It’s baseball season and it reminds me of caramel popcorn at the ball park! I had left over caramel sauce from my Marshmallow Caramel Rice Krispie Treats so I decided to pop some popcorn to finish off the sauce. The sauce worked perfectly with popcorn and I threw in some almonds. Caramel popcorn with almonds is a great little sweet snack!
Get your air popper out and grab those kernels and pop away! Fresh air popped popcorn is my favorite, but you can also use microwave popcorn.
Instead of paying $10 per bag at the ballpark, you can make your own for a lot less and it makes a lot more! You can sit on your couch and watch the game and eat this yummy treat and be just as happy.
If you’re not a fan of baseball, grab your favorite movie and devour this caramel popcorn with almonds. It will go quick!
Caramel Popcorn with Almonds
- 1 cup popcorn
- 6 ounces caramels (wrapped)
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 cup almonds
- salt (to taste)
Grab a bowl or large pot. Pop the popcorn over the stove or use an air popper (you can use microwave popcorn as well). Add the almonds to the popcorn.
In a medium saucepan place the unwrapped caramels, heavy cream and butter. Over medium heat stir constantly until creamy.
Let the caramel sauce cool (about 10 minutes) then pour all over popcorn. Stir with a wooden spoon until covered evenly. Sprinkle salt over caramel popcorn if desired.
Popcorn will last for a few days in an airtight container.
