Caramel Popcorn - Recipe

This caramel popcorn by Company's Coming is by far the best I've ever tried.  It's easy to make and excellent for stuffing all those crafty containers you've been working at.

But be aware, this popcorn won't last long.  And, it's VERY addictive!

What You Need:

~  Popped corn about 1 cup, 250 mL, unpopped (or two bags natural microwave popcorn - popped)

~  Hard margarine (or butter) 1 cup /250 mL

~  Brown sugar, packed 2 cups /500 mL

~  Corn syrup 1/2 cup /125 mL

~  Salt 1 tsp./ 5 mL

~  Vanilla 1 tsp./ 5 mL

~  Baking soda 1/2 tsp. /2 mL

*  Put popped corn into extra-large bowl.

*  Combine margarine, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt in large heavy saucepan. Heat and stir on medium until boiling. Boil, without stirring, for 5 minutes.

*  Add vanilla and baking soda. Stir. Mixture will bubble and foam. Pour over popped corn. Toss until all pieces are coated. Spread on 2 large ungreased baking sheets. Bake in 250°F (120°C) oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool completely. Break apart. Store in resealable freezer bags. Makes about 24 cups (6 L).
