How To Make betty's easy caramel popcorn

  • 1
    Place the popcorn in a large bowl. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  • 2
    Melt the butter in a heavy based medium sized saucepan over a medium heat. Add the sugars, honey/syrup and vanilla. Bring to the boil over a medium heat and stir often. It will turn golden caramel and become very "frothy".
  • 3
    Pour over the popcorn and stir like mad! You're going to have to move fast. Pour the caramel coated popcorn onto the lined baking tray and flatten slightly with the spoon. Leave to cool. Best eaten the day of preparation.
