Caramel Popcorn

I recently made this Caramel Popcorn for an after school treat for Poppy, after posting on my Instagram page I got so many requests for the recipe, so here it is! It is so easy to make, and it's one of the few recipes I don't cook with the children as the caramel gets very hot and can burn badly. This popcorn would be fantastic as party favors or Christmas gifts. Enjoy.  

What you'll need:
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup popping corn
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup golden syrup
1 cup caster sugar
100g butter, chopped

What to do:
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add 2 corn kernels. Oil is hot enough when corn turns slowly in a circle. Add remaining corn kernals. Cover with a tight-fitting lid. Shake saucepan gently when corn starts popping. Remove from heat when corn stops popping. Transfer to a bowl. Discard unpopped corn.

Place honey, golden syrup, sugar and butter in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil. Boil, without stirring, for 5 minutes or until light golden. Working quickly, pour mixture over popcorn. Stir to combine. Spoon onto pans lines with baking paper. Set aside to cool completely. Break into pieces.
