Caramel Corn ( and Peanut Butter Popcorn)

26 Nov

This is a family favorite and one that we have been making for years.  With the holidays coming, this is the perfect treat to whip up quick or a great gift to give.  This is the gooey addicting kind of caramel corn.  When I think of this, it takes me back to when my kids were small and it was a big treat to have this with some homemade slush and have movie night.   That wes before we worried about pumping our kids fulll of sugar!!!!!  Love this stuff.

INGREDIENTS

6 QUARTS POPPED CORN
3/4 CUPS SUGAR
3/4 CUPS BROWN SUGAR
1 CUBE BUTTER
1/2 CUP KARO SYRUP
1/4 CUP WATER

DIRECTIONS

PUT ALL INGREDIENTS EXCEPT POPCORN IN A HEAVY SAUCE PAN.  COOK UNTIL SOFT BALL STAGE  ( IF MIXTURE IS DROPPED INTO COLD WATER IT WILL FORM A SOFT BALL)  THIS DOES NOT TAKE VERY LONG.  REMOVE FROM HEAT AND ADD 1/4 TSP SODA AND 1 TSP VANILLA.  POUR OVER THE POPPED CORN.

 

This is another great popcorn recipe, gooey with the wonderful taste of peanut butter.I found this on Favorite Family Recipes  I think I could eat tree bark with peanut butter on it.  This would definitely get the thumbs down sign from Dave and could not be made in his presence. I can feel this recipe coming out when he is gone to convention in a few weeks–oh wait a minute, I have 10 pounds to lose before the wedding.  But then again, isn’t that what photo shop is for.
