yummy Recipe: Caramel Popcorn Balls

Caramel Popcorn Balls

Makes 50

2 tablespoons oil
½ cup popping corn
170 g (6 oz/ ¾ cup) caster sugar
80 g (2¾ oz) unsalted butter
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons cream


Method:
1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the corn and cover with lid. Cook for 5 minutes or until the popping stops, shaking the pan occasionally. Tip the popcorn into a big bowl.

2. Put the sugar, butter, honey and cream in a small saucepan. Stir over medium heat, without boiling, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil, without stirring, for 5 minutes.

3. Pour the caramel over the popcorn and mix together. Leave to cool a little, then rub some oil over your hands and mould the popcorn into small balls. Put on a wire rack to set.


Note: When you pour the caramel over the popcorn, mix it together before it goes hard. Don’t wait; you need to mix it as soon as you pour it over the popcorn. Then once you’ve mixed it, leave it for around 3 minutes and then make the balls.

u.noaht: Why do you need corn kernels? You need popping corn. Corn kernels is the actual yellow corn that you can eat with a spoon from the tin. (oh yum).

Thank you people, I made this and I burnt the caramel the first time so I had to make it again. I really need to learn to cook... I love cooking and I'm trying to find yummy recipes to make. Yumyum.
