Growing up, a smile always filled my face when I went over my grandma’s house and smelled something yummy baking in the oven. One of those wonderful smells was her baked carmel corn. As Christmas neared, I had to make some. The recipe is super easy! It even works with microwaved extra butter popcorn. (I know, I tried!)
Here’s Grandma’s recipe! I typed it out exactly how she has it on her recipe card:
Baked Caramel Corn
Melt butter; stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; then turn heat down to medium. Boil 5 more minutes without stirring.
Remove from heat; stir in soda and vanilla. Pour over the popped corn. Mix well. (Use large roasting pan.)
Turn into two large shallow baking or roasting pans.
Bake 225 degrees oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
Remove from oven; cool completely.
Grandpa likes dark Karo.
It’s a hit with all the kids! I might need to make another batch tomorrow!
