This popcorn is fantastic for a couple reasons.
First, it taste really good & second because you can add
whatever candy bar or candy you want. Your imagination
can run wild! It’s a great snack for a family movie night or
to put into little gift bags.
I chose to pop my own popcorn instead of using prepackaged bags.
Less preservatives that way.
I’ve list the instructions below but feel free to use
whatever works best for you.
Oh did I mention homemade caramel sauce!? Oh yeah, it’s GOOD!
Fold the top of the brown paper bag twice.
When the popping slows down, remove bag from the microwave.
Then add chocolate & chopped up Snickers.
8 quarts popped corn (about 2 cups of kernels)
1 cup salted butter
2 cups light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
30 “Fun Size” Snickers bars coarsely chopped
3 oz melted milk chocolate
Preheat oven to 200°
Over medium heat boil butter, brown sugar, salt & corn syrup for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat & stir in your baking soda.
Put popcorn into a large roasting pan & pour caramel over your popcorn. Stir to coat evenly.
Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven & stir in your coarsely chopped Snickers. Return to the oven for 3 more minutes so the Snickers begin to melt slightly.
Remove from the pan & transfer popcorn to your counter top lined in wax paper.
Drizzle melted chocolate on top of popcorn.
Let set & store in an airtight container.
