My grandmother used to make this recipe on holidays. Caramel Corn is sweet and crunchy and the perfect treat for those crisp fall days leading up to Halloween. Add nuts and raisins to the mixture for an extra special treat.
Heat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pop 1 cup of popcorn and put it in a buttered roast pan.
Melt 1 cup of butter. Stir in 2 cups brown sugar,1/2 cup corn syrup and 1 tsp salt.
Bring to a full boil stirring constantly. Let mixture boil for 5 minutes and remove from heat. Do Not Stir.
Stir in 1/2 tsp soda and 1 tsp vanilla. Pour over popcorn and mix together well.
Bake for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes. Spread out onto parchment paper to cool.
