Caramel apples are a great fall treat to enjoy during the autumn months and this homemade caramel corn with fragrant apple recipe pays tribute to those fruity, sweet and savory flavors. The popcorn is made from scratch with wholesome ingredients making it a fun treat to prepare with kids.
The caramel corn begins with freshly popped popcorn that is topped with a homemade sauce. The sauce is made from brown sugar, corn syrup and apple juice concentrate to mimic the taste of fresh apples dipped in caramel that you might find at a fair or a chocolate shop. Once the caramel is hot cinnamon and salt is added before pouring the sauce overtop of the popcorn. The popcorn can be worked into small clusters and then baked for that crunchy texture.
