You won't be able to resist this ultimate in caramel corn. A deep saucepan of about 16-cup (4 L) capacity is the perfect size so the caramel does not boil over. You'll need the full 10 cups (2.5 L) of popcorn to get it evenly coated.

Ingredients

  • 10 cups freshly popped corn 2.5 L (about 1/2 cup/125 mL kernels)
  • 1 1/2 cup pecan halves

Method

Place popcorn in large shallow greased roasting pan. Break pecans in half lengthwise; add to pan. Set aside.

In large heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring sugar, butter, maple syrup, corn syrup and salt to boil over medium heat; boil, stirring constantly, until candy thermometer reaches hard-crack stage of 300°F (149°C), 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in maple extract.
