When making homemade carmel corn, try this! Wash your kitchen sink very well, I even spray it with a little rubbing alcohol and dry with a clean towel. Then cover your drain stopper with about 3 layers of foil (lay foil on top and form it around the stopper) and insert the stopper in the drain. Pour your popped corn in the sink, pour the caramel over it and mix. When you are done, all you have to do is clean the sink, it is big enough and it will not move while you are mixing.

Take popcorn that is already popped. Then take 3 tablespoons of peanut butter and mix with 3 tablespoons of honey. Melt together over low heat till runny. (if it needs to be more liquid, add more honey) Pour over the popcorn. Toss well. The kids and adults I have made this for love it.

Does anyone have a copycat recipe for Kernel Seasons caramel flavor popcorn seasoning? I enjoy it immensely at the movies, and it seems like it could be replicated at home somehow. I'd like to try a homemade version before buying the product. Any ideas?

I'm not sure about that seasoning you are mentioning, but you can make caramel corn yourself. Brown sugar is the key.

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup popcorn kernels.

Heat the oil and add 2 popcorn kernels. When they pop, add the sugar and popcorn kernels. You MUST keep shaking the pot otherwise your sugar will burn. Becareful, the sugar/caramel topping will be hot! It is so good and addicting. You can also use white sugar instaed of brown and add salt afterwards for kettle corn.

There are a few caramel popcorn recipes in this ThriftyFun archive link:

A rich flavored sounding recipe here:

A microwave recipe here:

And a Cracker Jack's copycat recipe here:

http://www.cdki  pcorn10046.shtml

If it helps to know, these are the ingredients in Kernels Caramel Seasoning: Sugar, Brown Sugar, Natural Flavor, Caramel Color, and not more than 2% Silicon Dioxide, Tricalcium Phosphate and Soybean Oil added to prevent caking.

Doesn't taste at all like store-bought caramel corn, this stuff is awesome and habit-forming. It makes a bunch, so serve it at get togethers and parties. Tastes just as good the second day, so you can make it ahead of time.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • pinch cream of tartar
  • 8 quarts popped popcorn (appx 1 cup, unpopped)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Place popcorn in a large baking pan or cookie sheet.

Place white and brown sugar, syrup and butter in a saucepan, bring to a boil, cook and stir 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda and cream of tartar. Pour mixture over the popcorn, stir.

Bake 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Store in a covered bowl or pan, no need to refrigerate.

Servings: 32
Time:30 Minutes Preparation Time
60 Minutes Cooking Time
