Homemade Caramel Popcorn Recipe

1 cup packed, dark brown sugar
½ cup sugar
⅛ cup water
⅓ cup Rich & Creamy MELT® Organic Buttery Spread
1 tablespoon light molasses
1½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
12 cups popcorn, air-popped and unsalted

1. Preheat oven to 250°. Coat a large jelly roll pan with cooking spray.

2. Combine the sugars, water, MELT® and molasses in a medium saucepan. Boil over medium heat. Once boiling, cook for 5 minutes, stirring once. Remove from heat.

3. Add the vanilla, baking soda and salt, stirring to mix.

4. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir to coat.

5. Spread the popcorn in a single layer in your jelly roll pan and bake for 45 minutes, turning the popcorn every 15 minutes so it does not burn.

6. Remove from the oven and break up clumps. Let cool 15 minutes and enjoy!

I like this recipe , but I won't be making it until the weather cools down since I don't want the oven for almost an hour. It should taste very good.
