I made this Crackle Corn Recipe for my Best Friend’s Bridal Shower! I even added edible GOLD GLITTER Dust to the recipe so that it would shine! This turned out better than I could have hoped and I’m sure I will be making it again with the gold glitter!

Crackle Corn Ingredients

Crackle Corn Recipe

Here’s what you need!

A Large  Baking Pan (I used a 9 1/2″ x 15″ Baking Pan)

A Brown Paper Lunch Sacks

4 Quarts of Air Popped Popcorn (1/2 Cup of Popcorn Kernels)

1/2 Cup (1 Stick) Butter

1/2 Cup Karo Corn Syrup

1 Cup Sugar

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla

Glittered Flavored Popcorn

Directions:

Pre-heat your oven to 250 Degrees.

Popcorn

Pop Popcorn Kernels in a Brown Paper Bag – I used 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels to make 2 quarts of popcorn in a brown paper bag. I microwaved the kernels for 1 minute and 30 seconds, but keep in mind that the popping time could vary depending on your microwave. I did this two times so that I had 4 quarts of popcorn.

*Tip: 8 Cups of Popcorn = 2 Quarts of Popcorn, so you will need a total of 16 Cups of freshly popped popcorn!

Crackle Corn

Combine the Butter, Karo Corn Syrup, Sugar, and Salt into a sauce pan and cook it on the stove until the ingredients begin to boil (be sure to stir this while it is on the stove). Keep in mind that this “Crackle Mixture” will start to boil after the butter and sugar have melted.

After the butter and sugar have melted, let the “Crackle Mixture” boil for 5 minutes (do not stir during the 5 minutes).

After 5 minutes, remove the “Crackle Mixture” from the stove and add in the vanilla.

Put the 4 quarts of popcorn into the large baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray so that the popcorn does not stick. Pour the “Crackle Mixture” over the top of the popcorn and mix it in with a spatula (I found that if I sprayed my spatula with cooking spray it didn’t stick to the sugar as much). Also, I recommend that you “fold in” the “Crackle Mixture” so that the popcorn doesn’t get smashed.

Once the “Crackle Mixture” is all mixed in, place the baking pan into the oven!

Bake the Crackle Corn for 1 hour.

*Here is the trick, you must stir the Crackle Corn every 15 minutes while it is baking. I find it easier just to set the timer for every 15 minutes so that I do not forget to stir it!

Once the baking/stirring process is complete, pour the Crackle Corn on to aluminum foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray to cool.

As soon as you put the Crackle Corn on the foil, sprinkle with edible Gold Glitter Dust!

It only needs to cool about 20-30 minutes and then you can store it in whatever container you choose, or start gift wrapping your Crackle Corn for special gifts!

Julie and Amy

I just had to add this picture of me and Amy at her Bridal Shower! This girl has supported me more than anyone else over the last 10 years! I am so thankful for her love, encouragement, and loyalty! I can not even imagine a better picture to describe our relationship! She is the strongest girl I know and I can’t wait to stand by her side as she marries the love of her life! God has blessed us with each other over the years to grow and learn through many seasons of life. It’s finally setting in that she is really getting married! I am excited to see her thrive in this new season of life and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for her!!!
