The Best Caramel Corn Ever!

I've never tried making caramel corn until just a few weeks ago over Christmas. It was super easy and really fun to make! It is also very, very yummy! I used Paula Deen's Recipe and it is definitely the best I've ever tasted!
 1 cup butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 t. salt
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 t. baking soda
Combine first 4 ingredients and boil for 5 minutes over medium heat.
Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. 
The really fun part was adding the baking soda! I felt like I was conducting a science experiment! (Jimmy is stirring.)
Pour over 8 quarts popped corn. Stir to coat well. Bake in large roaster or pan for 1 hour at 200 degrees F. stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on wax paper to dry.

This is such a delicious snack, but I must warn you it could become quite addicting!
Jaclyn, my official taste tester, gives it her thumbs up seal of approval!

Janet- that looks great! Paula Deen has the best recipes, doesn't she?! Are you addicted now? That is usually what happens to me when I try something I really end up loving- xo Diana

Oh my, that looks delicous. Caramel corn is a favorite of mine. I love Paul Deen! She uses LOTS of butter when she cooks, and sometimes I watch her show.

My family loves caramel corn, but I've never made it either. I never even pop my own. We just use the microwave stuff. My kids would love this!
