Caramel popcorn is a wonderful combination of sweet and salty. This recipe can be customized by adding any combination of fruit nuts chocolates or candies that you like. It makes a great gift as well and can be wrapped up in cellophane as I've shown below.
Make the caramel and boil until it reaches soft ball stage.
Mix the popcorn with nuts and dried fruits before pouring the caramel over it.
1 cup butter
1 1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
12 cups popped popcorn
1 1/2 - 2 cup nuts (or dried fruits, chocolate chips etc)
Throwback Thursday to these pinwheels- please excuse the photo quality as it was taken with a really old cellphone and put through some extreme filters. These can be made using pastry dough or croissant dough I used one packet of pre-made Croissant Dough. One packet made 12 of these pinwheels, they look really pretty and taste great warm or cold. If you like a little bit more spice add 1 tsp of red chili flakes.

I love to eat! I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past decade. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
