Popcorn Time! Sriracha Caramel Corn

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.
