Almond White Chocolate Caramel Corn

If you love almonds and white chocolate as much as I do, you will love this Almond White Chocolate Caramel corn! Do you remember a month or so ago I shared the most delicious Gooey Vanilla Caramel Corn Recipe?  Well, today I’m adding a little TWIST! Using the original recipe, I just substituted the vanilla extract for almond extract, then added some white chocolate to the gooey mixture that melted….and then threw in some white chocolate chips with almonds at the end–so YUM!

Delicious treat!
Ingredients
  • ½ stick butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar (not packed)
  • 1 cup light Karo Syrup
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (10 oz.)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 4 to 5 quarts popped popcorn (2.5-3 bags microwave popcorn)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup whole or slivered almonds
Instructions
  1. Combine butter, sugar, Karo syrup in saucepan over medium heat and stir well. Keep stirring over medium heat until sugar has dissolved.
  2. When mixture comes to a slow boil, add your condensed milk – keep stirring.
  3. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a soft ball stage and test with a candy thermometer (*234-238 degrees).
  4. Stir in almond extract,pour over popcorn.
  5. Stir to coat.
  6. Drop in half of the white chocolate chips to melt
  7. After a few minutes, mix in the rest of the choco chips and almonds
  8. *If you don’t have a candy thermometer to test the soft ball stage, you can test it in ice water by dripping some caramel from a spoon into ice water and once you can form a ball the Carmel is done.
  9. This batch treats my family of 6 plus some extra to give to friends

  1. See? Yet another reason I should invest in a candy thermometer. I shy away from recipes that require things like soft ball stage, since they intimidate me. However, I LOOOOVE caramel corn. *sigh*

    I should get my mom to make it for me :)

      Yeah, I used to shy away from such recipes too, and it’s only recently I’ve bit the bullet!
