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.

Ingredients:
Popcorn
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:

popcorn-balls

I popped one batch of popcorn in a huge pot:

Spread the popped popcorn out on a large piece of wax paper (mine was about 1 1/2 time the size of a cookie sheet):

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 caramel is fully melted and smooth (note: you can add more condensed milk if needed), drizzle over popcorn with a spoon, then sprinkle lightly with sea salt:
caramel-corn

When the chocolate is ready, drizzle it evenly over the top with a spoon, and do a final sprinkling of sea salt:
caramel-chocolate-popcorn

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.

Enjoy!

  5. Two words! PACKER PARTY!
    I am a bit afraid of letting my hubby have the caramels though, each year he seems to need to flex off a crown and steal outta our flex accout to the tune of $1800 to $2400 for dentist, and then in the poorhouse all year. I think I shall have to hide this one. 😉 No calories either?
