Caramel Corn

I’m going to Bethany Beach this weekend, and one of the things I’m most looking forward to is paying a visit to Fisher’s Popcorn, famous for its caramel and white cheddar popcorn. 

Two years ago, I made the mistake of coming back to work without a big tub of the stuff. Luckily for me and my coworkers, I quickly redeemed myself by making my own caramel corn and did so quite successfully. Still, I’ll make sure I grab some Fisher’s this weekend, because as much as I enjoyed making my own, the time savings from buying the stuff pre-made directly translates to more time at the beach. 

So without much further ado, I bring you this week’s throwback* recipe after the jump.

caramel corn
  1. 2.5 bags of popped Orville Redenbacher Tender White Popcorn
  2. 1 stick unsalted butter
  3. 2 cups light brown sugar
  4. 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  5. 1 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees and place your popped popcorn in a big bowl.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Then stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then boil without stirring for 4 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in soda and vanilla. Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat.
  4. Place in two large shallow baking dishes and bake in preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for 1 hour or until you're satisfied.
  5. Remove from the oven, let cool completely, and have yourself a blast breaking your popcorn chunks into smaller pieces.

      What do you mean, not obese? You haven’t seen me lately, but that will be changing soon. I hide the evidence well.
