Candy Caramel Corn!



My husband found this recipe in our community magazine and it is totally addicting!!
Every time he makes it we have to share so we don't eat it all ourselves in one day!


CANDY CARAMEL CORN

INGREDIENTS:

5 quarts plain air popped popcorn
1 cup butter
2 cups light brown sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
20 “fun size” Twix candy bars, chopped (or your favorite chocolate bar)

HOW TO MAKE:

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Place popcorn in a large bowl and set aside.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and vanilla extract. Pour caramel in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat. Gently stir until all of the popcorn is covered.


Place popcorn on two large shallow baking sheets and bake in preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for about an hour. Remove popcorn from oven and let cool completely.


Break popcorn into pieces and mix in chopped Twix candy bars. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.


ENJOY!!

I think husbands must make the best caramel corn. My husband made some last week. It seems like a very similar recipe. And you are right... it is addicting!
