How to make Caramel Popcorn

How to make Caramel Popcorn


10 Cups plain popped popcorn

2 cups brown sugar

1/2 cup dark corn syrup (Karo)

1 cup butter

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Place the popped popcorn into two deep baking pans.

You may use roasting pans or disposable roasting pans.

Set aside. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).

Combine the butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup in a non-stick saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly for 5 minutes.

Turn off the heat, and stir in the baking soda and vanilla.

The mixture will be light and foamy. Immediately pour over the popcorn in the pans, and stir to coat.

Bake for 1 hour, removing the pans, and giving them each a good stir and break apart every 15 minutes.

Allow to cool completely. Serve or store in airtight containers or resealable bags. Always makes a great gift idea! Enjoy!
