Homemade Caramel Corn Recipe


Homemade Caramel Corn Recipe

One of my favorite things “down the shore” is caramel corn on the boardwalk.  {If you are from the NJ/PA area, you will totally understand what “down the shore” means, if it not, it means at the beach}.

I asked Mystery Husband to recreate the popcorn at home. He found an awesome recipe from AllRecipes that he tweaked slightly. It was so yummy, that this recipe has become a a regular treat in our house.

    thank you, I tried a recipe similar to this years ago and lost it. I think this might be the one. If it is, its great. Thanks

    Is it as good as Johnson’s Popcorn??

  • Can Mystery Husband come on over here and make me some?? I am starving!!

    Thanks…you just made me drool over caramel popcorn. Like finishing a whole bag of Kettle Corn from the fair was not enough. :( ughh… summer is the worst if you want to lose a few lbs. Fairs, boardwalk, all these “free” veggies/fruits from the garden. Ok I am going for a run now so I can make this later :)

    I have an even easier version for when you want it fast.

    1/2 cup air popped corn

    2 T butter
    2T syrup (even Log Cabin works)
    2T brown sugar
    splash vanilla

    Microwave mixture until melted, about 1 minute

    Pour everything into a brown paper bag (like from the grocery) and shake.

    put in microwave for 2 minutes
    repeat 2 more times
