Caramel Apple Popcorn
This easy caramel apple popcorn is a great after school treat in Autumn or anytime of year. With little man starting school yesterday, I wanted to make a simple and quick after school treat to celebrate his big day. The boys loved it and I fear that they will be expecting it on a more regular basis.
You will need:
1/2 cup of popping corn
1 packet of apple crisps ( I used Kiddylicious apple crisps 12g)
A couple of pieces of fudge
2 tablespoons of golden caster sugar
Start by making the popcorn, either in a machine if you have one or a lidded saucepan.
Line a baking tray with foil and place the popcorn over it.
Chop the fudge into small chunks and sprinkle this over the popcorn.
Lightly crush the apple crisps and sprinkle these of the popcorn as well.
Heat the golden caster sugar in a stainless steel pan. Stir with a wooden spoon until it has caramelized.
Then pour the caramel over the popcorn and allow to cool.
Be careful to make sure it cools properly as the caramel is really hot and you will burn your tongue if you test it too early. I have learnt my lesson!
So whether you are planning a film night with the kids snuggled under blankets or a bonfire night party, this caramel apple popcorn is a real winner.
