Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Popcorn kernels, unpopped
  • 700 Grams Sugar
  • 228 Grams Glucose
  • 2 Cans Evaporated milk
  • 150 Grams Butter
  • 2 Grams Baking Soda
  • 4 Grams Fleur De Sol

Instructions

  • 1) Mise en place all ingredients.
  • 2) Place sugar and glucose in clean pot and place on medium high heat. Wet sugar just until it resembles wet sand and then leave alone. Clean edges of pot with a clean pastry brush. I like to to keep a cup of water at the ready to wash down the sugar crystals and prevent scorching or crystalization.
  • 3) Cook sugar mixture until deep golden and then remove from heat. Once the sugar mixture starts to turn color you can gently swirl the mixture to make sure it is caramelizing evenly.
  • 4) Pour in evaporated milk and stir until fully encorporated. You may also want to warm up your evaporated milk as well to avoid shocking the caramel. Add butter and stir. Finish with Fleur de Sol and place back on warm burner to keep the caramel from solidifying.
  • 5) Begin popping your popcorn into a large bowl and drizzle caramel mixture ontop of popcorn. Quickly mix to disperse popcorn and evenly distribute onto a greased/covered sheet pan. Let cool and store in plastic bags. Keep away from moisture to avoid popcorn becoming a hot mess!
