Question Tupperware recipe card caramel popcorn oven recipe late 1980s?

Tupperware recipe card caramel popcorn oven recipe late 1980s?


In the late 1980s I had a Tupperware party and the I received a caramel popcorn recipe card. For years we made caramel popcorn from that recipe card. As time past my teen DDs started making caramel popcorn and the recipe card got lost. Does anyone still have the recipe card of oven made caramel popcorn recipe card from Tupperware? I would really appreciate it.

I searched online and the only one I can find is the one made in the microwave.

Is this it? My sister in law was really big into Tupperware in the late 70's and we would have game night once a week. She always made the caramel corn. I have this recipe from her written on the inside of my Joy of Cooking cookbook.
Put popped corn in a large Tupperware bowl. In a heavy saucepan, place 18 large marshmallows, 1 stick margarine, and about 1/3 c. brown sugar. Cook the marshmallows, margarine, and brown sugar, stirring constantly. The mixture will foam up. Pour over the popped corn and mix up with a large spoon. Serve while warm. It will be gooey and good.

No unfortunately not. There are no marshmallows in it. It also had measurements of popped corn in cups. The recipe I had makes cracker jack type popcorn. It is very nice to store and keep for later. More dry then wet. I heard the one with the marshmallows is good too. Thank you for your response. One thing I remember is cooking it in the oven for a long time on low.

How about this one:2 bags of microwave popcorn
1 stick margarine,
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp. baking soda
1 large brown paper bag

Pop the popcorn and place in large brown paper bag.

Combine margarine, brown sugar, and syrup in a 4 1/2 C.Tupperware Heat 'N Serve. Heat on high for 5 minutes, stirring once every 2 1/2 minutes. Stir in baking soda. Mixture will foam!

Pour over popcorn in bag and shake. Place bag in microwave and heat on high for 1 minute. Shake, heat 1 more minute, shake.

Store in airtight container.

(Note: There's no reason this recipe wouldn't work with standard popped popcorn. Place popped corn in an 8-Cup Heat 'N Serve. Pour syrup over corn, seal, and immediately shake well. Heat in microwave on high as above, etc.)

Not the same but indeed sounds a lot closer to what I remember. I might give it a little more time to see if anyone still has the original tupperware recipe and else I give this a try.

Here is your recipe straight off the original Tupperware card:

8 cups popped popcorn (about 1/3 cup unpopped)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons margarine or butter
3 tablespoons light corn syrup

Spread popcorn out in 17 x 12 x 2 inch baking pan; set aside. For caramel mixture, in a heavy medium saucepan combine the brown sugar, margarine, corn syrup, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook and stir over medium heat till mixture starts to boil. Continue cooking for 5 minutes. Remove caramel mixture from heat and pour over popcorn. Toss quickly to coat.
Bake the caramel-coated popcorn in a 300 oven for 15 minutes. Stir popcorn. Return to oven and bake 5 to 10 minutes more or till well coated. Gently stir in 1 cup peanuts, if desired. Turn caramel popcorn out onto foil. Cool; break up into 1-inch pieces. Store in the Cereal Storer. Makes about 10 cups.

I make this every year, but I wrote a note to double the syrup for the same amount of popcorn. I love mine more caramel than the recipe. Merry Christmas!!
