December 11, 2013 at 10:27 pm Leave a comment

caramel corn

1/4 cup popcorn kernels
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 tablespoon corn syrup
1 tablespoon molasses
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup of your favorite nut (optional)
1 brown lunch bag
1 large microwavable bowl

Put unpopped kernels into brown paper lunch bag, fold top over just a couple of times, (leave enough room for kernels to pop)
microwave on high for 2 minutes
pour onto cookie sheet, silpat, or parchment
remove the unpopped kernels

Put sugar, butter corn syrup, salt, and vanilla in microwave safe bowl
heat for 1 1/2 minutes

Now be very careful, this is hot

Add baking soda to cooked sugar, it will foam a bit
pour over popped corn and mix (careful now, it’s really still hot)
coat well
place in a large bowl
microwave to 1 minute

Pour coated corn onto cookie sheet to cool and harden
break apart the big chunks

Note: Every microwave is different, and every batch comes together differently. You need to watch, so things don’t get out of hand and burn.

#audreycancook Another #leftover creation, skillet #appletart, a #smallbatch #audreycancook Skillet chicken #enchiladas a #smallbatch.  A great recipe for clearing out the fridge. On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
