
So now I pass along to you our family’s Caramel Corn. This popcorn is creamy, chewy and delicious! I hope you try it and love it!
This caramel corn is also perfect for gift giving or simply just enjoying with your family during a movie night! It’s quick and easy to make and it’s crazy delicious! Trust me when I say this treat will get devoured. I seriously could eat this all by my lonesome!
- 11/3 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup salted butter
- 1/2 cup corn syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 8 cups popped popcorn
- 1 cup pecans & almonds optional
Pop your popcorn. Then measure out about 8 cups and spread it out onto a large cookie sheet.
If you wish to add nuts to your popcorn, you might want to toast them in a 350 degree oven for 2-5 minutes, watching them very carefully. Toasting them brings out amazing flavour! When the nuts are toasted, sprinkle them over the popped popcorn. Set aside.
Now on to the caramel! In a saucepan melt the butter, then add the sugar and corn syrup.
Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Continue to boil, stirring occasionally until the mixture turns caramel coloured.
Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
Then pour the caramel over the popcorn and nuts. Using a fork, gently mix, and separate into clusters.
You can eat it at this point while it's soft and warm, or you can let it cool and enjoy it later.
Store in a tightly closed container.
Deeeelish! I hope your holiday season is full of cheer and much deliciousness!
