Movie night popcorn...

Caramel corn

8 cups popped popcorn
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
6 Tbsp butter or margarine
3 Tbsp light corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp vanilla

Put popcorn into baking dish (make sure there are no kernels left). Measure the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and salt into a 1 1/2 quart saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil stirring with a wooden spoon until it boils. Stop stirring and cook for 5 minutes. Turn off and remove the pan from the burner. Stir in the baking soda and vanilla. Pour the mixture over the popcorn suing a rubber scraper to scrape the pan and gently stir popcorn to incorporate all together. Put the pan into the oven and cook at 300 degrees for about 15 minutes. Remove, stir with wooden spoon and put it back in for about 10 more minutes. When done, remove it to a large bowl and let cool.
Turn on that movie and enjoy it together while you watch! :)
