● 1/4 teaspoon salt

Stage 1: Preheat the stove to 200 degrees F. Line a huge 15 x 21 inches jam move skillet with foil (or utilize a huge aluminum turkey cooking container). Shower gently with non-stick cooking splash. Add popcorn to skillet in an even layer and spot in the broiler to warm (it’s alright if the stove isn’t right at 200 yet – caramel spreads a lot simpler over warm popcorn). 

Stage 2: Melt margarine in an enormous pan over medium warmth. When liquefied, mix in earthy colored sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Race until sugar breaks down. 

Stage 3: Bring to a bubble over medium warmth, blending at times. When the caramel starts to delicately bubble, bubble for 2-3 minutes blending continually (it will bubble a considerable amount, simply begin timing when it starts to tenderly bubble). 

Stage 4: Remove from the warmth, and mix in the heating pop and vanilla (it will bubble a great deal). Mix until the shading is uniform.

Some things to Consider

● Effectively Remove Popcorn Kernels: Pour your popped popcorn over a cooling rack – the pieces will fall through and your popcorn will remain on the rack – SO a lot simpler than selecting singular portions. 

● Silicon Spatula: Use a silicon spatula to do all your mixing rather than a wooden spoon. Silicon spatulas are normally non-stick, exceptionally heat-safe, and clean without any problem. 

● Huge Skillet: Take care you utilize an enormous skillet rather than a little pan to make the caramel in light of the fact that once you include the heating pop, the blend froths fiercely and increments essentially in volume. 

● Non-stick Skillet: A non-stick dish will keep your caramel from consuming (or help) and is a breeze to clean. Any staying caramel will come right of a non-stick skillet – definitely no splashing required! Simply trust that the caramel will solidify and afterward it will chip directly off. 

● Step by step instructions to Clean Traditional Skillet: If you don’t have a non-stick skillet at that point add some water to your container and bring to a stew. This will mellow and extricate any staying caramel. 

● Huge Roasting Pan. For simple clean-up or on the off chance that you don’t have a simmering container, utilize an enormous turkey cooking skillet. You can get this at the Dollar Store and for just a dollar, it’s expendable! This container likewise has high sides which make it simpler to hurl the popcorn and caramel together. 

● Cook pretty much: The heating time will differ contingent upon individual inclination. On the off chance that you like your Caramel Popcorn crispier, cook longer on the off chance that you like it chewier, cook for less time. 

● Continue Stirring. After the popcorn has come out of the broiler and as yet cooling, mix it 2-3 times. This will help separate the large clusters.
