Carmel Corn, a Fall Tradition at Our House.
With the fall comes the apple cider and doughnuts, bond fires, hay rides, and I make Carmel corn!
I saw this three months ago when it was posted as Crazy Karo Crunch on blogingwithchildren.blogspot.com She noted her Grandmother had made it and it tastes a lot like the flavors of Werther's candy over popcorn! And it DOES! We love it! Plus, it is oh so easy to make.
Ingredients for Caramel Corn:
1/2 c. butter
1/2 C. light Karo syrup
1 C. brown sugar (I used light.)
1/2 t. vanilla
2 quarts popped corn (I used Boy Scout pop in the microwave, 2 bags.)
Pop the corn and VERY IMPORTANT, pick out every single un-popped kernel, or old maids as we call them, and spread only the popped kernels out on the prepared pan.
In a heavy bottomed medium pan combine the butter, Karo, and brown sugar and stir until it boils over high heat, Reduce the heat to medium-high and boil for EXACTLY 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla.
Allow to cool, break apart, and serve!
Do not lick the hot spoon and hot Caramel. It will be tempting!
Do not add baking soda!
I only have one dirty pan, a spoon, and a measuring cup to clean up!
