Popcorn is a type of corn which explodes and puffs up when the corn kernels are heated, this method of popping corn was discovered by Americans and its became a popular snack food especially in movie theaters..Corns are able to pop becauce of their kernels which have hard moisture sealed hull and dense starch filling this allows pressure to build inside the kernel until an explosive pop happens..Some consider it as a healthy food and its widely consumed in front of TV and while watching movies..I have a electric appliance to pop up the corn kernels which i get from supermarkets and i used to pop them at home as per our need..My lil ones usually ask me to prepare the same sweet and buttered popcorns we get from the movie theaters, to be honest i was planning to make out those crunchy and sweet popcorns loaded with butter and sugar eventhough its not healthy i just want to make out as my lil ones enjoy having them, finally i googled for this crunchy popcorns and i crossed here which seems quite easy and prefect for me which i prepared with less butter and replaced corn syrup with honey,finally i prepared a large bowl of pop corns and prepared this vanilla flavoured popcorn crunch..we loved it and the whole large bowl vanished within few hours and my lil one really enjoyed munching these crunchy beauties..
3/4cup Brown Packed Sugar
1/2tsp Baking soda
1tsp Vanilla extract..
Preheat the oven to 200F and take the popped corns in a large bowl also arrange a baking sheet over a baking tray..Heat the sugar, butter, honey with salt in a pan, bring boil and simmer for few minutes until the sugar get well dissolved..remove the pan from heat and add the baking soda and vanilla extract..mixture will become foamy...add this foamy syrup to the pop corns, mix well until the pop corns get coated, dont worry if the corns didnt get well coated it will happens while baking..
Pour this over the baking sheet and bake for 40-45minutes (stir every 15 minutes)..remove the tray from the oven and break them slightly, conserve them in air tightened box and enjoy..
