A request has been made for my caramel corn recipe, so here it is!
14 cups popped popcorn
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. soda
Place popcorn in 9 x 13 pan. In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil. Boil for 4 to 5 minutes, being careful not to burn it.. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and soda. (this is my favorite part because of the little chemical reaction thing that goes on. You'll just have to make it to witness it for yourself!) Pour caramel mixture over the popcorn and stir. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
Take out of pan immediately and allow to cool.
There you have it. It's really, really tasty. Trust me!
