Caramel Popcorn YBC

Ingredients & Directions

16 cups popped popcorn (or 4 bags microwave popped      

1/2 cup butter or 1 stick butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup dark Karo syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup honey roasted peanuts (optional)

Instructions:

-Place the popped popcorn in a very large bowl and set aside. If you want peanuts in your popcorn, toss them in with the popcorn.

-Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray or just spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a microwave safe bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, Karo syrup, vanilla & baking soda. Heat for 2 minutes, take out of the microwave & mix all ingredients well. Return to microwave & cook for another 3-5 minutes or until mixture is hot & bubbly. Remove from the microwave, and carefully pour the hot caramel over the popcorn. Stir quickly to coat the popcorn evenly. Spread the popcorn evenly over the baking sheet. Place in the oven for approximately 10 minutes. Flip the caramel corn over, and cook the other side for another 5-10 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, allow it to cool & dry completely, then break it apart and eat. This is so yummy!! Store in a can with lid or other container. Plastic is fine.
