Caramel Corn

Back in December when I went to visit one of my best friends in Indiana, I was introduced to this easy peasy recipe for caramel corn.  The recipe comes from Karo.  I made this snack for our Super Bowl party.  I was very worried about how it would come out because it didn't seem like the popcorn was coating easily.  But, the time in the oven and stirring every 10 minutes really worked.  The popcorn was addicting and good all week long! 

  • 4 quarts popped popcorn
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Karo® Light OR Dark Corn Syrup
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter OR margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract

  1. Spray a large shallow roasting pan with cooking spray. Add popcorn and place in preheated 250°F oven while preparing caramel.
  2. Mix brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt in a heavy 2-quart saucepan. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Boil 5 minutes WITHOUT STIRRING. Remove from heat. Stir in baking soda and vanilla.
  4. Pour syrup mixture over warm popcorn, stirring to coat evenly.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven and spread on foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  6. Cool; break apart. Store in tightly covered container.
