Just finished a great recipe for Caramel Corn that I found online. It was rated 5 stars with something like 988 reviews, so I figured it had to be good. And it is!
Here's the recipe if you're craving this flavor on this beautiful fall day!
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 5 quarts popped popcorn
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (95 degrees C). Place popcorn in a very large bowl.
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in soda and vanilla. Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat.
- Place in two large shallow baking dishes and bake in preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool completely before breaking into pieces.
Here are a couple tips other people suggested that I tried: (1.) Use half the butter suggested--still turns out great. (2.) Add peanuts or pecans.
