Chocolate covered caramel corn is super quick and easy to make, which is a good thing because it is super quick and easy to eat!

Chocolate Covered Caramel Corn Recipe
 
You Have Been Served:
Ingredients
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¼ cup corn syrup
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp chili flakes (note 1)
  • 8 cups popped corn (note 2)
  • 1 cup nuts (note 3)
  • 2 oz good quality chocolate
  • 1 tbsp butter
Instructions
  1. bring sugar, butter and corn syrup to a boil in a large saucepan (photo 1)
  2. boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly
  3. remove from heat
  4. add baking soda, vanilla and chili flakes
  5. mixture will foam and bubble
  6. quickly stir in popcorn and nuts
  7. spread in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet (photo 2)
  8. bake in a preheated 275F oven for 25 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes
  9. remove from oven and let cool (photo 3)
  10. melt chocolate and butter together
  11. drizzle over cooled caramel corn (photo 4)
  12. when chocolate has hardened, break caramel corn into chunks and store in a cookie tin or eat immediately! (photo 5)
Notes
Note 1: chili flakes are optional but I highly recommend that you use them; they don't make the caramel corn particularly spicy but they add a smoky complexity and cut down the sweetness

Note 2: I recommend an air popper for popcorn; all the kernels will pop completely and the popcorn won't be greasy

Note 3: I recommend salted peanuts but if you don't want to use nuts, just add another cup of popcorn

This caramel corn looks delicious but I suspect it is dangerously addictive. Nice post.
