Caramel Popcorn Delight

14 Jan

Yeah, hurried home to make this before a movie date night (saw Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) last night, but totally forgot to bring it with us! Stupid, too rushed. But we had it afterwards and it was delicious! This ain’t a low-fat recipe.


  • 1/2 c. unpopped corn
  • 1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. corn syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 c. peanuts (unsalted)


  • Preheat oven to 200
  • Pop corn in the microwave. Don’t burn it like I did! Put the popcorn into a large bowl.
  • In a large, deep fry pan, melt the butter with the brown sugar, salt, and corn syrup, on medium heat, until big bubbles start to appear as it boils.
  • Take off heat, and pour over the popcorn, adding the peanuts also. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  • Place popcorn on a non-stick baking sheet (the kind with a rim) and bake for ~45-50 min on 200. Turn the popcorn every so often, if you have more than one layer depth on the baking sheet.
