Caramel Chocolate Popcorn with Sea Salt
I used to make this heavenly popcorn treat frequently, but recently added a new twist – sea salt! I enjoy the sweet and salty flavors together, so I decided to combine the two in this delicious dessert.
Oil for popping
1 bag of wrapped caramels
1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 bag milk chocolate chips
1 tsp. vegetable oil
2 tablespoons milk
Sea Salt (coursely ground)
I found a neat Popcorn Oil at Target today (by Archer Farms) and it gave my popcorn such a great flavor:
Next combine caramels and 1/2 can condensed sweetened milk into a sauce pan and melt over very low heat, stirring frequently (watch carefully!):
In a separate sauce pan, combine chocolate chips, milk and vegetable oil. Melt on very low heat until glossy and smooth. Stir frequently, and be careful not to burn!
When the chocolate is ready, drizzle it evenly over the top with a spoon, and do a final sprinkling of sea salt:
After it has cooled, break it apart, or cut into pieces with spatula.
This recipe would make a wonderful holiday gift (several actually!). Just place some in a decorative box, or in clear plastic with red and green bows attached.
