Caramel Popcorn

Popcorn is a favorite snack at our house, especially for my little boy. Every once in a while we make caramel popcorn for a special treat. We usually have to share it with our friends and neighbors otherwise I would mostly likely eat most of it myself. It's a little addicting, but yummy!

Caramel Popcorn
recipe from my friend, JoDee

14 T. butter (my original recipe calls for 1 c. butter, but I don't use that much)
2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. corn syrup
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. unpopped popcorn

Pop popcorn. (I use my air popper and I make three batches.)

Bring butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt to a boil, mixing well. Continue boiling (over med - med high heat) for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Take off heat and mix in vanilla and soda.

Pour over each bowl of popcorn and mix well. Spread onto 2 cookie sheets. Bake at 225 for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Enjoy!
