Caramel Corn

Caramel Corn is an easy sweet and crunchy fall snack that tastes much better than the storebought version and with no corn syrup!

Caramel Corn is one of those treats that just about everyone enjoys. I’m not a fan of popcorn at the movies but I would happy have handfuls of homemade popcorn, so you can imagine my excitement when for my Yahoo! Food post I got to select caramel corn to make. It’s very easy to make, uses ingredients you probably already have at home and reveals a sweet, crunchy, and addictive snack that you can enjoy during any of your favourite shows.

This is where I come in, five episodes later of Modern Family, happily chomping down.

Mr. Bakes reads Yahoo! almost every morning so it’s quite common ground for me. I was pretty pleased with the vast selection of recipes, articles, and topics provided for food – they’re always on top of food trends and offer some pretty great cooking techniques. If you know me you know I can spend hours just reading up on that sort of thing.

The recipe I chose from Yahoo! Food was provided by former Bon Appetit senior web editor, Julia Bainbridge. The recipe  is a simple one. You melt butter and sugar over a stove top, pour it over the popcorn, and essentially toast it in the oven. It can’t get any easier, and the result is very rewarding. We’re actually eating it right, as I write this post, and as Mr. Bakes shows me funny videos encouraging procrastination.

Gotta love him!

When recreating this recipe I made it with raw sugar and you could also use vegan butter to keep it vegan. You can find the recipe for the Caramel Corn here!
