I have been dying to make some sort of smore inspired caramel corn for several months now. I finally had the time to develop this great recipe:
1 batch of air popped pop corn (or 2 bags of microwave popcorn)
place the popcorn in a greased 9x13 or larger pan and put it into the oven at 220 while you make the caramel
For the caramel:
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tbsp molasses
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix all of the ingredients together and bring to a boil over medium heat in a very heavy pan.
Stir the caramel sauce around until you have all of your warmed popcorn coated.
While your caramel corn is cooking, you should cut up 1 bag of mini candy bars into thirds. You could use chocolate chips, but I love the look and taste of the candy bars. Once the caramel corn is totally cool, you can mix in 2 cups of mini marshmallows and the candy bars. You could also add some mini graham crackers like teddy grahams, but the caramel has a flavor similar to a graham cracker.
