DIRECTIONS

  • Pop popcorn. (Update: 2- 3.5 oz bags popped microwave popcorn can be substituted, approximately same volume).
  • Put popped popcorn in a large, brown paper grocery bag.
  • Stovetop: Add syrup, sugar and butter to a pan and bring to a boil for two minutes. (Update: In a microwave safe bowl, nuke until ingredients are melted and bubbly, 3-5 minutes.).
  • Add vanilla and baking powder and stir briefly.
  • While foaming, quickly pour caramel into the brown bag, over the popped popcorn. Roll the top of the bag together until closed and shake well.
  • Place brown bag into the microwave and nuke 45 seconds.
  • Remove bag from the microwave and shake well. Do not open the bag.
  • Repeat steps: nuke for 45 seconds, remove, shake well, 3 more times.
  • Nuke again for 30 seconds, remove, shake well and pour onto baking sheets to cool. Toss the bag.
  • Caramel will harden as it cools, break apart and enjoy!
