a puff of caramel

While we were on babywatch at my oldest daughter's house, her husband made a wonderful batch of caramel corn.  We knew we needed to repeat such a yummy treat once we got back home.  After calling to get his recipe and the suggested improvements, we decided to just use the recipe on the bag of the Old Dutch Puffcorn and I must say it was delicious. Here you go:

Caramel  Corn - Old Dutch Style

1 package Old Dutch Puffcorn
1 cup butter (not margarine)
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Combine butter, brown sugar, and light corn syrup in a two quart sauce pan.  Cook on medium heat until mixture has melted.  Once mixture has melted, add the baking soda. (Note:  this will cause the mixture to foam.)

Pour Old Dutch Puffcorn into a large roaster pan.  Pour caramel mixture over the Puffcorn and stir until mixed.  

Place in the oven at 250 degrees for 45 minutes stirring every 10 - 15 minutes.   

Remove from the oven, pour onto waxed paper, and break apart.  Let cool, then devour *wink*

We have not tried this variation yet, but it sounds just as yummy:  For a scrumptious addition to this already delicious recipe, drizzle melted chocolate over the mixture after you remove it from the oven.
