Caramel Popcorn

**This is a family favorite snack and really easy to make**

Caramel Popcorn
3 bags microwave popcorn - popped and all kernels removed
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup light karo syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda

In a large saucepan, bring the butter, brown sugar salt and karo syrup to a boil.

Once it has reached a boil let it boil for 3-4 minutes for more chewy carmel corn or 5-6 minutes for more crunchy carmel corn. Make sure to set a timer and let it cook the entire time after it has begun to boil. Turn heat off after boiling the desired time. Add the vanilla and baking soda. **BE CAREFUL.....The vanilla will make it spit out at you**

Put all the popcorn in a LARGE stock pan. Pour caramel mixture over popcorn and stir until evenly coated.

Lay out on wax paper to cool. You can baggy up the popcorn after it has cooled.
