I had no idea how simple it was to make caramel corn until this recipe enticed me to try. I was not disappointed!
Amaretto Caramel Corn
3 quarts (12 cups) popped popcorn
1 cup whole unblanched almonds
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup amaretto
Heat oven to 200°F. Arrange popcorn in two 15×10-inch jelly roll pans; sprinkle almonds over popcorn.
In small saucepan, melt margarine over low heat; stir in brown sugar and amaretto. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Boil 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour over popcorn mixture; toss until thoroughly coated. Bat at 200°F. for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove form oven; spread on foil or waxed paper to cool. Store in loosely covered container. 6-1/2 cups.
