Servings: 10 people
- 1 Cup Butter
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Cup Karo Syrup
- 1 Can Sweet Condensed Milk
- 2 teaspoon Coconut Extract
- 1 pinch Salt
- 2 Cups Marshmallows
- 1 Bag Chocolate Chips
- 2 tsp Coconut Oil
- 2 Cups Shredded Coconut
In a large non-stick pot, melt the butter. Add the sugar, brown sugar, karo syrup, and sweetened condensed milk. Bring to a boil while stirring.
While using a candy thermometer, bring to a rapid boil of 235-240 degrees. Remove from heat and add the coconut extract and the salt.
Pour ¾ of your caramel mixture onto your popcorn and stir until all of the popcorn is covered in caramel. If you want a lot of caramel on your popcorn, use less popcorn, I didn't give an exact amount of popped popcorn because everyone like it a little different. For this recipe I would error on the side of a light coating of caramel because we are still going to add a few layers. Spread the caramel popcorn onto a couple of cookie sheets sprayed with non-stick cooking spray to cool.
With the remaining ¼ of caramel, add the 2 cups of marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are melted or almost melted. Put it back on the heat to melt the marshmallows if needed.
Drizzle the marshmallow caramel mixture on the caramel popcorn on the cookie sheets.
In a microwave safe bowl, add 2 teaspoon of coconut oil. Add the chocolate chips and microwave for 1 min. Stir the chocolate chips. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir again. Repeat this until the chocolate chips are melted.
Drizzle the chocolate chips on the caramel popcorn and sprinkle the toasted coconut on top. Let the popcorn rest and cool for about an hour before serving.
Put into clear plastic cups to serve. Enjoy!
