Crunchy Caramel Corn
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + cooling
Makesabout 2 quarts
I made four batches of this caramel corn today. The flavor its awesome! However, after trial and error, I found with my particular microwave, I needed to double the amount of time that the popcorn was in the microwave (the last step). 4 minutes instead of 2 was perfect! (After two minutes, the caramel corn was still too soft after it cooled, 3 was better, but 4 was just right. I also experimented with the amount of the vanilla and found about 2 teaspoons instead of 1/2 was perfect for me! It really enhanced the flavor. Super easy recipe, it will be a staple in my house for years to come! Thank you so much!!!
This is so easy, I feel like I'm cheating. Oh if anyone is watching their cholesterol, the new Smart Balance sticks that are half butter, half Smart Balance, work just fine in this recipe.
Does anyone know why my caramel popcorn turns sugary instead of crunchy when I put it in the over to finish it?
