Happy, happy Tuesday!! Okay, so in my “plan” for the week, I was supposed to show you breakfast burritos yesterday, then today well people….. it may be tomorrow! Not sure! Sorry to disappoint! I will be honest though… It has been a little busier than the norm for us! Even my menu has changed for this week! Roast on sunday turned into ham! Breakfast burritos turned into eggs and toast… it happens and that’s the real world! SO, no breakfast burritos but I do have some delicious and sooooo yummy CARAMEL CORN! Which hey is better than a boring old burrito ( just kidding they are great too!) Caramel corn makes a fabulous gift! It is quite easy!
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Spray the bottom and sides of a large roasting pan. ( I use one that can hold a turkey, at least 6 quarts)
6 quarts of popped corn( I prefer stove popped, but you can do microwave, even store bought)
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 cups packed brown sugar( light or dark is fine)
1/2 cup corn syrup( again light or dark is fine)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
In a heavy saucepan over med to med low heat, melt the butter, once melted add brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. stir constantly with a wooden spoon or spatula until it comes to a boil. Once boiling do not TOUCH IT! Let it boil for 5 min, remove from heat, add baking soda and vanilla, and stir stir stir! it will get all foamy. Pour over popcorn and fold (not stir, stirring will break the popcorn up) popcorn until all coated. Bake for 1 hour, folding popcorn every 15 min. Let cool, break apart and enjoy! Store airtight! Great as a gift!
I hope you enjoy it! I will tell you for me it is hard to stop eating! I can usually walk away from sweets no problem, but…. this stuff is hard to walk away from! Also, I am watching a friends sweet boy this week, he gets to stay with us until Sunday! So the posts may be a little later or earlier each day! Please check back! I will post every day! Also , I always love hearing from you! Let me know if you make this and what you think!
Have a wonderful day!
