Oh gosh guys, I love this time of year. I’m a sucker for fall time and fall treats. Caramel popcorn is one of them and I have to make it EVERY year because it practically melts in your mouth!
Yes, this probably goes against all my “clean eating” rules… but it’s one of those recipes that is worth the calories. This is perfect to take to a party, or just eat the whole bowl to yourself while you watch Netflix. (I won’t judge!)
I got this recipe from my husband’s family… and I’m addicted! Love this fall tradition mostly because it tastes amazing and is super easy. (No fires started over here!)
Here’s the recipe:
MELT-IN-YOUR-MOUTH CARAMEL POPCORN:
3 bags of popped popcorn
1 C. light brown sugar
1 cube of butter
1 C. Light Karo Syrup
1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
Melt all ingredients over medium heat while stirring. Once it starts boiling, keep stirring for 2 minutes. Pour caramel over popcorn while it is still warm and stir so that it gives a nice coat of caramel all over. At first you might feel like you don’t have enough caramel, but keep stirring — it’s the perfect amount every time I’ve made it!
That’s it! So easy. Make sure when you make your bags of popcorn that you take out all the kernels that didn’t get popped, that way there aren’t any “hard” surprises in your yummy treat!
