Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Linking up with Aimee over at AJCrazies

I made caramel popcorn for snack at church last night.  It'd kinda late for Baker's Review Wednesday, but I'm going to do it anyway.  I normally make this with margarine but I made it with butter this time and liked it way better, plus, they seemed not so chewy.

Here's the recipe:

4 qts. popped popcorn
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Put popcorn in paper grocery bag.  In microwaveable bowl, mix butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt.  Boil for 3 minutes, stirring every minute.  Add baking soda; stir.  Pour caramel mixture over popcorn. Close up bag and shake hard.  Microwave for 1.5 minutes.  Shake again.  Cook for 30 seconds longer.

We only left a little bit at home and that was definitely fought over!!!   

Love and God's Peace,
