How To Make Butterscotch Popcorn.

Your rating: None
This is a step by step guide on how to make butterscotch crunchy popcorn. It's so easy, quick and fun that children can make it under supervision.
What you'll need: 
40 grams popping corn
60 grams white sugar
60 grams butter
pinch of salt
1 large tablespoon golden syrup
2 large baking trays
popcorn machine or a saucepan and a little vegetable oil
Preheat your oven to 150 celsius , 300 farenheit or gas mark 2. Pop the corn using your machine (if you dont have one then pour a little oil into a saucepan. Add the popcorn and put the lid on. Heat on the cooker till you hear the corn popping . Keep shaking the pan till the corn stops popping , then it is ready for the next stage)
Take a clean saucepan and add to it the sugar, salt butter and syrup. Melt on a gentle heat slowly stirring. Allow the mixture to boil for one minute and then remove from the heat.
Pour the mixture over the popcorn that you prepared earlier and use two forks to mix together. Dont worry if the popcorn becomes a little soggy , this is quiet normal for this stage.
Lay the popcorn mixture on the baking trays and bake in the oven for ten minutes. Mix the popcorn around half way through cooking. The popcorn should be a golden colour.
Remove and allow to cool. As it cools it will crisp up.
This is a lot cheaper to make. It would be a good idea to make a double batch as it tends to be addictive.
You can put it into little plastic bags tied with ribbon as little gifts for children.
Why not make your own popcorn to take to the cinema.
