admin's picture
Ingredients
  Unsalted popped popcorn 12 Cup (192 tbs)
  Salted cocktail peanuts 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Light brown sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Unsalted butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (1 Stick)
  Light corn syrup 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Baking soda 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cream of tartar 1⁄8 Teaspoon
Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 225°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put the popcorn and peanuts in a large bowl.
2. In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt and bring to a boil. Add the baking soda and cream of tartar and boil over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the syrup is deep amber, about 4 minutes. Pour the hot syrup over the peanuts and popcorn and stir with a wooden spoon until evenly coated. Spread the mixture on the baking sheet and bake until slightly dry, about 1 hour. The caramel corn will harden as it cools; let it cool completely.
3. Invert the caramel corn onto a cutting board. Peel off the paper and break into chunks before serving.
