Light Caramel Corn

Light Caramel Corn created by Creation In Hope

I'm a diabetic. (Trivia fact: Diabetics have no dietary restrictions.) My nutritionist gave me this great recipe for caramel corn out of a diabetic cookbook. It's light, filling, and makes a great snack. It's a hit with the kids and many of my friends. The popcorn can be fresh popped or out of a microwave. I'm not sure exactly how much popped popcorn is in a microwavable bag, but I usually use a full bag.

Ready In:
11mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 6 cups popped popcorn
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey

directions

  • Pop the popcorn and put it into a bowl. Make sure there is some extra room in the bowl if possibble. You'll need that room when you toss the popcorn.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, microwave together the butter and honey, only until melted. Over heat it, and it WILL burn (trust me, I've done it.).
  • Using a regular spoon, drizzle 2 spoonfuls of the butter/honey mixture over the popcorn and toss thoroughly. THIS IS CRUCIAL. Put any more on at once and it won't turn out right.
  • Repeat step three. Most of the mixture will be gone before it seems like you're getting anywhere with this. Be patient, and when the honey/butter is all gone, enjoy:).

    I'm really impressed with this recipe and it is exactly what I was looking for! We don't have any medical challenges, however I wanted something to put on the fresh, air-popped popcorn that wasn't laced with a bunch of ingredients that you can't pronounce....and minimal artificial sugars. This has just the right sweetness to entice the kids to give up the microwave popcorn and move on to something better for our bodies!<br/>My toddler and I are munching on it right now. Super simple and yummy!

    Well I made this recipe for the 2009 Spring PAC. I made this with 1 cup of un-popped popcorn. I did not measure it after it was popped. I truthfully figured that it was close enough. LOL I made this and honestly, I was a little unsure about it. I figured "No way this is going to cover all this popcorn." Yet I have to say that it did. I truly enjoyed it. It had a Caramel taste to it. It was extremely easy and had no problems with it. I have to say this is a definite Movie Time Kudos Keeper!! Two Thumbs Up!!
