I have never had trouble with this simple recipe for caramel corn until now so it is a mystery. Everything looked great(smooth consistency and taste) as I was mixing it with the popcorn right up until I take it out of the oven to give it a stir. That is when I noticed it was no longer smooth, moist and even a bit dry. When it was done I put it out to cool as I always do, then immediately stored it properly.
As I was laying it out, it remained rather dry just as it was when first pulling it out of oven for a stir.
There was grainy brown sugar left on the surface where it was cooling. Very perplexed.

    Would you post the recipe and steps you used? Are your kitchen temperature, humidity, and other conditions the same as for the previous batches? Aug 27, 2022 at 23:16
