Super Bowl Caramel Popcorn!
- 2 100 calorie air popped popcorn — when popped, remove 1 cup of the popcorn and enjoy it while you are preparing the rest of the recipe
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees
- Prepare popcorn using the directions on the bag. Line a cookie sheet with non stick foil and spray with cooking spray. Inspect the popcorn and remove any un-popped kernels. Place in the preheated oven.
- In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt. Cook over medium heat. Bring to a boil and stir continually (we don’t want this to burn).
- After it boils, turn the heat down to low and do not stir for 3-5 minutes. You may want to take a heat proof rubber spatula and scrape down the sides of the saucepan if needed.
- Remove from the heat, stir in the vanilla extract and baking soda.
- Pour the mixture over the popcorn and toss to coat entirely.
- Bake about 35-50 minutes, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes. This is an important step so the popcorn does not burn.
- When finished, cool completely. You may want to break apart some of the larger pieces before serving
