Recently I had an all night read-a-thon with my kids. I wanted it to be
lots of fun, and full of lots of yummy food. These are the memories that I want my kids to remember forever and maybe one day do with their kids.
My kids love caramel popcorn but sticky fingers & books don't mix well.
Soooooo I thought we would try a baked aka less sticky caramel popcorn. It
was a hit!!!
The kids lasted until 11:30 and thats about how long the popcorn lasted
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 bags microwave popcorn
Mix butter, brown sugar, corn syrup in the microwave. Until boiling.
Remove from microwave and add vanilla & baking soda (be prepared this will make your caramel rise)
Pour over cooked popcorn. Stir until coated well. Place on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 250 stirring every 15 minutes. The longer you cook, the crispier
it gets. Don't cook longer than 1 hour. I prefer 30-45 minutes, its crunchy
but not too hard!!
