So true to word, I bring you the second recipe to try off the list of 'sweet treat crazes' for 2013. Now if you're not sure what the hell I'm on about, you can read my last blog here. And if you can't be bothered doing that, then you'll just have to take my word for it that we are working our way through the most popular sweet treats that you need to know about this year!
So for the second cab off the rank I thought I would kill two birds with one stone....Popcorn and Caramel! A double whammy! Both featured on the list of popular sweet crazes this year and really there was no surprises there. Carmel was listed specifically as 'salted caramel', not a new flavour, but definitely a popular one. And as for popcorn, well you've probably heard me yabber on about popcorn a million times this year, especially when it comes to popcorn bars. So Mr Meko and I decided to experiment a little in the kitchen last night and came up with a popcorn flavour that you may in fact develop some sort of addiction to (take that as our official warning, we've been eating it all day!). Next time you're in for a movie night, definitely give this one a try!
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
250g unsalted butter
500g brown sugar
2 tbsp water
12 x fun size Snickers
salt flakes to taste
Pop your corn kernels as per instructions on the pack and scatter on to a baking tray.
Preheat your oven to 90c.
Make caramel by combining butter, water and brown sugar in a pot over a medium heat, stirring occasionally until the mix begins to boil, thicken and is rising to 3/4 of the height of the pot.
Pour over your popcorn and toss gently to cover all the pieces. Bake in the oven for 30 mins, giving the tray a good shake and a toss every 10 mins.
Chop the snickers roughly into pieces and scatter on top of your popcorn and return to the oven for a further 10 mins until melted. Once melted, stir to combine and season with salt flakes to taste.
Serve warm or at room temp....either way be prepared to be taken to a happy place!
