This is great! I doubled the whole recipe (except the butter- I only used 1/2 cup) and thought that the amount of caramel/chocolate/nuts called for was perfect; all the kernels were covered pretty well. Based on other recipes, one cup of popcorn= one serving, so I used 8 cups of stove-popped popcorn and used the same stockpot to make and mix everything. I think it would have helped if I had kept the popcorn warm in the oven before mixing it- by the time I got to the chocolate and peanuts, the caramel was sticking. I baked in two deep aluminum roasting pans. This made FAR more than eight servings, more like 16!
I followed this recipe fairly strictly, except I used 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) rather than 2 sticks. I ran out of brown sugar so I used about 1/2 cup brown sugar , 1/2 cup regular white sugar, and it seemed to be no different. Go sparingly on the chocolate chips---I "eyeballed" it and ended up making the popcorn a little bit too chocolatey, and overcoming some of the caramel taste. Also, my popcorn started to burn after 45 minutes, so I didn't bake it the full hour.
An addicting, delicious recipe. I made it using 1 cup of popcorn seeds that I microwave-popped. Hint: REMOVE UNPOPPED KERNELS! Keep the roasting pan in the oven while melting the caramel sauce, then take it out and add the popped corn and sauce, this makes it easier to coat the popcorn evenly. Enjoy!
This recipe is so so Good .I remember tasting this at a farmer market.And i said i have to find a similar recipe to this Thanks to you i can have to delicious sweet craving treat all the time.I just added pecans to this as well.Thanks
This popcorn tastes fine, but the chocolate chips do not melt (they scorch instead). I would follow the recipe as is next time, but would melt and drizzle the chocolate at the end. I only baked for 30 minutes because of the chocolate scorching. I've used another caramel/chocolate popcorn recipe from this site, and I think I prefer it with the addition of the almonds and coconut.
Updated to add: I took the leftovers to work and my coworkers devoured it.
Great recipe. I followed exactly, but would do as another review and double the caramel. The popcorn was not as well coated as I would like. Will try again as it had a great taste!!
Absolutely delicious! I didn't have to constantly stir it because it didn't stick to the pan. I used whole almonds for a nuttier crunch and it was great! I had one problem--the nuts and chocolate didn't stick so well. I must have got so excited about stirring the caramel evenly into the popcorn I was letting it cool.
Out of this World Yummy! BEWARE! You won't be able to stop eating them once you start. LOL -I altered the recipe and used peanuts instead of almonds. I used plain kernals in the microwave in a paper bag instead of microwave popcorn and made two large bowls of popcorn. I doubled the recipe for the carmel mixture and added more nuts and chocolate. My party guests ate the whole thing. I may make it again this holiday for Christmas presents.
