“Conference Popcorn,” Friend, Oct. 2010, 13
This popcorn treat takes two hours to set. You can prepare it before a session of conference, and then enjoy it with your family afterward and talk about things you learned from the speakers.
13-ounce (85-g) bag plain microwave popcorn, popped (about 4 cups of popped popcorn)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Pour the popped popcorn into a mixing bowl. Throw away any unpopped kernels.
With an adult’s help, melt the butter or margarine in a saucepan, then stir in the corn syrup and brown sugar. Continue to stir, and when the mixture boils rapidly, pour it over the popcorn.
Use a wooden spoon to stir the popcorn until it is coated with the butter mixture. Sprinkle on the nuts, if desired.
Spread the popcorn onto a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Let it sit at room temperature for two hours, then break the popcorn into clusters.
