Ingredients

Popcorn

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2/3 cup popping corn
  • salt to taste
  • 4 oz. dried apples

Caramel

Instructions

Pop Corn

  • In a large pan with a lid, heat the oil.
  • Add the popcorn to the hot oil and plate the lid on the pan.  Shake the pan gently back and forth over the heat so the popcorn kernels don't burn.
  • Keep shaking the pan back and forth once the corn starts popping.  Once the corn is done popping turn off the heat, remove the lid and add salt to taste.
  • Pour the popcorn in a bowl big enough that you can stir it around.

Caramel

  • In a small saucepan add the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and cinnamon. Heat to a boil, stirring the mixture. This takes about 5 minutes.
  • Once the mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat and add the 1/2 tsp. of baking soda.  This will cause the caramel for foam up slightly. 
  • Immediately pour the caramel over the popcorn and apples.  Stir completely to distribute the caramel.

Baking the caramel corn

  • Heat the oven to 250 degrees.  Pour the caramel covered popcorn onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes turning the caramel corn over every 15 minutes.
  • When done pour the popcorn into a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap.
