Your Daily Dish: Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Popcorn
The secret is out of the bag – you finally stop buying overpriced and stale candied popcorn! Lisa has created a recipe that allows you to easily and expertly whip up batch after batch of this incredible Chocolate Caramel Popcorn & Pretzels. In this sweet and salty treat (and amazing edible gift!), popcorn and pretzels are tossed with a homemade caramel sauce, baked and then drizzled with melted chocolate.
12 cups unsalted popped popcorn
2½ cups mini pretzels
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup butter, cubed
¼ cup light corn syrup
½ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp baking soda
4 oz white chocolate, melted
4 oz semi-sweet chocolate, melted
1) Preheat oven to 250ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Coat a large mixing bowl with non-stick cooking spray and place popcorn and pretzels in the bowl. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, salt and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda (mixture will bubble up a little). Quickly and carefully pour over the popcorn and pretzels and toss using wooden spoons to mix. Spread over prepared baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
2) Remove from oven and transfer popcorn mixture to parchment paper to cool. Drizzle with melted white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate. Cool completely to let chocolate set. Store in an airtight container.
