Salted Caramel Popcorn. A little sweet, a little salty, and very crunchy. The easiest and best snack for the Fall!
Happy First Day of Fall, everyone!
Wait, why is it 90 degrees outside right now?
Oh yeah, that’s right, Miami didn’t get the memo that it’s a new season. When you live in Miami, you really don’t “feel” seasons. Maybe northern Florida does but South Florida, for the most part, is probably at the beach right now.
So what do you do in this case?
Well, you pretend!
You lie to yourself!
You adorn your house with all your Fall decorations!
Take out your Fall clothing even if you’ll only wear it 4 times in the next 6 months.
You go to Starbucks and have a Pumpkin Spice Latte. (If you’re into that kind of stuff, I’m not a pumpkin fan. I KNOW. I’m so not basic, I’m sorry! Don’t hate me.)
You binge watch on When Harry Met Sally…
When Harry Met Sally.
The movie with the fake orgasm scene, that makes you want to move to NY, and makes you want to fall in love. I mean the movie is 20+ years old and it’s still relatable! When Harry said “guys and girls can’t be friends”, I totally agreed with him. Truer words have never been spoken. Someone always falls for the other! Love is a crazy thing.
For some reason, this movie always reminds me of the Fall season.
You know what also reminds me of Fall? Two words: SALTED. CARAMEL.
Dear pumpkin spice, I’m not that into you because I’m in love with salted caramel.
I just can’t get enough. I already made Salted Caramel Skillet S’mores which were AH-MAZ-ING. Next on the list is Salted Caramel Popcorn.
What better way to pretend that it’s Fall and binge watch on movies than with a big bowl of Salted Caramel Popcorn!
Super easy to make, and lots of salty, sweet, crunchiness.
Hope you make it and you LOVE it!
What are your favorite movies to binge watch on while eating popcorn?My favorite crunchy Fall treat is Salted Caramel Popcorn!Click To Tweet
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons salted butter cut up into 6 pieces
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add popcorn kernels, cover and wait until kernels have popped. Once the popcorn is popped, pour it into a bowl and set aside.
In a saucepan, heat sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly. Sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a thick brown, amber-colored liquid as you continue to stir. Be careful not to burn it.
Once sugar is completely melted, immediately add the butter. The caramel will bubble rapidly when the butter is added. Be careful.
Stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely melted, about 2-3 minutes.
Very slowly, drizzle in the heavy cream while stirring. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute. It will rise in the pan as it boils.
Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon of salt.
Immediately, pour the caramel in batches onto the popcorn, stirring the popcorn after pouring the caramel in each time. Let cool slightly and serve.
