• 1⁄2 cup of popcorn kernels popped
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1⁄4 cup white Karo syrup
  • 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda (depending on how long you bake it for)
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla

Cook butter, sugar and Karo on medium heat until it boils…Boil for 2 minutes, then take it off heat and add 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda, then add 1⁄2 teaspoon of vanilla.

Pour caramel over popcorn in a bowl. Next spread it on a cookie sheet and bake at 250 for 10 to 30 minutes depending on how crunchy you would like the popcorn. Take popcorn out and stir it around and put it back in for another 10 minutes until you've done it for a total of 30 minutes. My family likes it gooey so we DO NOT bake the popcorn, we just dump the caramel on top, stir it around and eat it!!

*Cool tip* You can take 1⁄4 a cup of popcorn kernels and put them in a paper lunch sack taped shut and pop for about 1 min and 40 seconds in the microwave. Do that twice and you have a ton of fresh popcorn to dump the caramel over.
