I made this for my Stamp a Stack classes last week. This is the most requested recipe that I own! CAUTION, this is ADDICTING and has quite a few calories! But it is OHHHHHHH SOOOO GOOD and easy to make!
Microwave Caramel Corn
½ C. butter
1 C. brown sugar
¼ C. dark Karo syrup
Dash of salt
Microwave on high 4 mn. in a glass bowl. Stir after 2 mn.
½ t. baking soda
1/8 t. vanilla
Stir until fluffy. Pour this over the puffed popcorn (I use one full bag of the popcorn) that is in a large Tupperware bowl (or one that is ok to go back into the microwave.) Stir this up, then microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute.
Spread this out on wax paper to let it cool. If you want added sweetness, melt some chocolate almond bark and drizzle over the caramel corn. I put this in the refridgerator so the chocolate gets hardened. Then take out and break it up into smaller pieces.
Note: Here is a photo of the puffcorn that I get. This is the secret to yummy caramel corn! I have found it at Safeway and Albertsons in AZ.
