Popcorn and Bones

Matt and I have been watching Bones since it first came out.  Which is about as long as we’ve been together and tonight… tonight is THE night!!!  Booth and Bones are finally getting married!!!  I’m probably a little more excited about this than absolutely necessary. My night is cleared and I’m about to make a batch of this Pumpkin Caramel Popcorn.

Sweet, Cinnamon-y and addictive, this is the first popcorn experiment that I’ve tried that Matt has told me “must stay in the house always”.  It’s a good snack that will hold up for packing in a lunch box or taking to the drive-in for a movie night. Now… if you will excuse me, I have a snack to make for the wedding I’ve been waiting for since Season 1!

Pumpkin Caramel Popcorn

  • 10 cups popped popcorn
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger

Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the sugar, honey and spices.  Bring to a boil as the sugar melts and let it bubble for about 5 minutes, stirring well.  Then, pour the caramel sauce over the popcorn, stirring to coat.  Once all the popcorn has been coated, spread it out on a baking sheet evenly.  Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and bake at 200 degrees for an hour.  Check frequently to make sure the caramel isn’t burning and stir each time.  Eat as soon as you can.  Or wait until it cools.  Whatever you like.  It keeps well in an air-tight container.
