INTRODUCTION

It’s almost the weekend and I’m planning a movie night for some teenagers for my son’s birthday party. Now you can’t have a movie without popcorn, and I’m smothering popcorn in caramel to make it extra special.

 

INGREDIENTS

 10 cups Popped Popcorn (I made 2 batches in a popcorn machine, but two microwave bags is perfect)
 210 ml Light Brown Sugar
 15 ml Golden Syrup
 110 g Butter
 3 ml Salt
 2 ml Vanilla Paste
 3 ml Bicarbonate of Soda

METHOD

1

Preheat oven to 180ºC

2

In a saucepan, place butter, sugar and syrup. Place on a medium heat and stir until sugar is dissolved.

3

Allow to come to the boil and boil for about 4 minutes, or until a sugar thermometer reads 124ºC. Start 4min timer

4

Remove from the heat and stir in salt, bicarb and vanilla paste.

5

Pour caramel over popcorn and stir to cover thoroughly.

6

Pour popcorn out onto a greased baking tray and bake for 8 minutes. Start 8min timer

7

Remove from oven and allow to cool before eating.

This should come with a warning: You can’t just have one handful!
