Old Fashioned Caramel Popcorn

“If there’s something strange in your neighborhood …
If there’s something weird and it don’t look good ”
Don’t call Ghostbusters, treat them to a serving of  Caramel Popcorn!



Caramel Popcorn

14 cups popped popcorn

2 cups brown sugar, packed

1 cup butter

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

Place popped corn in buttered oven-proof pan and keep warm in 200 degree oven.   Combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt in large saucepan.  Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Boil, without stirring 5 minutes.  Remove mixture from heat and add baking soda (candy will foam).  Stir well.  One cup peanuts can be added to mixture, then  pour mixture over popped corn and toss with buttered forks to distribute evenly.  Spread onto two ungreased baking sheets.  Bake at 200 degrees  one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.  Cool completely, break into clusters and store tightly covered.  Enjoy!

Happy Halloween,
