On the Third Day of Baking

On the third day of baking...we made...
Caramel Corn
 Yes another not true "baking" item...but again, another holiday favorite and a staple in our house. I recently got my mom's recipe and it worked out so slick! Even the kids helped!

You'll need:
Paper bag
Popcorn (5qt popped)
1/4 c Corn Syrup
1/2 c butter or margarine
1c packed Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
Air Popcorn Popper

1. Pop 5 quarts of popcorn, about 1/2 paper bag full. 

2. Microwave corn syrup,butter, sugar, and salt for 2.5 minutes then stir. Cook again in the microwave for 2.5 more minutes, then stir. Add 1/2 tsp baking soda, then stir.

3. Pour microwave mixture over popped popcorn (already in the paper bag).

4. Cook for 1.5 minutes in the microwave. Stir (and shake).

5. Repeat step 4.
6. Cook for 30 seconds in the microwave. Stir.
7. Let cool. Enjoy!!
