Do It Yourself: Maple Caramel Popcorn

Maple Caramel Popcorn

What You Need:

  • generous 15-16 cups of popped popcorn (remove all unpopped kernels)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (get the real stuff — Aunt Jemima and Mrs. Butterworth just aren’t going to cut it here)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

What to Do:

Preheat oven to 200F.

Place popcorn in very large, ungreased roasting pan.

In medium or large pot/sauce pan, heat brown sugar, butter, maple syrup, and salt over medium heat.  Stir occasionally until bubbly around the edges.

Continue to cook without stirring for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat.

Stir in baking soda until foamy.

Pour sugar mixture over the popcorn, tossing to evenly coat.

Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Spread popcorn on parchment paper to cool for 30 minutes.

Store in tightly covered containers or in zippered freezer bags.

  1. I would like to eat this. Now if possible. This looks like an incredibly dangerous recipe :-P. Is there any reason I couldn’t use a butter substitute for allergy boy?
