caramel corn

this may be the easiest recipe, ever. everyone can make this one!

what you need:

4 quarts popped popcorn (or if you’re lazy like me, 2 bags of microwavable popcorn)

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup light corn syrup

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking soda


place popcorn into a large brown paper bag. set aside.

in medium sauce pan combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, salt, and vanilla. heat until all ingredients are melted, about 3 minutes. stir in baking soda.

pour syrup over the popcorn in the bag. roll down the top once or twice to close the bag, and shake to coat the corn. place the bag in the microwave, and cook for 1 minute 30 seconds. remove, shake, return to microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds. dump the popcorn out onto waxed paper, and let cool until coating is set.

* i drizzled milk chocolate and white chocolate on top and it was perfect. go crazy and add different things on top like mini marshmallows, cashews, pecans, or even more caramel!!
