Quick Homemade Caramelized Popcorns
I love anything homemade and that includes my easy quick homemade caramelized popcorns. Popcorns are one my favourite go to snacks. You pop them in your cooker/sufuria, enjoy the sound of them popping and in minutes they are ready to be consumed. Taking them a notch higher is what I enjoy. We never settle for basic. That’s where my homemade caramelized popcorns carry the day. They make for a perfect snack to indulge in on weekends, when you can sit back, relax and enjoy a movie. the popcorns really do come in handy.
You will be surprised that, the same caramelized popcorns you purchase in shops at a high price is something you can make at home at an affordable price. You won’t need lots of ingredients. Only five main ingredients plus your popcorn kernels(raw popcorns). In minutes you have the homemade caramelized popcorns. Best believe that it takes not more than 15 minutes to prepare.
Let’s get down to how you can prepare and enjoy it at the comfort of your house.
- 1/3 Cup of Cooking Oil
- I Cup Popcorn Kernels (raw popcorns)
- 1/3 Cup of Sugar (Fine Sugar Particles would be more preferable)
- 1/2 tsp of Butter/Margarine
- A Pinch of Salt
- 1 tsp Baking Soda (Bicarbonate of Soda)
In a sufuria/cooking pot add in oil and heat it up for a few seconds.
Add in the popcorns, cover and let them pop.
Once all have popped, transfer the popcorns into a different bowl.
In the same sufuria/cooking pot, add in the sugar and salt and heat it on very low heat. Do Not stir.
Immediately the sugar particles begin melting and browning add the butter and stir. (Do this immediately the first melting & browning occurs.
Then add in the baking soda as you keep on stirring until all sugar particles have melted and caramelized.
Once all sugar particles melt, add the popcorns in and mix with the caramelized sauce.
Finally remove and set the caramelized popcorns on a tray/bowl ready for serving.
1.Ensure you keep stirring once you add the butter to prevent stickiness. This is because caramelized sugar is sticky in nature.
2. Once the popcorns are well coated with the caramelized sauce, transfer immediately while still hot. This will also help prevent them from sticking onto the sufuria.
In minutes you have your homemade caramelized popcorns. This is a snack you can enjoy at all times. Additionally, you can have it as you bond with the rest of your family members over a movie. To view the full video, check it out on my Instagram account.
