Pumpkin Spice Salted Caramel Popcorn

My daughter and I wanted to do something fall-ish together, so we decided to make popcorn....not just any popcorn though...."fall-ish" popcorn....Pumpkin Spice Salted Caramel Popcorn to be exact.
Popcorn has always been her favorite snack and this time we put a fall spin on it.  Since making it this way, we have made it about a dozen more times and gave them as gifts.  
Make sure to make extra for yourself to enjoy....we always do!!!

What you'll need:
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels 
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1- 1 1/2 t sea salt 
  • pumpkin pie spice

~Before putting in oven, sprinkle salt to taste and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice.

~Add in pecans, slivered almonds and peanuts (optional).

  1. Preheat oven to 300°
  2. Pop popcorn kernels using air popper or use a brown paper bag and microwave for 2-3 minutes,
  3. In a saucepan melt butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and 1 tsp salt together over medium heat. Bring to boil and boil for 4 minutes without stirring.
  4. Pour caramel mixture over popcorn and stir to coat evenly.
  5. Pour popcorn into pan.  Sprinkle with salt and spices.  Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  6. Allow popcorn to cool before eating.
