No sports game or show is complete without snacks! Today I’m sharing the caramel corn recipe that I have used for over 12 years—with a twist! We drizzled chocolate over it and (I can’t believe I’m saying this) it made it even BETTER! Served in paper cones, it is the perfect portion size for snacking on during the big game.
Paper Snack Cones
Brown kraft paper
Scotch® Create Double-sided Tape
Scotch® Expressions White Glitter Tape
These cones are meant to resemble a football, so use the Scotch® Expressions White Glitter Tape to create the stitching on the center of your paper. I love how versatile the tape is. It sticks to many different surfaces and worked great for this project!
Apply a piece of Scotch® Create Double-sided Tape to the back. I like that it has a removable adhesive backing. Peel the backing off and roll the cone so that the ends meet up and over lap about an inch. Press firmly.
Game Day Chocolate Caramel Popcorn
Combine butter, sugar, salt and karo syrup in a medium saucepan and heat over med-high heat. When bubbly, set timer for 5 minutes and boil, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and add baking soda. Stir.
Pour caramel mixture over popcorn in the roasting pan. Give it a nice stir to make sure the popcorn is coated evenly.
Bake at 200 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes, for 1 hour. Pour out onto waxed paper in a single layer and cool.
Melt chocolate in the microwave at 20 second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until smooth. Pour into a small plastic bag, cut off one corner, and drizzle over caramel corn. Let sit until chocolate has hardened.
Break up popcorn chunks and store in an air tight container.
