Caramel Popcorn Recipe
Make a batch of this sweet and buttery caramel popcorn to share with friends. It only takes 5 ingredients—no corn syrup required!
- 2 (3.29 oz) bags plain popcorn
- 3/4 c butter
- 1/3 cup white Karo Syrup
- 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
Make popcorn and place in a large bowl. Be sure to get rid of all the unpopped kernels.
Using a medium sized microwave safe bowl add the butter, brown sugar, syrup and salt. Heat in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Add the baking soda to the melted ingredients. The mixture will foam up. Stir well.
Pour over popcorn and toss together evenly coating all of the pieces.
Place the coated popcorn in the microwave for 1 minute and then stir. Place it back into the microwave and heat for another minute. If you want crunchier popcorn, heat for another minute.
Allow the popcorn to cool and enjoy!
Note: If you used salted popcorn, then just reduce, or omit, the added salt.
