Recipe of the Week ~ Salted Caramel Popcorn

Salted Caramel Popcorn

Yield: About 8 cups popcorn
Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes
This sweet and salty popcorn treat is a super yummy to snack on 
while enjoying a night at the Drive-in with friends!


6 cups plain popped popcorn
2 cups coarsely chopped salted pretzels
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus more for sprinkling
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup miniature marshmallows
Drop of red food coloring
     -if you want to make the popcorn pink for Easter
1 1/2 cups Easter Pretzel M&M's


1. In a large bowl, combine popcorn and pretzels. Set aside. In a
medium saucepan, bring sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and water to a
boil over medium high heat. Boil, undisturbed, until mixture is
amber in color, for about 8-12 minutes. Remove pan from heat
and slowly pour in the heavy cream. Be careful because the mixture
will bubble up. Stir until smooth and add vanilla extract,
marshmallows, and drop of red food coloring-if using. Stir until
marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth.
2. Pour caramel mixture over popcorn and pretzels and gently
stir with a rubber spatula until popcorn is well coated. Stir in
 the pretzel M&M's. Transfer mixture to a large baking
sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. Let cool completely.
