    Don’t like boiling the caramel for caramel popcorn? Then try this super easy and foolproof oven method… But be careful; it’s really addictive!

    For popcorn:
    1/2 cup (125 mL) popcorn kernels
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) butter

    For Caramel:
    1/4 cup (50 mL) butter
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) corn syrup -or- molasses
    4 Tbsp (60 mL) brown sugar
    1/3 cup (75 mL) sugar
    pinch of salt

    Pre-heat oven to 300ºF (150ºC)
    Pop popcorn, by melting butter in a pot over med-high heat. Pour in popcorn kernels, cover with lid and shake until there are 5-6 seconds between pops.

    Place all remaining ingredients in a small pot; gently heat and stir until all ingredients have melted together. (don’t boil!)
    Pour caramel over popped corn and stir to coat.
    Pour popcorn onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for 15-20 minutes.
    Allow to cool before eating.
