crafting for kids: homemade carmel corn

Madolyn Oliver is back today with kid/teen friendly recipe and this one is and this one is delicious (I've already made a batch a it's a hit!

Every year around on Thanksgiving night we make our homemade caramel corn. We bring out the big pot, all the ingredients and we get together as a family and make caramel corn. We crank up the Christmas music, and carry out our yearly tradition. Making our caramel corn is always fun for me. I love how the sweet aroma fills the house,  how easy and fun it is to make, and most of all I love eating it! 

Caramel Corn Ingredients 

1 C sugar
1 C dark brown sugar (packed)
1 C butter
1 C light corn syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1-2 cups of popcorn to be popped.  We use a popper with coconut oil.  

Put some sheets of foil on your counter to cover a space about 30" x 30" and pray the foil with cooking spray. If you don’t spray it you will have all of the yummy caramel sticking to the foil.

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 about 245 degrees on a candy thermometer.

Pour over the popcorn and combine with a LONG wooden spoon so you don't burn your hands. Ask an adult to help you with this part so you don’t burn yourself. The caramel will be really hot!

Let it cool for 10-15 minutes (if you can wait that long) and enjoy!  This is so good!

So fun! Another tip I found when I made homemade caramel corn is to put the popcorn and hot ingredients all into a brown paper like grocery bag! Then shake really well and that's it! It coats the popcorn so well!
