Popcorn Caramel Crunch Recipe

I live in popcorn country, and there's even a town nearby that has a "Popcorn Days" celebration. This is a good snack and also good for entertaining during the holidays, especially because it can be made ahead of time.

Directions

  1. In a large greased bowl, combine the popcorn, peanuts, noodles and raisins; set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, corn syrup and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches soft-crack stage (270°-290°) with a candy thermometer. Remove from the heat. Stir in cinnamon.
  3. Pour over popcorn mixture; stir until evenly coated. Immediately pour onto a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan.

Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
