This is quick, easy and tastes great! I like that it uses 1 micro. bag because that's what I usually have on hand. There was plenty of caramel to coat all the corn evenly and it crisped up nicely. One warning, know your microwave. Mine seems pretty powerful, so I used the lowest of the times listed. I almost, but not quite, burnt it in the last step. Store in an airtight container?!? Ha, there won't be any left!
Wooohoo!! Fun, fast and delicious! I just made homemade microwave popcorn (1/3 cup popcorn in a paper bag) and 1/3 cup Spanish peanuts and it worked like a charm, just the right amounts. I love the suggestion from another reviewer who makes this for Christmas gifts for neighbors, great idea. Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe.
Super easy to make, without making a mess like other recipes. If you have a new microwave cut the time in half and you get better results. Great taste!
So easy and yummy! Followed the recipe exactly, only changed the last cooking time step. My microwave is 1100 watts, so I would micro for 40 second intervals, then stir. Only took me about 90 seconds to see that my caramel would get the right "crunch". Very easy!
I make this all the time it is soooo easy, made in minutes. Hubby loves it!! I make 2 batches at a time. Microwave the sugar, butter and syrup for about 5 1/2 minutes. I don't microwave again after adding caramel to popcorn. I just add the vanilla and baking soda pour over popcorn and spread in a sheet cake pan...and poof all gone in minutes.
Was delicious. Used agave nectar instead of corn syrup. Added salt. The salt rocked. Thank you!
delicious... a tip: don't touch the caramel with your fingers when you are mixing the popcorn into it. ouch. also, i needed 2 bags of microwave popcorn to come up with 2 quarts. i also have a high-powered microwave, so 4 mins making the caramel, then after the popcorn/nuts were added i started with 1 and a half mins, stirred, 30 more seconds, stirred, and then a final 30 seconds, and stirred one more time. awesome recipe!
After making this I can well understand all the excellent ratings. I used leftover movie popcorn and add in about 1/4 to 1/3 cup peanuts. The popcorn was gradually added and I had no problems coating it. This will be my go to recipe for caramel corn. Thanks much for a wonderful recipe.
Wow. This is so yummy! Melt caramel one minute at a time. Mine overboiled in the microwave. Delish--thanks!
Really good! My kids love this. I popped 1 cup of kernels in an air popper, cooked my caramel on the stove (about 5 minutes after starting to boil), and then added the popcorn at the very end. I also just used an unlined cookie sheet to cool on, worked fine! Thanks!!!
