A few weeks ago for FHE I decided that I wanted to make caramel popcorn. Well, I had to pop the kernels over the stove and it didn't go over very well. I burned pretty much every batch I tried to make, got frustrated, and eventually just made the caramel popcorn anyway (although burned and disgusting). The next morning I tried three or four times to make good popcorn. It never worked. So, when I got home from Argentina I decided I would make good caramel popcorn. My Mom and I worked on it until we got it right. And it was so good.
(Not really) Caramel Sauce:
1 1/3 c sugar
1/2 c karo syrup
1 c butter
1 tsp vanilla
Mix until melted and boiling, turn to low heat for 4 minutes. Pour over large bowl of plain popcorn and mix until well-coated. Spread over wax paper or tinfoil to dry so it doesn't cluster too much.
Oh, and, luckily this recipe is 0 calories per serving! (Psych!)
