Hello everyone I am happy to bring you this fun, tasty, and easy caramel corn recipe today. It whips up in about 5 minutes, and the result is sugared caramel corn deliciousness.
Wok Caramel Corn
12-14 cups of popped corn -- I used an air popper.
1/2 cup butter -- I wouldn't recommend using margarine.
1 cup brown sugar
5 tablespoons water
Place the butter, sugar, and water in a wok. On medium to medium-high heat, bring the mixture to a boil, all the while stirring constantly. Return heat to medium, and then allow mixture to boil for another 2 minutes, without stirring. Then add popcorn and stir to cover popcorn. Don't eat just yet. Allow to cool until the caramel sugars somewhat. Note: You could make this without a wok, but with a wok it is so easy to coat the popcorn in caramel, and it is also fun!
My husband is working out of state this year. One of his former students and wife have been so kind to him by including him in their family activities, inviting him to dinner, and basically amazing people! When I was visiting him last month, Kyle had told me about the caramel popcorn they make. When they invited us over to dinner, I mentioned I would like their caramel corn recipe. Even though we had another dessert, Bucky, his former student, made us a batch, and I was smitten. Thank you Bucky and Christy, I don't know what he would do without you!
