  • 1/3 cup popcorn

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, light or dark

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda

Follow manufacturer's instructions for popping popcorn in the Orville Redenbacher’s® Caramel Corn Maker by Presto. Discard any unpopped kernels; set aside popped corn in separate bowl. Allow popping/mixing bowl to cool for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove excess oil and hulls from base with a paper towel. Place popping/mixing bowl onto base and remove cover.

Combine butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup in the popping/mixing base. Plug the base into an electrical outlet and heat mixture. Stir continuously with a non-metallic spoon until butter is melted and bubbles begin appearing on the surface of the mixture. Boil without stirring for 1 minute.

Unplug and stir in baking soda. This will cause the mixture to foam. Pour popped corn into the bowl and begin stirring until popcorn is evenly coated with caramel sauce.

Pour the coated popcorn onto a rimmed cookie sheet and separate kernels while corn is still warm. Allow to cool completely.
