Doesn't that look good enough to eat! Would you like to actually try some of this delectable treat for yourself?
Well, here's my recipe ...
1 cup unpopped popcorn
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pop the popcorn, and have ready in a large roasting pan, or other large oven-proof pan.
Combine butter, brown sugar, syrup and salt in a medium saucepan. Heat on stove over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture begins to boil, . Once it boils, let it boil for 5 minutes without stirring.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda. Pour this mixture over the popped popcorn, and stir gently with a rubber spatula until the popcorn is somewhat coated. Don't worry if all popcorn is not coated, because you will be stirring it again.
Bake popcorn at 250F for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes with a rubber spatula (this keeps the popcorn from crumbling too much). Be sure to scrape the spatula along the bottom of the pan to get up all the caramel that will pool there.
Remove from oven and continue to stir gently with the rubber spatula until the popcorn has cooled. This will keep the popcorn from sticking together in large clumps.
ps once you start eating this stuff it's very hard to stop!
