Easy Caramel Corn Recipe

Nothing says “circus” quite like popcorn! This fast-to-fix recipe for caramel corn seemed like the perfect item to bring to the annual block party/circus in our own small Indiana town. It doesn’t get better than this.

I think this is one of those recipes that you will find yourself turning to again and again when you want a fast sweet snack–circus or no circus! Enjoy.

How To Make Caramel Corn*

1 cup Margarine
2 cups Light Brown Sugar, Packed
1/2 cup Corn Syrup
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Vanilla
8 -15 cups Popped Popcorn

Pop the popcorn. Pour into large bowl and set aside.

Combine Margarine, Brown Sugar, Corn Syrup, and Salt in large sauce-pot. Use a size that is larger than you think you need–this stuff expands!

Keep stirring the mixture to keep it from scorching. Bring to a boil. After 5 minutes of boiling and stirring, remove from heat. Add in Baking Soda and Vanilla Extract. It will change color and become foamy. Mix well.

Pour over the popped popcorn. I use a spatula to smoosh the caramel sauce over the popcorn and to combine it all. If it looks like too much caramel sauce and not enough popcorn for your tastes–make more popcorn before the caramel cools!

*I most likely found this on about three years ago. It currently resides in my messy, handwritten cookbook of family faves.
