"Great caramel popcorn for any holiday or occasion. If you like chewy popcorn, bake less."
Prep Time: 30 Min
Cook Time: 1 Hr
Ready In: 1 Hr 30 Min
Original Recipe Yield 5 quarts
- 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
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (95 degrees C). Place popped popcorn in a very large bowl (I use a roaster pan, so it can go in the oven - if you divide the popcorn for lack of large containers, you need to also divide the gooey part).
2. 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.
3. 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 (or tasting it!).
