Halloween Caramel Candy Corn Popcorn for EF On The Go Vlog!

I’m working with Education First on a series of videos for their brand new ON THE GO with EF YouTube Channel! Here in the very first episode where I show you a really cool Halloween treat, featuring a classic Halloween candy: Caramel Candy Corn Popcorn… yes, you heard right! And since EF is the premiere language learning school, they include some excellent vocabulary words worth knowing for the Halloween season…

You’ll need:

  • About 12 handfuls popped corn
  • 440g (1 c.) packed brown sugar
  • 164 g (1/2 c.) light syrup
  • 114g (1/2 c.) butter
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • As much candy corn (or other candy) as you like!

How to:

The main thing you have to do is make the caramel sauce… which is a sauce made of caramelized sugar…. so let’s go for it!

In a pot, combine butter, salt, syrup, and brown sugar. Stir constantly until it starts to boil. Then, let it boil without stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in baking soda. Then simply mix your newly cooked caramel sauce with the popcorn.

Next, spread out the caramel popcorn on a baking tray, and bake in the oven at 120 degrees C. for about 15 minutes.

Then, go ahead and give it a mix to make sure all the popcorn gets some oozy gooey caramel action. Put it back into the oven for about 10 more minutes.

In the meantime, I’m going to grab my candy corn… aren’t they cute? This candy is a classic and special to Halloween.

As soon as you take the popcorn out the oven, sprinkle in your candy corn while it’s still warm… this way the candy will stick to the popcorn and make some Halloween happiness! (another “corny” joke, I know!)

Then let the popcorn cool down until the caramel gets nice a crunchy. MMMMM!
