caramel corn

Caramel Corn


2 bags of microwave popcorn
1 stick margarine,
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp. baking soda
1 large brown paper bag

Pop the popcorn and place in large brown paper bag. 

Combine margarine, brown sugar, and syrup in a 4 1/2 C.Tupperware Heat 'N Serve.  Heat on high for 5 minutes, stirring once every 2 1/2 minutes.  Stir in baking soda.  Mixture will foam!   

Pour over popcorn in bag and shake.  Place bag in microwave and heat on high for 1 minute.  Shake, heat 1 more minute, shake. 

Store in airtight container. 

(Note:  There's no reason this recipe wouldn't work with standard popped popcorn.  Place popped corn in an 8-Cup Heat 'N Serve.  Pour syrup over corn, seal, and immediately shake well.  Heat in microwave on high as above, etc.)

(Note from Terri:  "Just thought you would like to know:  I have used this recipe for years!!  You can use regular popcorn, in fact I think it tastes better than the microwave popcorn.  And a little hint...lightly spray the inside of the paperbag with Pam Cooking Spray-no mess at all."
