It’s maybe my favorite kind of caramel corn: sweet, a little salty, and a little (or a lot) hot.
- 1 bag of Kraft caramels, unwrapped
- 3 Tbs butter
- 1 Tbs butter
- 2 Tbs of Sriracha or more to taste (if adding more, reduce water slightly)
- 10 cups popcorn (Do everyone a favor and make sure it doesn’t include any unpopped kernals)
You can’t see what makes this special, but you’ll be able to taste it.
Heat oven to 300. Grease a roasting pan.
Add caramels, butter, water, and Sriracha in a Dutch oven or a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Melt over medium-low heat.
If in a Dutch oven, add 10 c. popcorn; if in a saucepan, pour caramel mixture over popcorn in a large bowl.
Pour popcorn into greased pan. Place in oven for 15 minutes, then stir and bake for another 5-10 minutes, checking regularly.
Place on wax paper or parchment paper to cool.
