Who doesn’t love popcorn especially with caramel?! Well I know someone who doesn’t ;). Whenever I go to the cinema with family or friends, popcorn is always a must alongside some nachos. Some people like theirs with cheese, butter or simply with salt and for me I like it with caramel.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth like me then you should try making one of this and it’s quite easy with just a few ingredients that you’ll find in your home.

Ingredients:

Popcorn
1 tbsp Unsalted Butter
1 tbsp Oil (any flavorless oil)
90g Popcorn
1 tsp Salt

Caramel
100ml Water
210g Sugar
1 tbsp Unsalted Butter

  • First off you’ll need to make the popcorn, in a sauce pan put the oil and butter over a medium heat. Wait for the butter to bubble.
  • Put the popcorn in the sauce pan and give it a good stir to make sure all the kernels are coated with oil.
  • After stirring, pop the lid on and drop the heat down to a low heat then wait for it to start popping.
  • Once it’s popping away nicely, you need to make sure it doesn’t burn by giving it a shake every now and then. When the popping slows down and eventually stops that means you’ve popped all your kernels its time to turn off the heat and transfer it to a bowl. Add the salt.
  • Set the popcorn aside.
  • To make the caramel, on sauce pan put the sugar and water then turn the heat to medium to low heat. This process needs a keen eye to make sure it doesn’t burn.
  • Once the sugar turns into a deep amber, it’s time to turn off the heat and add the butter. Keep on stirring until it’s liquidy and smooth.
  • Pour it over your popcorn and give it a good stir as soon as your popcorn is coated, you need to work quite quickly and transfer it all into a square baking tin or any tray lined with parchment paper and spread it out evenly.
  • Let it cool for a few minutes. Once it’s all cooled down it’s ready to be transferred into a bowl.
