Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup popping corn
  • 125g butter, chopped
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. In a deep heavy pot heat oil add two pieces of popping corn then turn heat on. When both kernels pops it means your oil is ready.
  2. Pour the 1/2 cup of popping corn then cover, once you hear the popping sound move the pot briskly and continuously on the stove top so that the corn kernels that haven’t popped yet settles to the bottom. Once the popping stopped open the lid and pour popcorn on a separate container immediately.
  3. Using the same pot add the butter, salt and sugar, melt mixture in low heat until it becomes caramel in consistency. Please note sugar will initially crystalize and it will be in that state for a bit longer than you expected, be patient, don’t turn the heat higher and keep an eye on it as it will melt instantly, and once it melts give it 10 more seconds and you should turn of the heat immediately otherwise it will burn the sugar.
  4. Now add the popcorn and peanuts, mix well until popcorn is evenly coated.
  5. While still hot, place coated popcorn in a flat surface, prevent them from forming into large chunks and let it cool.
