Microwave Carmel Corn

Our dear friends always make wonderful carmel corn for small group meetings, and I finally thought to ask for the recipe! This is by far the easiest carmel corn recipe I’ve ever seen, and it really tastes great. We made some last night, and I wanted to share! It’s pretty allergen free, as long as you can have corn. Here it is:

Pop 1 cup popcorn and put it into a large paper bag.

In a microwave safe bowl combine:

3/4 cup butter or butter substitute (we used the substitute, and it was great!)
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
3/8 cup karo syrup
3/4 tsp. salt

Microwave it all until boiling (2 minutes, stir, 2 minutes., stir, 1 minute).

Then microwave for 2 minutes more on high. Take it out, and stir in 3/4 tsp. baking soda. The mixture will get bubbly and lighten.

Drizzle the mixture over the popped corn, stirring to coat. Roll down the top of the bag and shake well, then microwave in bag for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir or shake again, return the bag to the microwave and nuke it for another 1 1/2 minutes. Cut open the bag carefully, and spread the corn out on the bag to cool. Store in a tightly covered container.

You could add peanuts to this and make a great cracker-jack type snack!
