Turns out – it’s EASY and far more delicious than the stuff you buy in the store!! Who knew? I decided to be a little adventurous and make a Praline Caramel Corn. Pralines have nuts, sugar and cream…so how did I do it?
I made the caramel from a recipe on Pioneer Woman – I figure for something like that – I’m going to go tried and true and basic. It was simple ingredients: brown sugar, butter, vanilla, salt and heavy cream. Throw it all in a pan – bubble up – whisk and you’re done!
After that you just layer all the popcorn on a sheet pan – I chopped the pecans into smaller pieces and sprinkled them throughout. Then just drizzled the caramel all over the popcorn! Then you pop it in the oven for an hour – stirring every 20 minutes.
Simple Truth and Private Selection were real winners with this and man oh man – I dare say – I will never buy caramel corn again!!! The oven baking really made it crunchy! And that cute towel in the background – it’s from the Pioneer Woman collection – I figure I owed it to her since she gave me the caramel recipe!
