About a month ago, we came home one night and this was sitting on our front porch.
And we had a message on our phone from the W’s. A (sweet) confession, for a little prank they pulled on us, and our friends, the B’s a few years back.
In case you forgot we are kind of into the UTES. And our friends the B’s, are into BYU. One morning we woke up and our lawn was covered in painted blue block Y’s, BYU footballs, BYU signs etc. The B’s got the same treatment, only their lawn was covered in red U’s, UTE footballs, UTE signs etc. We thought the B’s pulled a fast one on us, until we found out about their lawn. Over the years, accusations were made and highly sensitive info was leaked, but we were never really sure who the culprit was until the popcorn confession.
Oh – the popcorn. Delish. Caramely, buttery, sticky, sweet. Perfect Halloween treat. Seriously easy and bad for you.
U‘re gonna love it.
Ute Caramel Confession Corn
4 quarts popcorn, popped (or two bags of microwaved popcorn)
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup lite Karo syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt—- add only if you are using unsalted popcorn
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix caramel ingredients in a medium microwave proof bowl. Place in microwave 1 1/2 minutes on high. Remove and stir. Microwave 1 1/2 minute more. Remove from microwave and add 1 teaspoon baking soda, stir. Pour over popcorn in large bowl, toss caramel and popcorn until popcorn is coated.
-I cooked this on the stove instead of the microwave. Just melted the butter, then added everything else (except soda) and boiled for 2-3 minutes. Then added soda and tossed with popcorn.
-After following directions you may spread the mixture on two greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Stir at 5 minutes. This made a yummy crunchy caramel corn.
