Cinnamon Bun Popcorn

Next on my list to do before I left for Boston was to make a treat to take with me.  I love to make caramel corn it's easy and always a hit.  I of course can't make the same type each time, so I found a recipe on Food.com for Cinnamon Bun Popcorn.

Ingredients:

12 cups popped popcorn (about 1/2 cup kernels or 2 bags of microwave popcorn)
cup pecan halves, roughly chopped
cup brown sugar
teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup real butter (= 1 stick)
teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pieces white almond bark or pieces white chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Pop your popcorn according to directions. Be sure and check for any UN-popped kernels, those are the WORST to bite into unexpectedly.

Place popcorn and chopped pecans in a large bowl and set aside.

Combine brown sugar and cinnamon, butter and karo in a medium sized pan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to rolling boil. Remove from heat and add your vanilla and baking soda. The baking soda will make your caramel mixture foam up and rise, don't be alarmed, it's suppose to (this is why you need to use a tall sided pot if you have one).

Pour your caramel mixture over your popcorn and pecans and stir well.

Spread popcorn mixture onto a foil-lined cookie sheet. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Stir every 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool down. Break into bite size pieces. Store in an air tight container.

Alexis notes:  I made blow your mind microwave popcorn, that way you're popping your own popcorn.  I had some of my homemade butter left over and used that. I also used Wilton Melts in bright white to drizzle over the done popcorn.

Any treats planned to make?

Thanks for Stopping by!
