Favorite Caramel Popcorn

Just wanted to share a favorite snack in our household.  I'm warning you... it's so yummy - it's hard to stop eating it!  Me and the men in my life {my husband and our 4 boys} LOVE. LOVE. LOVE . . .
Oven Caramel Corn
 It makes a great gift too!
You simply must try this recipe! It's MMMM mmmm good!  {yours may look a bit different than the pictures,  because I ran out of popcorn seeds and didn't have quite enuf, so mine is extra caramelly.}
recipe is from a family cookbook

3 & 3/4 quarts (15 cups) popped corn
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Heat oven to 200 degrees. Use two 9 x 13 pans, putting1/2 of popped corn in each pan . Mix brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt.  Cook and stir (in saucepan) until it bubbles around the edge.  Cook 5 min. longer.  Add 1/2 tsp. baking soda. Stir until foamy. Pour 1/2 over each pan of popcorn.  Mix until popcorn is covered. Bake 1 hr. stirring every 15 minutes. SO EASY!

Variation: to make JELLO POPCORN, omit the brown sugar and add 2 small (3 oz.) boxes jello {raspberry, strawberry, lime, any kind jello is good}
Not only is the jello popcorn just as great tasting, it's so pretty too!

:) Enjoy!

  6. I like Caramel Popcorn. The recipe I have of my mom's has baking soda in it, and is missing some steps. This sounds way easier! I'm going to have to give this a try!
