-1 cup butter
-1/2 cup corn syrup
-2 cups brown sugar
-1 tsp salt
-1 tsp vanilla
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-6 quarts popped corn
*Optional* nuts (almonds, peanuts, pecans)
Preheat 250 degrees.
Melt the butter, corn syrup, brown sugar and salt together over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil stirring constantly. Boil without stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the soda and vanilla. It will foam! Pour over the popped corn and mix well. Spread the coated corn onto large buttered cookie sheets and bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Let it cool and eat!
Little hands won't be able to stay out of it!
