I started my holiday baking over the weekend with a few favorites and some new recipes. This Christmas Caramel Corn was a recipe I had written down years ago and never attempted to make. Until now.
The only reason it is labeled as Christmas is because I used green and red m&ms when I put it together. You could change them out for any other candy and have similar results!
Christmas Caramel Corn
1 bag m&ms
6 quarts popped popcorn
1 c butter
1/2 c corn syrup
1/2 c brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp vanilla
In a saucepan,combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Stir in vanilla and baking soda. In a large roasting pan, combine popcorn, caramel mixture, and m&ms. Toss until completely coated.
Place in a 200 degree oven for 20 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then stir gently. Remove from oven and let cool completely on a baking sheet.
