Homemade Caramel Popcorn Recipe

My husband loves popcorn...matter of fact, it's one of his favorite snacks. He loves it plain, salted, buttered or flavored with other goodies. Years ago when we first got together, we found a recipe for homemade Caramel Popcorn that we enjoy making together. Once you are done making the recipe, let it cool and store it in an airtight container.

Caramel Popcorn Recipe

5 qt. popped corn
1 cup butter (not margarine)
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

While keeping popcorn warm in a 250 degree oven, place butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt in a saucepan and boil to a hard ball stage. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. Drizzle syrup over popped corn and stir. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool on your cookie sheet. Store in an airtight container.
