- Line a loaf tin with some waxed baking paper.

- Remove pan from heat and add popped corn. Mix well until popcorn is covered with the “caramel”.
- Transfer the mixture into the paper-lined loaf tin and press down into the corners with a spoon. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes for the mixture to cool.
