Caramel covered popcorns
3 quarts lightly salted popped popcorn
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup sweet unsalted butter (USE REAL BUTTER)
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup peanuts (optional)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Place the popped corn in the largest baking pan you have (might have to do it in 2 batches if you only have a 9x13). You need to be able to stir the popcorn!
Melt butter in a very large saucepan and add brown sugar and corn syrup. Stirring CONSTANTLY, bring to a boil and boil 5 minute.
Add soda will foam up, so be ready.
Pour caramel over popcorn and mix well.
Bake popcorn one hour, stirring every 10-15 minute.
Remove from oven and cool completely. You'll have to stir it every once in a while so it doesn't stick together.
