Cow Tales Chocolate Caramel Popcorn Recipe

Ingredients

  • 12 Chocolate Cow Tales®
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 (1 stick) cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt (optional)

Instructions - Stovetop Popcorn

Coat the bottom of a large saucepan with vegetable oil and add corn kernels. Shake the pot so the kernels lay flat on the bottom of the pan in the oil. Place the pot over a medium-high heat. When the oil starts to crackle, gently shake the pot to rotate the kernels. Do this every 30 seconds until the corn begins to pop. When the popping stops, immediately pour the popcorn into a large bowl. Remove any un-popped kernels and set the bowl aside.

Instructions - Chocolate Caramel Sauce

Unwrap and chop the Chocolate Cow Tales® in to peanut-sized bits and set aside. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Stir in the sugar until it melts. Stir in the corn syrup and cocoa. Bring the mixture to a boil over the lowest possible heat setting. Stirring frequently, allow the mixture to boil for 5 minutes.

Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour half of the chocolate sauce over the popcorn. Toss the popcorn, then add the remainder of the mixture, and toss the popcorn again. Spread the popcorn on cookie sheet and salt to taste. Sprinkle the Chocolate Cow Tales® bits on top.

Bake for 15 minutes. Remove and toss the popcorn. Let the popcorn cool for 10 minutes and toss again. The popcorn will stick together as it cools. Break apart any clumps and continue to toss, as needed, to prevent the chocolate caramel from settling to the bottom of the pan. Serve when completely cool.

How to Make Popcorn on the Stove

It's so easy to make popcorn on the stove! All you need is a large pot, some vegetable oil, and, well, popcorn kernels of course! Coat the bottom of the saucepan with vegetable oil, followed by the corn kernels. When the oil begins to sizzle, gently shake the saucepan to rotate the kernels and then cover it with a lid.
