Caramel Corn

One of the simplest snacks to prepare and share with a group is caramel corn.  It requires no utensils and everyone loves it—kids and adults.  A friend of ours shared this years ago when about 10 ladies descended on her house and visited while a traveling hair stylist took turns foiling our hair!  No kidding!  J  One of the best days of laughter I ever had with great friends.  And I got this awesome recipe out of it too!  This recipe has been a hit with old and new friends ever since. 

Caramel Corn

Air-pop some popcorn until you have 22 cups.
Set aside in a large, oven-safe dish.

In a saucepan on the stove combine:
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar (firmly packed)
½ cup light corn syrup

Boil for 5 minutes stirring constantly.

Take off heat and stir in:
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Pour over popcorn and turn to coat thoroughly. 
Bake in the oven at 300 degrees for 15 min., stirring every 5 minutes. 
Spread out on wax paper and let cool. 
The caramel corn should be crisp, not sticky.
