Oven Caramel Corn
I prefer white popcorn over yellow. It pops smaller, but it is not tough like the yellow.
This is for a very large batch, divide ingredients by 3 for a smaller amount. Caramel corn is great for gift-giving on Valentine's Day!
45 c. popped corn—white is best
3 c. brown sugar
3 sticks real butter
3/4 c. light corn syrup
1 ½ tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. baking soda
Divide popped corn between 4 -l3x9 pans. Salt lightly with popcorn salt. In saucepan heat brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt. Cook and stir until bubbly around edges. Continue cooking over medium heat 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in soda. Pour on corn and stir until coated. Bake 2 hours at 200˚ stirring every 30minutes. Store in tightly covered container.
