Caramel Corn

Gene, my dad, and Justin love this recipe. You'll never want to buy expensive caramel corn again after you try this easy recipe.

Caramel Corn

1 cup margarine or butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/3 cup corn syrup (light)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

Boil the first 4 ingredients for 5 minutes (set the timer when it comes to boil)
Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and vanilla.
Pour over a big bowl of popcorn (2 batches of popcorn and make sure to remove unpopped seeds)
Spread on a big cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven at 250 degrees for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
Cool completely and store in zip lock bags. Very addictive ~ you may not even need zip locks because this won't last very long.

Optional:  you can add peanuts to make this even better!


  1. thanks for this one.......and I have done chicken like that before. also one time my chicken was not crisp enough for your dad. I got mad and dipped it and deep fried it in oil. He loved it and really did not know was the same chicken hahaha.

  2. Now that's truly funny, Nancy! Necessity is the mother of invention.
