Every Christmas I make caramel corn to give to family and friends. It’s really easy to make. This is a not so healthy version. But heck it’s Christmas!

You’ll need:

6 Quarts popped popcorn

2 Cups dry roasted peanuts (optional)

1  Cup butter

2 Cups brown sugar

1/2 Cup corn syrup

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp vanilla

Preheat  oven to 250 degrees F

Place cooked popcorn  and nuts in a bowl large enough so you will be able to mix it. I use a large disposable aluminum pan  (which I wash and reuse). After it’s mixed you can put it right into the oven. One less dish to wash.

Melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in the brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil. Stir constantly until it boils. Let it slow boil 4 minutes without stirring.

Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and baking soda. Pour slowly over the popcorn. Stirring to mix well.

Spread a thin layer in shallow baking pan(s) you may need two depending on the size.

Bake for 1 hour. Stirring every 15 minutes. Let it completely cool then break it up into pieces.

After you taste this you may not want to give any away. Enjoy!
