so halloween is here. its not as big as back home but its certainly being celebrated. but in this apartment its not likely that we would get tricker/treaters. but rather than mope blaise had an amazing idea, lets make caramel corn.
about 4 onces of cream (15% works best)
about 2 cups of brown sugar
a bit less than 1/4 cup of butter
well actually it was toffee corn because of the cream. we used a combo of a few recipes. essentially you heat butter,cream and sugar on the stove until you get a nice, rich, boiling syrup (slow boil btw, you don't want it to burn).
you have your popcorn in a tray, one bag of natural microwave popcorn and we added 2 cups of pecans cause blaise loves them.
you pour the syrup all over the popcorn and then stir it as best you can so it all gets coated.
next you cook it in the oven for 15 minutes, take it out stir it, put it back in (repeat twice).
at the end you have delicious golden toffee corn
NOTE: this stuff goes kind of 'damp' if not stored in an airtight container. its still good but not as crunchy if it gets 'damp'.
