Salted Caramel Popcorn

Well I've been horridly neglectful of my blog lately, but I'm turning over a new leaf.  Once a day, new habit to form :)

In a sort of reverse honor of the "Game on" inspiration for my new habit, here is my newly developed Salted Caramel Popcorn recipe.

    8oz Real Butter
    1.5lbs Light Brown Sugar
    1/4 cup 2% Milk
    1-3.5oz bag Microwave Popcorn, your favorite variety will do
    Sea Salt

Butter a sheet of parchment paper and sprinkle with sea salt, set aside.  In a medium saucepan, melt butter.  Add brown sugar and bring to a boil.  While waiting for it to come to a boil, pop corn, and put off to the side in a large bowl.  Once butter and sugar mixture is boiling, add milk.  Boil until caramel hits soft ball stage.  Mixing after each addition, pour caramel over popcorn in small amounts until all popcorn is evenly coated.  Spread popcorn over buttered and salted parchment paper in a thin, even layer.  Let come to room temperature and ENJOY!

  Another installment coming tomorrow :)
