5 Ooey Gooey Caramel Popcorn

Caramel Popcorn





This is an easy, fast buttery caramel popcorn that is ooey, gooey, sticky and sooooo addictive.





Last spring, my 16 year old was asked to a girl's choice dance.


This large, new, 30 something gallon container was dropped off on our front porch.











It was COMPLETELY filled with theater~style buttered popcorn.








The instructions were to find all the footballs hidden throughout the popcorn.








Inside each football 'egg' were some gumballs and a yellow sticky note.









Each sticky note had a letter that spelled out the name of the girl inviting him to the dance.








We tried to give away the popcorn, but was not successful.

Then we thought, "Why not make Caramel Popcorn?"


This recipe usually calls for microwave popcorn, but we had TONS of it...







The ingredients are simple.

Brown sugar.








Butter. Not a lot, since the popcorn is already buttery.









Light corn syrup.











Mixed together in a heavy bottomed sauce pan.








Brought to a rolling boil.

Don't forget to add the vanilla....








Immediately pour over the popcorn and stir well.








Once you start eating this, you won't be able to stop~
