Talia made this for my birthday, and I can attest to its deliciousness. The melted snickers bars takes caramel popcorn to that whole ‘nother level.
Talia had seen this recipe http://cookiesandcups.com/snickers-popcorn/ and wanted to make an NZ friendly version, as we don’t have corn syrup. She messed with the ingredients and quantities a bit and voila! This stuff is so good.
2 x microwave bags of natural popcorn
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup golden syrup
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 bag of mini snickers bars (or 2 bags if you want it really full of snicker goodness)
Pop the popcorn according to directions on the packs. Spread in a layer on a paper lined baking tray. Melt the butter, brown sugar and golden syrup together. Let boil for 5 minutes. Add baking soda – it will bubble up kinda like hokey pokey. Pour over the popcorn and stir it through until all the popcorn is evenly coated. ***Don’t try and eat it now even though you’ll be tempted to… your teeth will literally stick together. I tried, it hurts.
Bake at 100C for 45mins, stirring every 15 minutes. While its baking, chop up the snickers bars roughly. Add to the popcorn mix and stir through then bake for about 5-10mins or until the snickers and popcorn have stuck together.
Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container. >> Click through for more pics, mmmmm
