Mmmmm mmmmm mmmm. Popcorn.
We love popcorn over here. So much so that we bought a big popcorn maker to pop our own popcorn. And let me tell you, it’s so much better than bagged popcorn. So much better. Plus we can make as much as we want and not have to pop a billion bags of popcorn to satisfy all our popcorn wants/needs.
Here’s our pretty popcorn maker.
Some day we’ll probably upgrade to a bigger one. This one, at least ours, always gets stuck while popping the popcorn and that limits how much popcorn we can put in there. We’re supposed to be able to put 1/3 cup of the kernels in there but we have to put less than that. Oh well, until we get a bigger one, this will have to do.
The first time we made this popcorn, I was really nervous because I’ve never made anything like this before and we were making it to bring to a friend’s house for a get together. But it turned out fantastic, there was nothing left when we went home that night.
Basically with this recipe, you make some popcorn.
Make up some caramel saucey stuff, which consists of butta, brown sugar and corn syrup.
Add in some salt, baking soda and vanilla before you add in the popcorn.
My pops (aka my dad) went to Arizona recently to visit some friends of his who just happen to be my godparents. He went into Mexico too to have a little fun and brought back some real vanilla for me, because he knows I like to do a lot of baking.
After you’ve got that all mixed up. Toss in your 12 cups of popped popcorn, spread it on a baking sheet and toss it in the oven for about 15 minutes. Let it cool and enjoy!
You don’t know how hard it was not to eat all of this.
It’s so addicting and so delicious!!
I think next time I’m going to try throwing some peanuts in there to give it even more crunch to it.
