Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes
Servings 1 large bowl
- 1 tbsp oil
- 2/3 cup popping corn
- salt to taste
- 4 oz. dried apples
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.
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
