Microwave makes caramel corn easy.
MY NAME is Chantel Shelton and I am 12 years old. My family and I have made this caramel corn recipe since I was 6. So two great reasons why you should try this are: No. 1, it's simple to make; No. 2, it tastes delicious!
1 cup raw popcorn
1 cube butter ( 1/2 cup)
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Pop the popcorn. Mix the butter, sugar, corn syrup and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Microwave on high until melted, then boil for 2 minutes. Stir in baking soda and vanilla.
Put popped popcorn in a paper bag, pour caramel mixture over, and shake. Cook it in the microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove the bag from the microwave and shake again. Microwave on high for 1 minute more. Remove and shake once again.
Empty into a large bowl, let it cool and serve.
