Caramel Corn

Thought I would share a new favorite recipe around here - home made caramel corn!  We first made this for our block party back in the summer, and are glad for any excuse to make it again.  Easy and yummy.  Enjoy!

Caramel Corn
16 cups air popped pop corn
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract

Pop popcorn and put it in a large, lightly greased baking pan in a 250 degree oven to keep warm.

In a large sauce pan, combine butter, sugar, corn syrup and salt.  Book over medium heat stirring constantly until it boils.

Boil for 5 minutes without stirring.  Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and vanilla.

Pour syrup over warm popcorn and return tot he oven for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove from oven and pour onto a foil lines cookie sheet to cool.  Once it is cool, break apart into pieces and enjoy!
