The other day, a restaurant gave me a bag of caramel popcorn as a "Thank You for Dining With Us" gift. It was delicious! Sweet, buttery, salty, with just the right amount of somewhat chewy caramel on crisp popcorn. Any idea how I would make this? I can't seen to find any reliable recipe online. Are we talking soft ball stage caramel here people? I'm only slightly experienced with candy making, but I'm willing to experiment!
I am NOT looking for Cracker Jack-style dark, crisp caramel, but rather a light, butter caramel that is sort of sprinkled over the popcorn just enough so some of the pieces stick together and form little balls.
Thanks in advance!!
