OK...before you see the weirdest photo of me I would like to explain.
I don't know if it will do any good but I want to try!
Last year when I went to Brave Girl Camp they made the most awesome caramel corn.
I made it a few times around Christmas and everyone LOVED it.
In fact, no one could stop eating it once it was put out.
It may be in fact...sugar crack!
So, when Kathy was going to make it again for this last camp I was the first to run up and make a fool of myself.
Lucky for me my friend Lara was right there to capture the caramel corn love.
So, if you would also like to eat an obscene amounts of sugar and calories I wanted to give you the recipe.
The World's Best Caramel Corn
1 C sugar
1 C dark brown sugar (packed)
1 C butter
1 C light corn syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 - 4 bags buttered, salted microwave popcorn (we use 3 bags because we like to go a little light on the popcorn and heavy on the caramel)
Put some sheets of foil on your counter to cover a space about 30" x 30" (I like to make sure there's plenty of room). Spray the foil with cooking spray.
Pop the popcorn and place in a very large bowl. Transfer by handfuls to ANOTHER very large bowl, letting the grannies drop to the bottom. (This step is critical - you don't want any grannies in your caramel corn!)
Now place the other ingredients in a large, heavy pan with high sides. Cook over med - med high heat, stirring occasionally, until the caramel almost reaches the Firm Ball stage (about 240-245 degrees on a candy thermometer). Pour over the popcorn and combine with a LONG wooden spoon so you don't burn your hands.
Pour the caramelicous goodness out onto the foil, and let it cool as long as you can stand it. Then share it with someone you love!
