Caramel Peanut Popcorn

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 5 mins

Sweet and sticky popcorn and peanuts in a caramel sauce. The sauce sets and becomes like a popcorn brittle. This is so good for snacking on while movie watching or for parties. This can be stored for a week in an airtight container.


  1. Lightly oil a 26cm x 32cm Swiss roll pan.
  2. Pop the popping corn, either in a pot or in a popcorn popper.
  3. Discard any unpopped kernals.
  4. Transfer popcorn to prepared swiss roll pan.
  5. Sprinkle peanuts evenly over popcorn.
  6. Combine butter, sugar and honey in medium pan and stir over a low heat until sugar is dissolved.
  7. Bring to the boil and boil uncovered about 4 minutes or until syrup is a rich golden brown colour.
  8. Pour all over popcorn.
  9. Stand about 15 minutes and cut into pieces.

The flavor of this is really good. I only had salted peanuts and I loved the sweet/salty mix. I had some trouble "pouring" the syrup, which is why I'm not giving any stars. I suspect the problem is with my tendency to produce a "hard" boil rather than anything in the recipe.
