The most beautiful caramel corn

Ingredients list:

Popcorn popcorn, I used roughly 7 quarts.

brown sugar envelope; You will need two cups.

2 soft sticks of unsalted butter.

Dark corn syrup, use ½ cup.

1 tablespoon of molasses.

1 teaspoon kosher salt.

1/2 teaspoon baking soda.

Optional addition 2 cups salted peanuts.

Methods :

Step 1:

First, add the popcorn to a large skillet and distribute it evenly. Remove any unpressed kernels by picking through the mixture.

Step 2:

Brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, molasses, and salt should be mixed in a 2-quart pan with a thick bottom that can be baked in the oven. Stirring , bring mix to a boil on medium heat.

Step 3:

When a candy thermometer reaches 250 degrees Fahrenheit, or when a small amount of the mixture drops into ice water and forms hard balls, it usually takes about 12 to 14 minutes.

The fourth step:

When you add baking soda to the caramel, it will start to bubble and become a light brown color.

Fifth step:

Pour the caramel over the popcorn in the large grill pan, being careful not to splash it. Keep stirring with a wooden spoon until the popcorn is well coated. Make sure not to touch the caramel as it is really hot.

Sixth step:

Place the pan in a preheated oven at 225 F and bake for 20 minutes, uncovered. Next, remove the popcorn from the oven and coat it evenly with the caramel sauce.

Seventh step:

To finish the cooking process, you will need to return the pan to the oven. Keeping cooking for another 20 minutes is a smart choice.

Step 8:

Once you remove the caramel corn from the oven, it should be spread out on a parchment paper or silicone mat as soon as possible.

Step 9:

Allow complete cooling time. Using a knife, cut it into bite-size pieces. Store in an airtight container.
