Moose might be at home in Alaska, but Moose Munch can be found coast to coast. Ashton, we couldn’t agree more… Your DIY Moose Munch is delicious!
6 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. corn syrup
3/4 C. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 – 2 bags popped popcorn
chocolate chips, nuts, M&Ms, etc. to taste
Preheat oven to 300º.
Remove all unpopped kernels from popcorn and pour popcorn into a bowl.
Meanwhile: Combine butter, corn syrup, and brown sugar over medium heat. Cook and stir until mixture boils. Continue boiling at a stead rate for 4 minutes without stirring.
Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and vanilla.
Pour caramel over popcorn and stir to coat.
Spread onto greased cookie sheet, and bake for 10-15 minutes (10 for chewy, 15 for crunchy).
Remove from oven and add toppings. Let cool briefly before returning to bowl. (Or you can let it cool completely if you don’t want the chocolate to smudge… but where’s the fun in that??)
