Spoil the Father in your life with a homemade batch of delicious and only slightly addictive salted stout caramel corn. Well, really you’re kind of making it for yourself too – so, spoil yourself with a homemade batch of salted stout caramel corn!
12 cups popped popcorn
½ cup plus 2 tbsp (1 1/4 sticks) melted butter
½ cup stout beer
1 ¼ cups packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 ½ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Combine melted butter, stout, brown sugar, corn syrup and ½ tsp sea salt in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil without stirring. Heat until mixture reaches 248 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. Pour mixture over popcorn. Using a rubber spatula, stir until popcorn is evenly coated. Transfer popcorn to a large baking sheet. Bake caramel corn, until golden brown, about 40 minutes, toss occasionally. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp salt and let cool. Break into clusters. Enjoy!
