DIRECTIONS

  • 1. Put the vegetable oil and a few test kernels in a large pot. Heat over medium high heat until the kernels pop, then add the remaining kernels in a single layer. Cover and cook, shaking the pot, until there are several seconds between pops. Transfer popcorn to a bowl.
  • 2. Lightly oil a baking sheet. I used a heavy coat of PAM.
  • 3. Wipe out the pot, then add sugar, corn syrup, molasses, peanut oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the peanuts.
  • 4.Cook over medium high heat until a candy thermometer reads 290 degrees, about 8 minutes.
  • 5. Remove from heat and stir in the popcorn until coated.
  • 6. Transfer the caramel corn to the baking sheet and let cool, then break into small pieces.
  • 7. ENJOY!
