Halloween Killer Caramel Corn Recipe

            KILLER CARAMEL CORN          
                                                                                    

Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter                                                             
  •  4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  •  2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  •  3 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract ( optional)
  •   6 quarts popped popcorn-- I use 5 regular packs of microwave popcorn

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (95 degrees C). Place popcorn in a very large bowl.
  2. 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 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in soda and vanilla, (and optional maple flavoring). Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat.
  3. Place in two large shallow baking dishes and bake in preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for 1 hour. Sprinkle with sea salt lightly, each time you stir.  Remove from oven and let cool completely before breaking into pieces.

Ah, you've spoiled it for me Kathy. I love carmel corn, and know it's not good for me. But now that I know how bad it is, I'll feel too guilty if I eat it!
