Baked Caramel Popcorn

6- Caramel PopcornPin


Today, the climate is amazing. While the kids were gone and I was washing their glasses, I peeped out of the kitchen window Β to see that it was so dark, that I doubted for a moment whether it was actually time for them to go to school and time for me to leave home! πŸ˜‰ It was so dark at 6:30 am, so unlike yesterday… Moving out, I see the skies are totally overcast and it had drizzled. As this post goes live, it is totally looking dark outside with really heavy clouds, ready to pour down any moment. I wouldn’t really mind the beautiful weather, but I sincerely hope that I don’t have to go through the same bout of fever for the whole family. InShaAllah, while hoping for the best, thought I must share this one… πŸ™‚





I have already shared the basic popcorn post here. This is just a way of adding some jazz to your popcorn. The first time I had caramel popcorn was at the Gormet Popcorn stall at Dubai Mall. They do charge a bomb for it, but it just disppeared in no time! When I saw this recipe here, I had to make it somehow. With the large quantity of popcorn that I had already made, I took out some and made this absolutely delicious variation. Once it was done, I was sad that it was finished! Hmm… got to make this again soon, for sure! The baking makes the popcorn more crunchy on the outside and as you sink your teeth in, the juicy caramel just sets in! Yum… Without tempting you all much, off to the recipe…

  8. Wow! I love caramel popcorns! I have had it many times earlier in Dubai when we used to go for movies. They do charge a bomb for a small pack but in the UK they are easily available in supermarkets for a pound which is AED 6 and its a good sized pack.

    I love caramel popcorn. Yep! They are too expensive in malls πŸ™

    Now I can make them myself. Thanks.

    I always thought caramel is poured after poping the corn. This baked version shows a different picture.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Yes Haya, the caramel is poured on popped corn and mixed well, then it is baked… When baked, it will nicely stick onto the popcorn and give it a nice crunch… thanks a lot for coming by… πŸ™‚
