Popcorn Anyone?

popcorn makerOne of the best Christmas gifts I received last year was a Cuisinart popcorn popper. Nearly every Sunday night I pop a big potful. I love popcorn!

Popcorn is also a terrific snack for a party! Here is a great microwave recipe for caramel corn from Confident Choices: A Cookbook for IC and OAB.

Amy’s Microwave Caramel Corn

  • · 1 c. brown sugar
  • · 1/2 c. butter
  • · 1/4 c. white corn syrup
  • · 1/2 t. salt
  • · 1/2 t. baking soda
  • · 3 qt. popped corn
  • · 2 large grocery bags (put one inside the other)
Combine brown sugar, butter, syrup, and salt in a 4-cup microwave-safe container. Cook for 2 minutes on high. After mixture comes to a rolling boil, add baking soda and stir well.
Place popcorn in doubled bag and pour the sugar/butter mixture over it. Fold the edge of the bag to close and return to the microwave. Cook on high for 1-1/2 minutes. Remove and shake well. Return to the microwave for another 1/2 minute. Remove, shake, and eat!
