Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Microwave Caramel Corn 2 (640x480)

This is a dangerous recipe because it is so quick and easy. I find that once I open a can of sweetened condensed milk that I’m more likely to make this recipe several times over a week or so to use it up.  No one complains in my house when I do. My boys love this stuff!

As written, this recipe is simple. Feel free to jazz up your caramel popcorn. You could add nuts, pretzels, dried fruit, or various cereals (like Chex or Cheerios).

Microwave Caramel Corn (640x480)

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

8 cups air-popped popcorn
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 tablespoon corn syrup
2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk

Line a cookie sheet with foil or waxed paper. Set aside.

Place popcorn in a large microwavable bowl.

In a small microwavable bowl, microwave the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk on high in 30 second intervals until mixture is boiling. This takes about a minute. Pour the hot mixture over the popcorn and stir to coat.

Microwave the popcorn on high for 3 minutes in 1 minute intervals, stirring well each minute. Spread the caramel popcorn onto the foil or waxed paper. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
