Ingredients

  • 3-6 quarts popped popcorn
  • 1 stick butter (margarine works, but isn’t nearly as good)
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. corn syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda

Instructions

  1. Put 3-6 quarts of popped corn in brown paper grocery bag, set aside. Make sure there aren’t any unpopped kernels in the bag.
  2. Combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt and put in microwave. Boil on high for 2 minutes.
  1. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon soda. Pour caramel over popcorn,close the bag and shake. Put in microwave, cook on high, 1 minute. Shake, cook on high for 1 minute. Shake, spread out on wax paper or cookie sheets to cool.

Comments

  • You’ll need to break up the big chunks before it cools, and cool it completely before putting it into a container.
  • I tend to go with 5-6 quarts of popcorn, and the caramel coating doesn’t end up quite as think as if you used 3. Depends what you like.
  • This is best when it’s fresh, but in winter (when I tend to make it), it lasts quite a while.
  • If you try making this in summer, plan to eat it immediately, because it doesn’t do well in the humidity.
