Salted Caramel Popcorn

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Recently my girls netball club was hosting a bake sale fundraiser, we were asked to bake some cakes, biscuits or sweet treats.  I thought many would make baked items so I wanted to take along some individual sizes packets of goodies so those at netball on the day could eat them there and then. Individual bags of salted caramel popcorn was one of the many items I made.

Or to control serving sizes, as it’s so easy to continually eat, serve in individual cups.  Popcorn will last 2 days in the fridge.  Left any longer and the sauce will make the popcorn a little soggy.

For the fundraiser, I spooned popcorn into plastic treat bags and tied them up with ribbon.

Find how to make popcorn at home here simply using kernels, oil and a saucepan, makes this delicious treat that little bit cheaper.

I made my sauce in the thermomix, but I have also included a regular recipe, find extra recipe below.

Love, love, love caramel popcorn but only make it at Christmas otherwise I would be eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner 365 days of the year. If you want it to last longer and get some extra crunch, pop it in a slow oven for about 20 minutes once you’ve mixed the caramel sauce through (test for doneness every 10 mins). This makes it super crunchy and it will keep in an airtight container for at least a week – or so I’ve heard. I wouldn’t really know cos I eat it all well before then!

When I select “print” for the stovetop sauce, it leads to the thermo recipe?

We’ve noticed this in another recipe too, must be a glitch, we are looking into resolving it 🙂
