I love popcorn. Salty popcorn! But I have this other problem, I really love caramel corn.
This popcorn is so addicting, you can't just eat one bite. But, you can package it up in cute little popcorn containers that you can find in the dollar section at Target...and you can give them as gifts to friends, family, teachers, co-workers....or in my case...for road trips!!! Going to Austin this weekend, and this will be grand to share with the other ladies over much needed catch up time and stories! :o)
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 bags of popped corn, REMOVE SEEDS (5 qt popped)
16 oz. package chocolate coating, melted
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cups mini marshmallows
2 cups Mini Reese's Peanut Butter cups, chopped
Pan melt butter, stir in sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat. Stir in baking soda and vanilla. Gradually pour over popped corn. Mix well. I used a disposable lasagna foil pan. Bake at 250 degrees for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Break apart and place in large bowl.
Melt the chocolate coating completely (according to package directions). Mix in peanut butter until combined and pour over cooled caramel corn. Allow to cool about ten minutes. Add in marshmallows and chopped candy. Pour onto wax paper to harden. Store in airtight Ziploc or tupperware containers.
