Caramel popcorn is one of my new favorite weekend treats. The salty and the sweet mixed together is pure heaven. Especially when using quality ingredients.
80g good organic light brown sugar
30g organic (or good), unsalted butter
2oz. organic (or good), double cream
Organic (or good) popcorn
Make plain popcorn and remove un-popped kernels. Transfer to a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. Lightly salt with Kosher (or good sea salt), and set aside.
Toss ingredients into a medium sauce pan. Melt on low heat until sugar dissolves. Hand-whisk on boil for about one minute. Drizzle over lightly salted corn.

It was so good. Didn't even last the afternoon.ReplyDelete
The photos are gorgeous! Must have been delicious!ReplyDelete
Thank you. Yes, they were yummy. That salt and that homemade caramel, using good butter. Oh my gosh ....ReplyDelete
Too bad I'm at work...I want to go home and make some.ReplyDelete
Oh goodness, that looks sooooo good. Wish I had some right now!ReplyDelete
Sounds tasty! We usually just drizzle carmel syrup from a bottle over our popcorn.ReplyDelete
It looks and sounds yummy.ReplyDelete
Li immagino molto molto buoni, proverò questa tua ricetta, mi ha incantata!ReplyDelete
It seemed a treat as I read through the recipe, and then I saw the pictures and knew it. The Mighty Happy Whisk, Bringer of Great Hunger.ReplyDelete
Becky: Hope work is going well.ReplyDelete
Christian: Thanks, it was amazingly yummy. And so easy.
Alex: From a bottle? What's that?
Holly: Yummy and easy and oh so good on so many things. More blogs to come using homemade caramel.
Caterina: I don't understand but I think it's good. Love your blog. Will get my translator up and working for blogger.
Porky: The top photo is our computer wallpaper.
Thanks everyone for stopping by.
I LOVE caramel corn! That looks delicious - and much healthier than what I usually cook up (with microwave theater-butter style popcorn...lol) Just wrote down the recipe - thanks!ReplyDelete
Mmmmmmm, i like it !!!ReplyDelete
Hi Donea Lee: You're welcome. It's such an easy formula and good on so many things. Hope you let me know how it works.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Magda. Hope you're having a great week, so far. Happy Eating.
Sweet and salty goodness.Love it.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry, Happy Whisk! :-)ReplyDelete
Must have been delicious!!
Hope you're having a great week! ;-)
Hi Lurker: Great to see you again. Yeah, something about the salt and the sweet that really works well.ReplyDelete
Caterina: No, I'm sorry. I can't get the translator thing to work. I loved your response because even though I didn't understand the exact words, I could tell it was good.
Ciao Caterina. Ho trovato un programma per farmi parlare con te in italiano. Questo è fantatico.ReplyDelete
So that's how they're made!ReplyDelete
Hi William. It is very easy and excellent in taste, so long as good ingredients are used. It is similar in flavor to kettle corn, but even better. I used to travel to get kettle corn, now I eat this. Thanks for stopping by.ReplyDelete
that looks like pure evil :-) Yum-oh!ReplyDelete
That's exactly what it is.ReplyDelete
Butter + Cream + popcorn = bliss!! I may not be able to wait for the weekend to make this!!ReplyDelete
And now I'm hungry.ReplyDelete
Lo-Mo: Don't forget the organic light brown sugar. Oh boy, it's just so good.ReplyDelete
Hi LoneIslander: Teleporting you some now.
Yum - that is one way to weaken my resolutions on healthy eating ;)ReplyDelete
Good luck with the new manuscript.
omg is not the oh my god... it is the sound i am making.... oooommmmmmggggggg!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the wishes, Elaine and thanks for the sounds, iZombie.ReplyDelete
That looks delicious! I've never tried freshly made caramel popcorn before, only the stuff you get at the store that turned stale three months prior to purchasing. I can tell I've been missing out, thank you for the recipe!ReplyDelete
I'm not usually a fan of caramel popcorn (though I love both caramel and popcorn individually), but this really does look scrumptious!ReplyDelete
Oh wow. Looks like drizzly delicious goodness!!ReplyDelete
It really was delicious. Thanks for stopping by.ReplyDelete
My Mom spoils her adult children by making caramel popcorn every year at Christmas. She made way more than usual this year so we all overdosed on it, but I still wouldn't turn down a bowl of it... it is too good! :)ReplyDelete
Just the thought of homemade carmel makes my mouth water. Amazing as usual Ivy!ReplyDelete
That's wonderful, Jen. What a great gift.ReplyDelete
Hi Todd: Thanks for the nice words. It really is simple and easy to make and even easier to eat.
Mmmmm!, I might try this with the kids on the weekend.ReplyDelete
Hi Ray. Hope they like it. When I make it we can't stop eating it.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the information, Vincent.
