Caramel Popcorn


One thing I love this time of year are those massive popcorn tins, and their variety of flavors. Since I couldn't wait until this weekend to pick up a tin from Trader Joe's, (they have one for $9.99!) I decided to make some caramel popcorn last night. I then ate it for dinner, after dinner, before bed...

I used this recipe in particular, because it uses no corn syrup. I also put the popcorn in the pot with the caramel, as opposed to pouring it over the popcorn, to mix it up. Pouring the caramel over the popcorn sounded like a visit to the ER and I wanted to avoid that. 

Lastly, I placed the popcorn on a baking sheet, and in the oven for about 5 minutes at 175 degrees. The outcome was a perfectly crunchy caramel popcorn. 
after the popcorn cooled, I mixed it with an equal amount of plain popcorn so it wasn't such a sugar rush.
My outcome will be a nice long nap as I come off this sugar high...
