Michaela calls this her  Poppity Toffee Popcorn. She first tasted it when she was watching a movie and there were a lot of interruptions.  When her mum brought in some of this caramel popcorn it was gone very quickly and there werenít as many interruptions.
Half a cup of un-popped popcorn
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
half a teaspoon of salt
125 g of butter or margarine
2 tablespoons of honey
ĺ cup of castor sugar

Put the vegetable oil in a saucepan with the element on medium heat.  Add the popcorn and salt. Place the lid on it and wiggle the pan around to keep the popcorn moving. Popping should start within about 30 seconds. Keep listening to the popping.  When it starts to slow down to just a few pops per 10 seconds, itís time turn the heat off.

Now the toffee.
In another saucepan, combine the butter, honey and castor sugar.  Stir on a medium heat until mixture has dissolved. Bring it to boil and let the mixture simmer for 7 minutes. Then take the pan off the heat. Stir a small amount of popcorn into the toffee at a time with the toffee mixture until itís well coated.

Spread popcorn over a greased tray until cool. Place the Poppity Toffee Popcorn in a bowl and munch!

Make sure you ask an adult to help you with this recipe as all the  ingredients get extremely hot!
