Why do I not think to make Carmel corn more often. Inexpensive and easy to make. Translated that means cheap and simple or simple and cheap. Everybody loves Carmel corn. Perfect snack. Makes an awesome gift.
This is my mother-in-laws recipe she kindly shared with me many years ago. She use to actually sell this by the boat load. I am very happy to share with all of you.
7 quarts or around 16 cups popped popcorn. Set aside in a large bowl. 2 cups brown sugar, 2 sticks butter, 2 cups white Karo syrup, 1 teaspoon salt.
Melt brown sugar, butter, Karo syrup and salt in a large pan. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon baking soda to boiling mixture and stir.
Quickly pour over popcorn and stir to combine. Pour onto greased sheets and place in a 250 degree oven for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes. Break into pieces and store in a container with a lid. ENJOY!
