Caramel Corn

The kids and I made this for a family movie night last weekend.  Delicious!  It was baked just right to get a good crunch, not chewy.  I split the measurements in half to make just one pan and we still have enough left over to munch on the next few days.

1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
5 quarts popped popcorn

Preheat oven to 250.  Place popcorn in a very large bowl.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.  Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Boil without stirring 4 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in a soda and vanilla.  Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat.

Place in two large shallow baking dishes and bake in preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for 1 hour.  Remove and let cool completely before breaking into pieces.
