I refused to bake Christmas goodies this year. Just didn't think I was strong enough yet for the temptation.
I have been thinking of doing this recipe to surprise my family for a family movie night Friday. I'm reading your posts to glean any tips. Thanks!!
Proverbs 3: 5-8 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. "
I made three batches of the caramel popcorn this weekend and froze it in buckets. It's an excellent recipe, especially when you figure out your preferred amount of popcorn to use. I actually didn't have any problems with sticking, the pan came clean very easily. I'm curious if anyone has tried doubling the recipe and if so whether you double the salt or use less. I plan on using it in an upcoming bake sale at work.
You can make "air popped" popcorn in the microwave (albeit in smaller batches). Just put about 4 Tablespoons popcorn in a brown lunch bag, fold over the top of the bag a couple of times and put it in the microwave. I set my timer for 3 minutes, but I usually take it out with about 50 seconds left--it depends on your microwave.
It's much better than "microwave" popcorn--no nasty chemicals and MUCH cheaper!
I made the caramel popcorn last night, yum! We had a youth group movie night at my house and made this for one of the snacks. Everyone loved it! The only thing that I will do differently next time is to use parchment paper. Even with the cooking spray it really stuck to the pan and was a little hard to get off, ended up with a lot of little crumblies. Hubby cleaned the pan so that was awesome!
