Corn Puff Caramel Corn Recipe

Corn Puff Caramel Corn Recipe

Because you don't need to pop the corn or use a candy thermometer, this is faster and easier than more traditional caramel corn recipes. To avoid messy cleanup, consider using a disposable aluminum roasting pan. —Caroline Monroe, Clinton, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:20 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) Puffcorn curls or popped popcorn
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Directions

  • 1. Place Puffcorn curls and peanuts in a large roasting pan; set aside. In a large heavy saucepan, bring the butter, brown sugar and corn syrup to a boil, stirring occasionally; cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add baking soda; stir well (mixture will foam up). Pour over corn curl mixture and toss well to coat.
  • 2. Bake at 250° for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Break apart and store in airtight containers. Yield: 5 quarts.

"This is so yummy and by far much better than traditional caramel corn. No kernels to get chomp on with this one!!! A must at Christmas! I leave out the peanuts as my family isn't crazy about them in it."
