I came across this recipe and since I am such a huge fan of caramel popcorn, I decided it was worth a try. It sounded so easy. My biggest concern was whether it would be gooey and chewy --- I don't like the crunchy caramel corn. Oh boy was it gooey!! And it stayed gooey for days (I had forgotten about it and found some several days later that was still just as gooey). This recipe is so much easier than other caramel corn so I think it will become our favorite!!
1 bag microwave popcorn (or 1/3 c. unpopped corn, popped)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
8-10 big marshmallows
Pop the popcorn and remove all of the obnoxious unpopped kernals. Microwave the butter, sugar, and marshmallows until melted (I started with 1 minute and found it wasn't completely melted, so probably did 20-30 more seconds). Stir to make a caramel goo. Pour the goo over the popcorn and stir to coat the popcorn.
Try to not eat it all in one sitting!!
