Boy-O-Boy Caramel Corn

THE CARAMEL CORN SHOPPE.   As a kid there was nothing like a trip to NorthTown Center - our first urban shopping center, built in the 1950's. Most notable - a trip to The Caramel Corn Shoppe, serving hot, fresh popcorn, licorice and the grand daddy of them all - Caramel Corn. 


Years later, and many hot air corn poppers as well, I've never once made this from scratch. Too complicated I thought. Boy-O-Boy was I mistaken. A simple caramel sauce is made from butter, brown sugar and corn syrup. Poured over fresh popped popcorn and sprinkled with salted peanuts, this childhood treat is then oven and cooled. Leave it to BAKED to elevate this simple treat - with a drizzling of melted chocolate (milk and semi-sweet). As if it weren't a favorite already.

Grab the recipe and view all the other BAKED CARAMEL POPCORN  over at BAKED SUNDAY MORNINGS.

Yum! this looks fabulous, I don't think I could stop eating though till it was gone, this could be very dangerous!

A perfect way to serve this, Mike. It looks beautiful! Making this was also a trip down memory land, but a totally different one for me. The Caramel Corn Shoppe sounds delightful!

I finally got this book. I've made one thing to great effect but this will probably be number 2. Looks like it would make a great gift and when I do sweets, I like to give them away. These would be difficult to stop eating once I started.
