- 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
- Sea salt
- 1/2 cup barley malt
- 1/2 cup rice syrup
We're going to prepare the popcorn without any oil. Use a hot air popper if you have one. If not, place a saucepan over a medium to low heat. In the pan place 4 kernels of corn and cover lightly. When the kernels have popped, the pan is ready, so put all the kernels in. When there are no more popping sounds, it's done. Be careful not to burn the corn.
Pour the popcorn into a large bowl.
In a saucepan, heat the barley malt and rice syrup, bringing them to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for another 2 minutes. Pour almost all of the hot sweetener over the popcorn and mix well. Make sure you have covered all of the popcorn with the sweetener.
In a nonstick pan, spread out the popcorn. With the remaining sweetener, brush any missed pieces. Place in an oven heated to 375 degrees. When the sweetener begins to darken, the cracker jacks are done. Be careful not to burn the sweetener--it heats quickly.
Remove, let cool. After you have found your toy surprise to include, serve.
