How To Make

caramel corn on baking sheet

Preheat your oven to 225 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and spritz with non-stick cooking spray. Divide popcorn between the two baking sheets.

In a medium to large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat, stirring to avoid browning. Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt to the butter.

Bring the syrup to a boil and then reduce the temperature allowing the syrup to boil for about 3 minutes or until a candy thermometer reaches soft-ball stage (238 degrees.) A candy thermometer is a must for this recipe.

Whisk in the vanilla and baking soda. This will cause a reaction that makes the syrup bubble up. Don’t panic!

Pour caramel over the popcorn, tossing to coat thoroughly.

Chocolate drizzled caramel corn with chocolate bits.

Once your popcorn is coated, bake for 40 minutes, tossing halfway.

Remove the popcorn from the oven and lift popcorn from baking sheets using the parchment paper and allow to cool completely.

Once the popcorn is cooled, drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with Rolo candies.

Allow the chocolate to set completely before packaging or serving.
