I never much liked the idea of caramel popcorn. And even though in Iceland we like all that is big and grand and American, this treat has yet to become very popular – despite it having been around in America since the 1890s. But then I saw how terribly simple it is to make it, in a Swedish cooking show called “Leila Bakar”.
You simply cover a frying pan with sugar, let it melt (don’t stir!), add a piece of butter and stir it in. Then you add the popcorn and a another small piece of butter. The popcorn obviously needs to roll around in the caramel before you pour it out of the pan and onto a baking paper. Just make sure not to put too much caramel or too much popcorn on the pan.
Very, very easy and it tastes much better than I thought it would!
