We are going to teach you how to make the perfect caramel popcorn at the comfort of your home without the need to own a popcorn machine or to hire a popcorn machine rental.
How to make Sweet Caramel Popcorn
Making popcorn at home is a simple and convenient task that you can do on your stovetop.
Caramel Popcorn Recipe Ingredients
2 tablespoons coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil or butter
1/4 tsp salt
50grams of high quality popcorn kernels
200grams cup sugar
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tbsp vanilla essence
Tips to note when making Popcorn on the Stovetop
1.) Make use of a good, heavy-bottomed pot. Cheap pots do not evenly distribute heat evenly resulting in hot spots that burn the popcorn.
2.) Don't turn up the heat too much. It's far too easy to burn oil at temperatures above medium, and if you catch even a whiff of smoke coming from the pot, your popcorn will taste burned.
3.) To test the temperature, start with two popcorn kernels. When those pop, your oil is ready. Remove the pot from the heat for 1 minute after adding the remaining kernels. This prepares the popcorn for popping without causing the oil to burn.
4.) While the popcorn is popping, gently tilt the lid. This prevents the popcorn from steaming and losing crispness in the pot. If the popcorn begins to overflow the pot, simply remove the lid and pour the excess popcorn into a bowl. Replace the lid and return the popcorn to the heat until it stops popping.
Different types of Popcorn flavors for the Children
White or Milk Chocolate Popcorns - with the popped popcorn left aside. Melt the white or milk chocolate (how to melt chocolate) pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn and start mixing. Make sure the popcorn is completely covered in chocolate before placing it in the fridge to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
