Caramel Corn!!! Who doesn't love caramel corn? Homemade caramel corn beats store bought caramel corn, microwave-your-own caramel corn, and even fair caramel corn! For real! So without further adieu....the BEST caramel corn you will EVER eat!
Amazing Caramel Corn
6 qt. popped corn
(You can use 3 microwave bags but I'm too
cheap so I pop it in a large covered pan on the stove.)
In a sauce pan melt and stir:
2 c. brown sugar
2 sticks butter (salted)
1/2 c. light corn syrup (I use store brand...corn syrup is corn syrup, right?)
1/2 tsp. salt
Cook and stir occasionally over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Once it comes to a rolling boil keep it on medium and stir constantly for 5 minutes (keeps it from scorching). Remove from heat and add 1/2 tsp. baking soda and stir. Pour it over the corn (the bigger bowl to fold it in, the better!) and fold until coated.
Pour onto 2 cookie sheets with raised edges (don't grease them). Bake 200 degrees for an hour...important...gently flip over the caramel corn with a metal pancake flipper (plastic will stick to it) every 20 minutes.
Store in airtight container...assuming your family hasn't devoured it in an evening...as ours definitely can!
Yummmy!! Now go make some because it's my birthday and I said so! *wink*
