- Persons: 4
- Difficulty: Easy
- 10 cups air-popped popcorn
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1/8 tbsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 tbsp salt
- 1/2 tbsp baking soda
Preheat the oven to 200°F (93°C). Spread the popcorn out onto 2 large baking sheets. Set aside.
Combine the sugar, corn syrup, butter, cream of tartar, and salt in a medium saucepan over a medium-high heat.
Stir constantly and bring to a boil for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and quickly stir in the baking soda.
Pour the caramel over the popcorn and stir gently until all the kernels are coated.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes. Allow to cool on the pan and break apart large clusters if desired. Cover the popcorn tightly once cooled.
