Ingredients

  • 10 cups plain popped popcorn
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ½ cup (1 stick or 113g) butter
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • 6 ounces white baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Herbes de Provence, (see notes for how to make your own)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 225°F. Put popped popcorn in a large bowl. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and chocolate to a boil. Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Immediately stir in Herbes de Provence and baking soda.

  3. Pour caramel sauce over the popcorn, tossing to coat evenly with a spatula sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Spread coated popcorn evenly over the prepared pan.
