Carmel Corn always seems to taste better on a cold wintry night. You can add M&M’s, pretzels, candy corn and peanuts, if you like. This is a perfect snack for a Halloween party!

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1-2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp butter flavor
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Peanuts/pecans (optional)
  • 8 quarts popped popcorn

Directions

Step 1

Prepare and pop 8 quarts of popcorn; set aside.

Step 2

Omitting the baking soda and nuts, combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for five minutes, then add the baking soda.

Step 3

Pour mixture over the popcorn and nuts (if you’re using them) and mix well until all corn and nuts are coated evenly.

For crisper corn bake one hour in a 250 degree oven, stirring occasionally.
