Christmas Caramel Corn

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.
