Homemade Caramel Popcorn 爆玉米花

Before the party, i checked with my son what he would like to have in his Birthday party. He requested this caramel popcorn. When I making this popcorn, remind me of an invitation came to me few years back as to invite me to appear in a TV morning program to teach how to make popcorn. I was shy at that time, so I turn down the invitation ^_^.


 


 
I still refer to the old recipe, but this time I reduced water as I found the caramel sauce was a bit watery 


 
Not the first time doing popcorn, but i still feel excited to see this popcorn after opened the lid.




It is not difficult to make popcorn at home, but we just need some time to bake the popcorn as to let them stay crispy..


Homemade Caramel Popcorn 爆玉米花 

300g Corn Kernels
6 tbsp corn oil 

300g sugar
110g butter (salted)
150ml water 

To pop corn kernels
1. Pour corn oil into a wok, coat entirely the wok.
2. Heat oil over medium flame.
3. Add in corn kernels, stir fry to mix well till corn kernels start to expand.
4. Once you see it start to pop, immediately over the wok with lid, you start to hear popping sound.
5. From time to time, slowly move the wok to keep the popcorn from burning in spots.
5. When the popping slows down to the point that you don’t hear much pop, off the flame.
6. Take off the lid, and pour popcorn into large bowl, remove unpopped kernels.
7. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet and set aside. 

To make caramel popcorn
1. Add sugar in a clean wok/saucepan over medium flame, cook till melted and become syrup.
2. Add in butter and water, keep stirring till become slightly thick caramel.
3. Let the syrup cool slightly, then drizzle over the popcorn. Toss the popcorn carefully using spoons.
4. Bake at preheated oven at 150c for 30-45mins, stir them once.
5. Once done, remove from oven, stir the popcorn, and in airtight containers once cooled down.

Sonia has been so popular for a long time! We also like to eat popcorns but in here, we normally see savoury version, not the sweet one. I actually like the sweet one better.

How delicious! We love popcorn and the flavors you use are wonderful! I think you should call the TV station and ask to go back on - you would be doing everyone a flavor!!

My mum used to make popcorn by using her pressure cooker. I don't even know that we can make it by wok.
I love to have my popcorn fully coated with caramel! But it is so saddening that everytime when I get my popcorn in cinema counter, I will definitely get most of the popcorn tasteless. Oh man, I'm not a health conscious gal, so pls, pls give me lotsa caramel~~
