Recipe Time: Crunchy Caramel Corn

posted on: Tuesday, December 14

This past weekend was one of the laziest weekends that I can recall having in a while. {Rain and gloomy weather will do that.} We barely left the couch and it was perfect! When we got a craving for a snack I had to get crafty with whatever was in the kitchen and remembered this super easy recipe for caramel corn. It only took a few minutes to whip up and once it was ready we ate ALL of it! A savory snack with just the right amount of salty and sweet. I'll definitely be making a batch when I head home for Christmas! Find the recipe below.

Crunchy Caramel Corn

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 10 cups plain popped popcorn

  • 1 cup cashews, coarsely chopped

  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar

  • salt

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Butter a large rimmed baking sheet; set aside. Place popcorn in a large bowl; add cashews to bowl and toss to combine. Set aside.

  • In a small saucepan, bring butter, sugar, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons water to a boil, stirring constantly. Working quickly, drizzle popcorn with sugar syrup, and toss.

  • Spread popcorn evenly on prepared baking sheet. Bake, tossing occasionally, until golden and shiny, about 40 minutes. Transfer hot popcorn to parchment-paper-lined baking sheet; let cool. Store in airtight container up to 1 week.
