One of my favorite things in the world is movie night inviting some friends round .
We have a few glasses of wine , have some really naughty snacks and just sit around trashing the horrible movies we choose to watch .
It's a lot of fun today .
I'm gonna show you one of my all time favorite movie night snacks .
Let's make some caramel nut popcorn .
I'm the one pot .
Chef , step one is to pop our popcorn .
So , into a large saucing or a big pan , I'm going to pour in some vegetable oil about a quarter of a cup .
You can use any plain vegetable oil you like .
I'm just using some canola oil .
I'm gonna heat the oil over a medium heat .
Now , we've got some popping corn here .
You can buy this from the supermarket quite commonly .
Now , we've got half a cup here .
And what we're gonna do is we're gonna put a couple of these bits of corn into the oil like that and when they start to sizzle and spin a little bit , we'll know the oil is hot enough .
Our popcorn is starting to sizzle .
So we're gonna put in the rest of our popcorn .
Put the lid on .
Make sure it's a tight fitting lid and we're gonna watch the magic happen .
A popcorn started to pop .
So what we're gonna do ?
Oh , there , there's another one .
We're just going to give the pan a gentle shake just to make sure all the popcorn is covered in that lovely oil .
And look at that once the popcorn starts to slow down and isn't popping as much .
Simply turn off the heat and let it finish .
Should be no more than about a minute or so away .
We've got a nice big crop of popcorn here .
I think we're just about done there .
So we're gonna transfer our popcorn into a large bowl and just discard any little popcorns that didn't pop .
Let's make our caramel into a sauce pan .
We're going to add in 100 and 25 g of butter , three quarters of a cup of white sugar and two tablespoons of beautiful rich honey .
And we're just gonna stir this together over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and the butter is melted .
It should be about five minutes or so .
Roughly once the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved into the mixture , we're gonna bring this mixture to the boil and allow it to boil for about five minutes or so .
Don't stir it while it's boiling .
Just let it boil for about five minutes or so until it goes a nice deep golden color a very quick tip .
Make sure you are very careful with this caramel while it's boiling and once it's done because it is extremely hot .
If you get it on your skin , it will burn your skin off .
You will be scarred for life .
So just be very careful .
Don't get it on .
You don't try and put your finger in it to taste it or anything like that .
Just leave it alone .
Trust me , treat it like lava .
Look at that beautiful golden color .
Turn off the heat and we're gonna completely remove the pan from the heat .
I'm gonna add in some crushed nuts .
Now , about a cup full of crushed peanuts and just gently stir them through .
I'm gonna pour our peanut caramel mixture over our popcorn and just using a spatula .
We're just going to gently toss our popcorn to make sure it all gets nicely coated .
Uh , caramel popcorn is looking sensational .
We're just gonna transfer this onto a tray lined with baking paper .
That's it spread out on the tray .
Now , we've just got to let this sit aside on the counter to cool .
Once it has , it'll be stuck together .
But then all you have to do is break it up and put it into bowls and here is some of our completed caramel peanut popcorn .
My dentist will have a fit if he ever sees this video , but I'm going to have a little taste .
Oh my God .
Oh , there's No denying that .
That's downright naughty .
You've got the beautiful taste of that popcorn .
You've got that rich , almost creamy caramel flavor .
And you've got those little explosions of peanut all through it .
Oh , don't tell my dentist .
Well , I hope you enjoyed this recipe .
