Top-ranked recipe named "Best Ever Caramel Corn"
This simple and fantastic tasting Caramel Corn, with only 4 ingredients, always leaves them begging for more! I have even had people offer to pay me to make it for them!
"I've made this recipe twice -- and love it. I substituted the corn syrup with brown rice syrup (no adjustments) and it is delicious. I increased the popcorn by two cups the second time (I just wanted to try to get lighter coverage). It is so crispy and light. It is simple and delicious."- amyjaja
Spread popcorn in a large baking pan. Preheat oven to 300F. For caramel mixture, in a medium saucepan combine the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and add 1/4 tsp salt if you wish (I never do because the butter I use is salted). Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture boils. Continue to cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over popcorn. Toss quickly to coat. bake for 15 minutes and then stir. Return to oven and bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes until well coated. Turn popcorn out onto foil to cool. Break into pieces and serve. Stores well in zip-lock bags.
Nuts can be added if you like or once cooled carmael corn can be covered in chocolate for a real taste treat. I use microwave popcorn which is another why I do not add salt and for 2 bags I make a recipe and a half of the caramel.

Momiitz 3 years agoIf you love caramel popcorn this is the recipe for you. Much better than store bought because you know exactly what is in it. I will defiantly be making this at least twice a month. My husband and kids loved it. I might even make it this year for holiday presents.
Cosmo113 3 years agoI am resubmitting because I thought I hit 5 stars and only 4 showed up. This was a little messy to make, but definitely worth it!!
