Moose Munch

This Moose Munch is great for movie treats. Perfect finger food, and yummy.

Please take note: I had all these wonderful plans to include M&Ms and almonds (or almond M&Ms!) and maybe a white chocolate drizzle (so many options!). But I got totally impatient and decided to go ahead and make this before my trip to the store. Just sayin’…

Moose Munch

Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp. butter
  • 3 tbsp. corn syrup
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 – 2 bags popped popcorn
  • chocolate chips, nuts, M&Ms, etc. to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300º.
  2. Remove all unpopped kernels from popcorn and pour popcorn into a bowl.
  3. Meanwhile: Combine butter, corn syrup, and brown sugar over medium heat. Cook and stir until mixture boils. Continue boiling at a stead rate for 4 minutes without stirring.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and vanilla.
  5. Pour caramel over popcorn and stir to coat.
  6. Spread onto greased cookie sheet, and bake for 10-15 minutes (10 for chewy, 15 for crunchy).
  7. Remove from oven and add toppings. Let cool briefly before returning to bowl. (Or you can let it cool completely if you don’t want the chocolate to smudge… but where’s the fun in that??)
PS- I bought the popcorn containers at Target for $1!!
