Title: Baked Caramel Corn
Yield: 1 Servings
Categories: Snacks, Nuts, Popcorn

Ingredients:

1/2 c Butter
1 c Brown sugar
1/4 c Corn syrup
1/2 ts Salt
1/4 ts Baking soda
1/2 ts Vanilla
4 qt Popped popcorn
2/3 c Nuts; almonds; pecans -OR-
-peanuts


Pop popcorn and remove old maids. Spread popcorn in a large flat pan and
preheat in a 250~ oven. In a saucepan, melt butter and stir in brown sugar,
corn syrup, and salt. Stir constantly until the mixture comes to a boil,
and continue to boil without stirring for about 5 minutes (240~). Remove
from heat and add soda and vanilla, stirring until foamy. If nuts are used,
add them now, stirring until heated through and no longer clumped. Pour
syrup mixture over preheated popcorn and stir to coat. Bake for about 30
minutes, stirring 2 or 3 times to evenly distribute the coating. Bake
longer, about 60 minutes, for a more Crackerjacks-like taste. Cool, break
up and store airtight.
