How To Make soft caramel popcorn

  • 1
    Pop the popcorn. Pour into a bowl. Set aside. --- In a large saucepan heat the butter over medium-low heat until melted; add the brown sugar and let cook for only 30 seconds,stirring continuously. (The sugar won't be dissolved -that the way it should look- cooking longer will crystallize the sugar.
