Oven-Made Caramel Corn

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

7-8 cups popped corn, plain
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup margarine
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

Pop corn and pour into two 9x13-inch cake pans. Set oven to 275 degrees. In a 4-quart sauce pan, mix brown sugar, margarine, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil and boil, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Add vanilla and baking soda. The soda will cause it to foam and expand in volume. Pour over popped corn, 1/2 at a time. Stir corn to coat all. Place in the preheated oven and bake, stirring every 15 minutes. Bake for one hour. Store in an airtight container.
