recipes {chewy carmel popcorn}

who doesn't love a sweet & sticky treat? while this yummy snack would be ideal around halloween, maryclaire & i decided a monday night was a good enough excuse to make some soft & chewy carmel popcorn. while our hubbys were busy watching football, we were having a blast in the kitchen with the bachelor on in the background.


what you'll need >>
1 large bowl of freshly popped popcorn
11/8 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 stick butter
1/4 tsp salt {unless your popcorn is already salted}
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

 ^^^by the end of it, we were just a little hungry^^^

directions >>
1. pop a large bowl of popcorn. about 1/2 cup of kernels.
2. mix the next 4 ingredients together in a sauce pan over medium-high heat. boil for 2-3 minutes. remove from heat & add the milk & vanilla. return to heat & keep stirring just until the mixture begins to slightly boil again. then remove from heat.
3. pour the hot carmel sauce over the popped popcorn & mix!
4. serve warm or allow it to cool a bit. after cooled the carmel corn is still nice & chewy, so feel free to save some for later!

if you feel like your carmel sauce is too thick or there is just too much of it, just pop a bit more popcorn & add it to the mixture. another yummy addition would be some chopped peanuts or any other kind of nut.
